The Carmarthenshire Antiquarian Society was founded in 1905 as a 'field club' and remains so to this day with its active programme of monthly meetings comprising field days in the summer and a winter programme of lectures, plus an annual whole day programme of keynote talks, each year on a different theme. Collections made by members led to the formation of a museum which then became the core of the County Museum at Abergwili. Its prestigious annual publication - Transactions (to 1939) and the Carmarthenshire Antiquary (1941 to present) - comes free to members and its more than 100 issues provide an invaluable resource for anyone researching history in the County. The Society also funds occasional publications; research projects; an annual prize for schools; and is an active supporter of all aspects of history and archaeology in the County.
