The Institute for the Study of Welsh Estates (ISWE) is dedicated to promoting research into the history, impact and functioning of estates on a Wales-wide basis.

For centuries, estates have formed an important part of Welsh life.  It was here that much of the social, cultural, political, economic and industrial fabric of the communities of Wales was stitched together. Their impacts on the history and landscapes of the nation have been profound, potentially unparalleled. 

ISWE seeks to advance outstanding research into the subject and ensure that the knowledge we generate regarding Wales’ past is accessible and contributes constructively to its future.
