Swansea was the first industrial region in Wales and its
pre-eminence as the international centre of copper-smelting at the end of the
eighteenth century, and throughout the nineteenth century, earned the title
Copperopolis. In this volume much of this pioneering industrial and social
landscape is mapped and its significance in the national and international
context described.
