A project that brings old Swansea to life in the most up to date way is underway at the city museum.

The display that uses CGI techniques to allow viewers to take a virtual 'walk through' of Swansea as it was in medieval times.

it includes a re enactment of the hanging of William Cragh who was executed after being convicted of murdering thirteen men!

He became even more infamous for seemingly coming back to life the day after the hanging!

Other displays show a hospital on the site where the Cross Keys pub is now situated.

This was apparently  for the benefit of sick and infirm clergymen.

The exhibition will also highlight all the old ghost stories that are associated with the city's colourful history.
