The scale of its industrialisation, the ferocious ravaging of the natural landscape, the transformation of thousands of agricultural labourers into industrial workers, its juxtaposition of wealth and poverty, chapels and beer houses, workers’ riots and middle class reformism made Merthyr unique. But it foreshadowed the Wales to come.
Joe England will sign copies of the book and discuss the themes and writing of his book with Professor Dai Smith and with the audience.
Admission is free. Tea and coffee will be available.
