The Carmarthenshire Antiquarian Society was
founded in 1905 and is one of the foremost County antiquarian
societies in Wales. From its inception the founding members
saw a need to record, publish and collect all things relating
to the history, antiquities and natural history of 'Carmarthenshire
in particular, and West Wales in general'. This philosophy
has been maintained throughout its history. It has pursued
part of its aim through scholarly publication through the Transactions (to
1939) and the Carmarthenshire Antiquary (1941 to present).
It started as a 'field club' and remains so to this day
with its active programme of Field Days, supplemented by a
winter programme of lectures.
