The resource supports delivery of the Curriculum Cymreig by focusing on Cardiff and the Taff Valley.

The game offers pupils information about events, people, buildings and transport in the area, throughout the 1800s, which can be used to stimulate discussion of the topic for further investigation as part of a historical enquiry.

The factsheets signpost pupils to places where they can research each area of interest further.

The Lady Bute education activity at Castell Coch is designed to introduce pupils to the Bute family, everyday life for rich Victorians and change in the nineteenth century, as evidenced at Castell Coch. 

Complementary sessions looking at life for the middle classes and the poor are available at Glamorgan Archives and the Cardiff Story Museum.
