Cardiff has an incredibly rich history, from its foundation as a Roman fort through its Norman occupation to its establishment as a county town following the Act of Union with England. Owing to its strategic position on the River Taff, Cardiff became the world's greatest coal port in the nineteenth century, and in the post-industrial era, the city has found a new identity as the capital of Wales. Join author Dic Mortimer as he explores the history of one of Britain's most fascinating and vibrant cities, exploring the people and events that made the Welsh capital what it is today.
