The following teaser is from the May 8, 2017 BBC News.
A new register recording historical Welsh place names to protect them for future generations has been launched. About 350,000 names are already recorded on the online tool, thought to be the first of its kind in the UK.
The register will provide insights into land use, the archaeology and history of Wales and reflects how place names have evolved. Economy Secretary Ken Skates said the statutory list would help “keep these precious names alive”. It was introduced as a requirement as part of the Welsh Government’s Historic Environment (Wales) Act.
