The Sites and Monuments Record for the Clwyd-Powys area is now available on-line. Selected data from the Sites and Monuments Record has recently been deposited with the Archaeology Data Service and can be searched alongside other archaeological data in their catalogue through ArchSearch at ads.ahds.ac.uk. Information available on each of the 33,000 sites included within this database includes site name, type, period and grid reference, with a description of the site, and lists of associated bibliographic references and archaeological interventions. Both keyword and geographical searching can be carried out.

An index of information held by all four of the Welsh Sites and Monuments Records, the National Monuments Record and data held by Cadw is also available for on-line searching from the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales' website at www.rcahmw.org.uk (follow the links to 'on-line databases'). This database, the Core Archaeological Record iNdex (CARN), provides a useful starting point for searching for archaeological information for the whole of Wales. Although the information available here is an index, providing key information only such as site name, type, period and grid reference, it also provides contact details for the appropriate organisation(s) so that further information on any site can be requested.
