Swansea has long been a busy industrial port and has always had an edgy history. Explore the hidden stories from its long and dangerous past, with tales of rebellion, shipwreck and murder. From Romans to the Red Lady, Viking raids to English attacks, deadly diseases, slums, cholera and Nazi bombs, you'll never see the city in the same way again.
Why were all those men trapped in the hold when the Caesar hit the rocks at Pwlldu? What happened when Hitler came to Swansea? Find out who you can turn to for help when you have just dismembered a body and want to put it in your van. All this and more awaits you within.
