Llyfr sy'n edrych ar y modd yr oedd carchardai Cymreig yn anfodlon gyda'r drefn newydd. Bwrir golwg fanwl ar ddigwyddiadau yng ngharchar Caerfyrddin yn y cyfnod 1840-1877, sy'n cynnig asesiad o'r berthynas a fodolai rhwng carchar lleol, y staff a'r carcharorion, a'r gymuned.

A book which examines the resistance in the Welsh prison system to national trends that were favouring prison as a penal measure, rather than as a place of capital and corporal measures. It examines in detail the operation of Carmarthen Gaol in the period c.1840-1877, offering an account of the relationship between a local gaol, its staff and its prisoners, and its location.
