The ' Cardiff Time Line' page is the section of the site where you can find out how Cardiff developed from a small settlement over 2,000 years ago, to the bustling Capital City and County that it is today.
I hope this page proves useful to anyone who wants to find out more about the history of Cardiff.
Individual references have been added where possible, but with missing or conflicting sources of information gathered over a decade ago, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to provide a reference for every entry.
As v1 of Cardiffians is put to bed, and v2 continues to mature, these references will continue to build.
Most of the information on this page has been obtained from historical documents I own, or have borrowed from Cardiff Central Library.
Many websites have been essential in providing the information, or confirming it too.

The history of Cardiff—a City and County Borough and the capital of Wales—spans at least 6,000 years.
The area around Cardiff has been inhabited by modern humans since the Neolithic Period.
Four Neolithic burial chambers stand within a radius of 10 mi (16 km) of Cardiff City Centre, with the St Lythans burial chamber the nearest, at about 4 mi (6.4 km) to the west.
Bronze Age tumuli are at the summit of Garth Hill (The Garth; Welsh: ), within the county's northern boundary, and four Iron Age hillfort and enclosure sites have been identified within the City and County of Cardiff boundary, including Caerau Hillfort, an enclosed area of 5.1 ha (13 acres).
