A new website will enable people to explore the history of more than 100,000 archaeological sites across Wales.

Archwilio, which translates from Welsh as "to explore", catalogues the Historic Environment Records (HER) of Wales and contains details of excavation works as well as images of artefacts uncovered over the years.

People can search the website records for information on the more well-known sites such castles and hill forts, as well as investigating smaller sites such as ruined cottages.

The website, which is has been developed as a partnership between four Welsh Archaeological Trusts and will be launched tomorrow by Welsh heritage minister Alun Ffred Jones.
