On 30 January 1607 a huge wave, over 7 meters high, swept up the
River Severn, flooding the land on either side. The wall of water
reached as far in land as Bristol and Cardiff. It swept away
everything in its path, devastating communities and killing
thousands of people in what was Britain's greatest natural
disaster. Historian and geographer Mike Hall pieces together the
contemporary accounts and the surviving physical evidence to
present, for the first time, a comprehensive picture of what
actually happened on that fateful day and its consequences. He also
examines the possible causes of the disaster: was it just a storm
surge or was it, in fact, the only recorded instance of a tsunami
