Bronze Age finds in a bog are to be used to showcase historical habitats in Carmarthenshire.

The county council has helped to secure £43,000 to promote peatland sites near Brechfa and Llanfynydd.

The Heritage Lottery Fund grant will allow Dyfed Archaeological Trust to work with schools exploring prehistoric round barrows on Mynydd Bach common.

The public will be able to support further investigations on the sites.

Other partners include Swansea University and the National Botanic Gardens of Wales.
