What is the

The Cymuned (Community) map aims to provide supporting materials to support learners aged 7-16 and practitioners to learn and teach about the history of a range of minority communities in Wales. The map reflects Wales past and present, our diverse cultural heritage, and the values and traditions of our communities.

There are 40 entries in the initial map which take us on a journey through Wales and the rich history of its diverse communities.  The map presents the stories of inspiring role models and explores some of the most significant events in the history of Wales’s minority communities. From the exciting story of brave Jewish spies in Aberdyfi, to the inspiring story of a talented Nepalese Welsh footballer in Brecon.  We celebrate the stories of anti-racism campaigners, scientists, athletes, poets, musicians and more. Our hope is that the Cymuned map will encourage learning and be the beginning of an exciting journey for the learner.

The Cymuned map studies the history and diverse stories of Wales, which are an important part of fulfilling the purposes of the Curriculum for Wales. This resource will grow over the five years from the date of publication, with three locations of interest added on the map during each school term. By 2028 there will be a total of 85 locations of interest on the map. Make sure you come back and visit the Cymuned map as it develops and evolves.
