Summary This book explores the hidden stories of Swansea's long and dangerous past-stories of death, shipwreck, and murder. From Romans to the Red Lady, Viking raids to English attacks, deadly diseases, factory riots, slums, cholera, and Nazi bombs, you'll never see the city in the same way again. Did Thomas Nash really throw his daughter from the pier? Why were all those men trapped in the hold when the Caesar hit the rocks at Pwlldu? Compiled by Swansea's own Geoff Brookes, read it if you dare!
