The industrial remains of the late nineteenth century metal mine of Ystrad Einion, have been brought back to life in the latest animation by the Royal Commission. Ystrad Einion lead-silver, zinc and copper mine is one of the most northerly mines in Ceredigion, situated in the heart of Cwm Einion (Artists Valley). The animation with voiceover, reconstructing the history and process of this mine was funded through Ceredigion County Council's PLWM project and was researched by the Royal Commission and the Welsh Mines Preservation Trust. It was produced by ay-pe Ltd.
