Archaeology fan? Wales has an app for that

Wales has introduced the Archwilio app, which will allow smartphone and tablet users to "access information about archaeological sites on maps covering the whole country." The free app will also let users connect and post their own updates.

"Archwilio puts the heritage of Wales on the map.It makes it possible for anyone with a suitable smartphone to access information on the thousands of known archaeological and historic sites in Wales, said minister for culture John Griffiths at the National Museum in Cardiff. "The historic environment records of Wales were already available online, but with the launch of the app Wales will make this wealth of information, collected by generations of investigators, available to mobile users, allowing them a glimpse of the hidden heritage all around us."
