18.10.2017

University of Wales Trinity Saint David is delighted to announce that Dr Louise Emanuel has been appointed as a Royal Commissioner for the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales.  

The appointment is bestowed by Her Majesty, The Queen. The Royal Commission offers a range of services to individuals, groups and organisations interested in the archaeology and built heritage of Wales.

Dr Emanuel leads Carmarthen Business School’s new innovative sustainable business portfolio. Dr Emanuel said: “I am honoured to have been appointed as a Royal Commissioner.  I am very passionate about our engagement with the historic environment and how it helps us to develop a sense of place; we have much to learn from our past in the creation of a more sustainable future for our communities in Wales. 

"I am looking forward to starting my new role in the coming weeks and contributing to the excellent work that the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales is conducting with communities and within historic landscapes across Wales.”

UWTSD’s Dr Margaret Inman, Head of School of Business, said: “Carmarthen Business School is delighted that Louise has been appointed to this prestigious position. Sustainability is at the heart of our business programmes in Carmarthen and working with the Royal Commission, Louise will be able to contribute her extensive expertise in this area to the benefit of the commission and to the students at UWTSD.”

The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales has a leading national role in developing and promoting understanding of the archaeological, built and maritime heritage of Wales, as the originator, curator and supplier of authoritative information for individual, corporate and governmental decision makers, researchers, and the general public.

The landscape and built heritage of Wales result from people’s interaction with the natural world over thousands of years. Since it was established in 1908, the Royal Commission has led the way in researching and explaining the remains of that interaction – the archaeology and the historic buildings we see around us.

The Royal Commission is based in Aberystwyth and is sponsored by the Welsh Government. The Chairman and Commissioners direct the investigations by expert staff, who employ the latest technology to provide authoritative and up to date information to the public.
