History in Dundee is not a visible thing as it is in other cities such as Edinburgh or York. There are not many places in Dundee today where it is possible to stand and take in a view that would be instantly recognisable to a visitor from another century - decades of wanton destruction in the name of progress have seen to that. "Undiscovered Dundee" is an anthology of this lost civic inheritance. It is the story of forgotten disasters and buried heritage, of harmless eccentrics and brutal murderers, of heroes and villains, of strange events and everyday landmarks. It tells of the Dundonians who time has erased, those who stayed and made a difference to their city and those who left and made an impact on a larger stage. Sometimes the story ventures far from Dundee and sometimes it tells of what happened when the world, in the form of everyone from writers to royalty, from presidents to pop stars, came to the Scottish city. Yet it is always Dundee itself that binds the story together - a city that, despite appearances, is alive with history.
