Carmarthen has been a centre of government, trade, industry and culture since Roman times. In the displays you can find pottery imported in Roman and medieval times, a collection of official weights and measures, and a Columbia printing press from when Carmarthen was the printing capital of Wales. The town's rich cultural and social life feature strongly in the displays too.
