Abstract
The collective memory has been the element of new regional policy in Wales since 1999, when it received autonomy, and when the National Assembly was established. The maintenance of sense of national identity and the development of Welsh identity became the aim of new authorities. The responsibility for historic heritage maintenance was lied with the National Museum for Wales, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, and “Cadw”. The organizations themselves are also of interest for the study, because they were established in relation to the growth of Welsh ethnicism and attempts to protect Welsh culture in the XX century. The result of their activity is a large array of information, rich archeological collections, lists of historical, cultural and natural objects, located on the territory of Wales, and also their restoration and protection, authority consulting and studies. Herewith, each organization exercises activities on covering the maximum possible number of the region inhabitants for introduction of existing data with the use of digital technologies. Therefore, in Wales, the historic heritage holds an important place in politics, and it is distributed with the help of the specified organizations in order to reinforce Welsh national identity in the virtual space.
