Raglan Sense of Roots

Dr Cheryl Morgan of Raglan Local Archives will be at Digital Past 2013 talking about the latest digital projects that have been taking place within the Raglan and District Local History Group. These projects include:

•A Digital Story Telling Project - a digital archive of local records and digital media at working with youth groups to digitise and catalogue over 800 historical photographs, maps, wills and other documents, and the creation of digital stories

•The Raglan Local Ways Project - linking Raglan Primary School Children with long time residents. A CD was published including old photo's and video records of elderly residents reflecting on the changes in Raglan Village in the last century.  In the past two years, the Raglan History Detectives after school club has focused on learning history through studying and conserving the graves in St Cadoc's Churchyard.

Raglan Village Domesday Wiki site as a repository for local historical records and memories.  Since its establishment the wiki has had over 30,000 hits from around the world.

•The current QR based project for Heritage Landmarks
