Southampton has one of the darkest and most dreadful histories on record. The city has been assaulted by the Romans, Vikings, Normans and the King's men, razed to the ground by the French and bombed almost to extinction by the Nazis. Inside the walls, violence, terror and destruction raged, from the horrors of God's House Tower gaol to the dolorous deaths of the Southampton Plot ringleaders, who were tried on the spot occupied by the Red Lion today and executed outside Bargate. A city with a most martial of histories, Southampton has seen millions of soldiers flood out from the port towards the battlefields of Europe and beyond - many never to return. With bombs, blood and battles, famous disasters such as the Titanic and the awful destruction of the Blitz, read it if you dare!
