    Abstract:
    For centuries, continental Europeans have come to Wales for numerous reasons. During the Romantic period some came seeking a rural idyll, whilst others in the Victorian era travelled as industrial spies, and during times of war many refugees escaped to Wales to find shelter from persecution. Not only have continental Europeans left their traces among the people of Wales settling here but they have also written extensively about their experiences in diaries, letters, books and magazines or novels. This project report showcases some of the recent findings from the AHRC-funded project ‘European Travellers to Wales, 1750–2010’ jointly undertaken by Bangor University, the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies at Aberystwyth, and Swansea University.
