From the weird and wonderful to the macabre and frightening, Nick Brunger's tales of Carmarthen's past reveal the spine-chilling truths about this ancient town and the surrounding county. The man who was hung twice, a bishop burnt at the stake and a traitorous nobleman. Their dark stories provide grim reading. Among Creepy Carmarthen's rogues and villains, you'll find Thomas Richards, who murdered his sister-in-law for her wedding ring, and Rhys ap Thomas, suspected of delivering the death blow to King Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth, thereby changing the course of British history. You'll learn the nickname of the local police force, why coracle men hauled corpses as well as fish from the river Towy, and the link between Mary Jane Kelly, the last victim of Jack the Ripper, and Carmarthen.
