Welcome to Gathering the Jewels.

Here you will find over 20,000 images of objects, books, letters, aerial photographs and other items from museums, libraries and record offices in Wales.


All of the images on the website are digital images of original items usually held by a museum, library or archive service. Images may be downloaded and used for personal use, and for most non-commercial educational purposes - this includes use by teachers, pupils and students, for research or teaching purposes, within the classroom, the school, or on a school or college intranet.

However, copyright clearance must be obtained for any other use of images, for example on a publicly available website or in a publication. Requests for permission to use images should be sent to the repository which holds the original item, as they hold copyright in the digital images and digital video clips. The name of the relevant repository, and link to their contact details, appears under every image.
