Counting Heads - Victorian Swansea

Who were the Victorians of Swansea? How can we find out about the people who lived and worked in Swansea Town in the middle of the 19th century? Was Swansea a smart progressive Victorian seaside resort with the latest transport connections or a smoke-filled overcrowded industrial town with slums, docks, cholera and bad drains? Or something in between? 

Look at extracts from the 1851 Swansea Town census to help answer these questions. Watch fascinating re-enactment videos to bring Victorian Swansea to life for your pupils.
