The British Science Festival has been to Swansea four times. The first was in 1848, when the then British Association for the Advancement of Science visited the Royal Institution of South Wales. What was Swansea like? What drew the meeting to Swansea in 1848? And what was the meeting like? Who were the scientists visiting the town? What was the science they were reporting? With 800+ participants and Faraday, Joule, Kelvin, de la Beche, among them, the meeting is an interesting guide to the state of science in the Year of Revolutions, 1848.
