Synopsis

Cardiff has been on the frontline of Anglo-Welsh history, a place where the hammer blow of the past has periodically fallen hard. To really understand the character of a city you have to be aware of its scars: listen to the suffragettes, soldiers, slaves, martyrs, rebels, pirates and priests, and in the testimonies of each and every one you will find a number of prescient truths about Cardiff.



Nick Shepley has an eye for a telling anecdote and this, together with his lively and authoritative research, makes The Story of Cardiff appealing to anyone who is seeking to find out more about this fascinating city.
