The Welsh Perry & Cider Society and George Ewart
Evans Centre for Storytelling are collaborating on a project titled
'The Heritage of Orchards and Cider Making in Wales'
Lead Investigator: Emily Underwood-Lee (FCI), Project
Associate: Catrin James.
A collection of oral histories will be recorded and archived.
These cider maker oral histories, in the form of a combination of
video recordings, sound recordings, and transcripts, will be made
available through the WPCS website to give audiences a more
personal experience and understanding of heritage, and to also
ensure that this detail is correctly documented and stored for
future generations. Information about archived material will also
be listed online, so that it is researchable and easily accessible,
i.e. links to St Fagans, Peoples Collection Wales, local record
offices etc. A project report will be completed and made publicly
available. A mobile exhibition will be housed with the Welsh Perry
and cider Society to ensure the project findings are widely
disseminated. It is also anticipated that a number of peer reviewed
articles will report the findings of the project.
