Slatesite is part of AGOR, providing digitised information on
extractive industries for The People's Network.
This site will offer a wide range of materials for learning
about Wales' slate quarries, the lives of the quarrymen, about
the uses for slate, and about the slate areas' ecology. The site
should be completed by October 2002.
The Slatesite project is based at the Caernarfon Record
Office, part of Gwynedd Council.
A sister site, CWM, prepared by University of Wales, Swansea's
Library and Information Department, will tell the story of coal
and colliers in Wales.
Slatesite is being created by a partnership including Gwynedd
Council's Archives Service, the Welsh Slate Museum (National
Museums and Galleries of Wales), Cynefin Environmental Ltd.,
Faenol Cyf., and Howard Bowcott (sculptor).
