Exhibitions and Displays

Take a look at some of our older displays and exhibitions from the archive.

Romans in Mid Wales

As a joint venture with the Powysland Museum in Welshpool, the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust has prepared an exhibition entitled The Romans in Mid Wales. The exhibition draws on Cadw funded project work by CPAT on Roman military and civilian sites in the Clwyd-Powys region. It comprises a series of bilingual display panels, detailing aspects of Roman life in mid Wales, and a virtual reality model of Roman and Iron Age sites in and around Caersws in northern Powys, including the Roman fort at Caersws and the Iron Age hillfort at Cefn Carnedd.

How the West Was Won

As a follow up to a number of projects undertaken in the Walton Basin on the central Powys border with England, CPAT prepared an exhibition entitled How the West was Won which looked 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 exhibition 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 downloadable below.
