Ceredigion

By tradition this county was named after Ceredig, one of the seven sons of Cunedda who lived during the Dark Ages (A.D.400-800). For many years it was known as Cardiganshire.

Agriculture has always been the most important industry in Ceredigion. The others were seafaring, lead mining and tourism.
