Institute for Welsh Estates at Bangor University

On Friday 15 November a dinner was held for families who have donated estate papers to Bangor University Archives.  Following a welcome by Professor John Hughes (Vice-Chancellor), Einion Thomas (University Archivist and Welsh Librarian) drew attention to a selection of documents found amongst the fifty or so collections of estate papers housed in the University Archives.  Nia Powell (Lecturer in Welsh History) talked about the main aims of the institute and discussed the history of several estates in north Wales, whilst Dr Lowri Ann Rees (Lecturer in Modern History) presented an over view of the nature of estates in south Wales.
