On 14 October 1913 about 950 men were working deep beneath Senghenydd, near Caerffili, when there was a huge explosion in the Universal Colliery. After months of rescue work it was clear that 439 miners had died. This book tells of Senghenydd before the 1913 disaster, including the explosion in 1901 that killed eighty-one miners.
