Secret Neath Summary

Secret Neath by Robert King

The south Wales town of Neath has existed since Roman times, when a fort was built here at the crossing point of the River Neath. It was a market town until the arrival of the Industrial Revolution and new manufacturing industries of iron, steel and tinplate in the eighteenth century. Industrial development continued throughout the twentieth century with the construction of BP's petroleum refinery at Llandarcy. Local author and historian Robert King delves into the town's hidden past in this unique approach to its history, blending dark and grisly tales with amusing anecdotes, ancient myths with little-known facts, and seeking out secrets that even most local people don't know.
