IMG_9630Here are photographs of the almost final product of our piece. A lot of research has gone into the maps and history of the development. We have two different trails on the board game; The Canal (in blue) and the Railroads(which will be in red). One end of the board is Merthyr and the other Cardiff, the idea of the game is to race your opponent to the other end. Throughout this journey to the other end you will be faced with different cards (in a similar way to a monopoly game) which contain information about the history of canals/railways but also give you instructions to your next move.

The whole concept of this piece of work is to convey the developments of the industrial revolution in Cardiff. We were focussing on the Hidden City (Historically) but have also included the Migration (through transport).
