Amgueddfa Cymru holds almost 1 million items that tell us about life in Wales, from when people lived in caves 250,000 years ago, to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Many of these objects are of huge financial value, others are simple and everyday, significant for the insights they give to the daily lives of the people who made them.
