Working on the Perci Penfro project as an intern was a most delightful and interesting experience. It showed me the important role that place names have in the perseverance of Welsh history and in popularizing the further use of the Welsh language on daily basis. The connection between land and man strengthens when you know how to recognise your surroundings in their native tongue and the cultural implications of this are huge.

I want to express my gratitude to the Commission for this opportunity of gaining work experience in a Welsh-speaking environment and especially to the Place Names Officer – Dr. James January McCann for his supervision and further background information that he provided during my internship. I wish all the best to the team of the Commission in all their future projects.
