Swansea is officially known as the City and County of Swansea, which
is a coastal city and county in Wales. It is Wales' second largest
city. Swansea lies within the historic county boundaries of
Glamorgan. Situated on the sandy South West Wales coast, the county
area includes the Gower Peninsula and the Lliw uplands. The City and
County of Swansea had a population of 239,000 in 2011,[ making it
the second mostpopulous local authority area in Wales after Cardiff.
During its 19th-century industrial heyday, Swansea was a key centre
of the copper industry, earning the nickname 'Copperopolis'.
Archaeological finds are mostly confined to the Gower Peninsula, and
include items from the Stone Age, Bronze Age, and Iron Age. The
Romans reached the area, as did the Vikings.
Swansea is thought to have developed as a Viking trading post. Its
name may be derived from Sveinn's island (Old Norse: Sveinsey) – the
reference to an island may refer to a bank at the mouth of the river
Tawe, or an area of raised ground in marshes.
