ArchaeoDomus Archaeological & Heritage Services was started in 2014 near Lampeter in West Wales, with the aim of offering high quality archaeological and heritage building services. The name came around after thinking of something to encapsulate what my biggest interest is...Archaeo - ancient, Domus - dwelling/house!

With a background in archaeology and restoration, I have worked within the historic environment for the last 10 years on a number of different projects. For the last two years I have been working as a Historic Buildings Investigator with the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, where I have developed a comprehensive knowledge of the historic environment in Wales and England.
I hold a BA Joint Honours in Archaeology and Anthropology and a PgCert in Social Anthropology from the University of Wales, Lampeter, and a Certificate in Buildings Archaeology from the University of Sussex. I am also a member of the Vernacular Architecture Group and an Affiliate of the Institute for Archaeologists.
The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW) has a leading national role in developing and promoting understanding of the archaeological, built and maritime heritage of Wales, as the originator, curator and supplier of authoritative information for individual, corporate and governmental decision makers, researchers, and the general public.
The landscape and built heritage of Wales result from people’s interaction with the natural world over thousands of years. Since it was established in 1908, the Royal Commission has led the way in researching and explaining the remains of that interaction – the archaeology and the historic buildings we see around us.
The Royal Commission holds a unique collection of photographs, maps, images, publications and reports within its archive, The National Monuments Record of Wales, which can be consulted on our online database Coflein or by making an enquiry to our Reader Services section.
The Royal Commission is based in Aberystwyth and is sponsored by The National Assembly for Wales. The Chairman and Commissioners direct the investigations by our expert staff, who employ the latest technology to provide authoritative and up to date information to the public.
The National Monuments Record of Wales (NMRW) was formally instituted in 1963 as the Royal Commission's record arm and now holds the national collection of information about the historic environment of Wales from the earliest times to the present day. It includes almost 2 million photographs and many thousands of drawings, surveys, reports and maps within the following collections: Main Record File Series, The Drawing Collection, Photographic Negative Collection, Aerial Photographic Collection, Ordnance Survey Maps, Special Collections, Digital Archive, and the Library Collections.
