Project Outputs

A key output of the Seals in Medieval Wales project will be on-line resources for further study. A searchable record of all the seals recorded by SiMeW will be made publically accessible through CADAIR, Aberystwyth University’s Online Research Repository, at the end of the project, while a significant number of high-resolution images of seals will be hosted by the National Library of Wales. A virtual education pack for teachers and students will also be provided by SiMeW in 2012. As well as virtual resources, SiMeW will produce a range of published material. The SiMeW team will be writing a number of articles related to aspects of the project, while a major academic book will contribute to our understanding of seals in medieval Europe.

The Seals in Medieval Wales project team is engaged in an active outreach programme, presenting seminar and conference papers, workshops and talks to a range of academic, professional and other interested audiences. The SiMeW team welcome enquiries from academics, heritage professionals, local and family history groups, colleges and schools which may be interested in a talk or workshop related to medieval seals.

In spring 2012 SiMeW will showcase some of the material identified by the project in an exhibition hosted at the National Library of Wales, enabling seals to be presented to a broad audience. After the National Library exhibition closes a travelling exhibition will visit archives, museums and libraries across Wales. Please contact the SiMeW team if your organisation might be interested in hosting the travelling exhibition.
