Gan S.R. Hughes, 2000.

Abertawe oedd y rhanbarth diwydiannol cyntaf yng Nghymru ac fe enillodd y teitl ‘Copperopolis’ oherwydd ei hamlygrwydd fel canolfan ryngwladol mwyndoddi copr ar ddiwedd y ddeunawfed ganrif a thrwy gydol y bedwaredd ganrif ar bymtheg. Yn y gyfrol hon caiff llawer o’r dirwedd ddiwydiannol a chymdeithasol arloesol honno ei mapio, a cheir disgrifiad o’i harwyddoc√Ęd yn y cyd-destun cenedlaethol a rhyngwladol.

Copperopolis: Landscapes of the Early Industrial Period in Swansea

By S.R. Hughes, 2000.

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 it 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 is described.
