Dyfed Archaeological Trust LimitedDyfed Archaeological Trust Limited is one of the four Welsh Archaeological Trusts. The Trust is both a Limited Company and a Registered Charity. The Trust is established to advance the education of the public in archaeology. It is committed to working to help protect, record and interpret all aspects of the historic environment.

Following a visit by Menna Bell (Community Archaeologist) to Llanelli to talk with the Llanelli Community Heritage committee, we were invited to their offices in Llandeilo.

The Dyfed Archaeological Trust is talking to local heritage and historical organisations, to see how they can assist and benefit from the these groups' local knowledge. Dyfed Archaeological Trust will help the groups with training in such things as practical archaeology, research and access to the trust's extensive database.

On Saturday 18 February 2012, six members of LCH visited Dyfed Archaeological Trust for a morning of instruction on the workings of the trust and a look around the archives. Discussions also took place as to how we can work with them, enhance our skills and perhaps provide our research for inclusion in their database.

Many thanks to both Louise Austin (Principal Archaeologist Heritage Management) and Menna Bell (Community Archaeologist) for an informative and enjoyable morning.

After some refreshment at the Cawdor Hotel we took the oppertunity to take a look at the Llandeilo Church.
