The Romans in mid Wales

The Romans in mid Wales was prepared as ajoint venture between CPAT and the Powysland Museum in Welshpool, and it formed the core of a static exhibition about the Roman period at the museum during 2007. The display comprises a set of 9 A1 boards and a virtual reality model of the Roman landscape around the Caersws basin, together with an accompanying booklet about the model. The content of the boards and booklet are accessible by following the link below . . . .

How the West was Won

As a follow up to a number of projects that CPAT has undertaken in the Walton Basin on the central Powys border with England, we have prepared an exhibition entitled How the West was Won which looks at the spectacular assortment of vast Neolithic monuments that are to found in the area - including, at 34 hectares, the largest wooden palisaded enclosure of that date yet to be found in Britain. The exhibtion was first used at the Royal Welsh Show in 2012. It comprises a set of 3 A1 boards / 6 A2 boards and a downloadable booklet, all of which are accessible by following the link below . . . .
