Artifacts prove Welsh city's importance in Roman society

This Christmas, locals and visitors to Aberystwyth, Wales will be treated to a display of 4th century Roman artifacts at the Ceredigion Museum. The pieces were most likely owned by a wealthy landowner.

The artifacts were discovered in 2006 during the excavation of a remarkable Roman villa at Abermagwr, and include pottery, coins, and roof tiles.

"By putting the finds on display this Christmas, we hope we can explain why Abermagwr is now so important to the history of Roman Wales," said Dr Toby Driver of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales.
