Roman fort in Pembrokeshire to be discovered with app
A new tablet and smartphone app has been developed to allow the public to access archaeological records and information about sites of historical interest in Wales.
The app, named Archwillio, was developed by the University of South Wales after being commissioned by the four Welsh archaeological trusts: Clwyd-Powys, Dyfed, Glamorgan-Gwent and Gwynedd. The app is said to provide information about famous and the slightly lesser known historical sites of Wales, including the Roman fort found earlier this year near Wiston, Pembrokeshire, just inland from popular Tenby cottages.
The app will allow its users to interact with the records of a specific site where the public will be able to edit and add to the information as well as upload their own photos, as reported in this BBC article. It is hoped that through this public interaction more information about Wales’ historical sites will be uncovered and shared more easily and that this beautiful area will be further promoted.
