Hidden Presence Exhibition

Thursday 1st till Saturday 31st October 2015

Hidden Presence will explore the extraordinary life of Nathaniel Wells, an 18th-19th century nobleman of mixed heritage, son of a wealthy Cardiff merchant and plantation owner and an enslaved woman.

The project will explore the history of his country seat, Piercefield House, Chepstow; the relationship between the sea ports of South Wales and the West Indies; and it will look at a range of issues linked to cultural heritage, identity, citizenship and what it means to be Welsh today.
