The Little History of Yorkshire, Hardback Book

The Little History of Yorkshire Hardback



There is nothing 'little' about the history of England's largest county, Yorkshire!

However, this small volume condenses a rich history into a collection of stories and facts that will make you marvel at the events this county has witnessed, from Mesolithic roots to Roman heritage, from medieval splendour to the industrial revolution and beyond.

Discover the development of the woolen industry in Leeds, the coal, textile and steel industries in Sheffield and Rotherham, and the rise of spa towns at Harrogate and Scarborough.

Take a journey through the historic - and heroic! - struggles and celebrations of past Yorkshire people, or jump into the era of your choice to discover the who, what and why of our county's history.
