“Well-presented history of a troubled city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Very interesting, even for someone like me not especially into history. Starting from early settlement, via the origins of conflict with Catholic and Protestant monarchs, right through to paramilitary uniforms and weapons. Great to see these latter consigned to the museum where they belong!
