Mapping Medieval Swansea Gareth Dean and Keith Lilley In mapping the landscape of medieval Swansea the project has created a detailed map showing the town as it was in around 1300, shortly before the time of Cragh’s hanging. The means by which this map of medieval Swansea was made draws upon a long history of using maps to reveal the histories of places. It is a technique that involves using historic maps, along with written and archaeological sources, as a basis to reconstruct a town’s medieval layout and urban features. Here we describe what this process of map-making involved, partly by way of explanation of how the project’s digital mapping was derived, but also to offer others the scope of repeating these approaches to undertake similar work elsewhere, for other historic towns and cities. The City Witness map showing Swansea circa 1300 is a wholly new view of the medieval town.
