A brief history of SwanseaA brief history of Swansea

Swansea is an Island situated at River Tawe's mouth; the town was discovered by Normans during the twelfth century, and a fort was then constructed on top of a former Worcester palace site. This palace was then rebuilt with stone and is today known as Swansea castle. Swansea was occupied by many English people at the time. Throughout the medieval period, the borough was known for its leather and wool industries which expanded, and products were exported to the UK from the town. Other things Swansea was famous for producing included butter, cheese, and grain. The town held two fairs annually and had several markets that ran once a week and would last for a couple of days, attracting people from all over Wales.

During the 17th century, this miniature town population gradually increased, and more houses were built. Swansea's port became even busier as the industry in coal mining became familiarised however this was not the only industry that exceeded, as iron was extracted from mines as well. Swansea was well known for its metal industry during the 19th century, which enabled Welsh people to earn a livelihood. The Swansea Canal was then constructed, making it easier to carry heavy materials to and from the port. Many industries were tried and tested in the town; there was also shipbuilding; however, it was not a thriving industry.
