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.
