Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies
The Centre was established by the University of Wales in 1985, with a well-stocked library which has grown over the years into an invaluable resource for Welsh and Celtic Studies. The Centre’s first Director was Professor R. Geraint Gruffydd, and its first project was the preparation of an edition of the work of the Poets of the Princes, published in seven volumes (1991–6).
In 1993 the Centre moved to purpose-built accommodation adjacent to the National Library of Wales. In the same year Professor Geraint H. Jenkins took over as Director, and the following fifteen years saw a considerable expansion in the Centre’s activities, with three research projects soon running concurrently.
