The History Press is delighted to announce the release of ‘The Little History of Yorkshire’ by Ingrid Barton out now.

In a beautifully designed book and based on The History Press’ most popular ‘Little History of’ series, this new edition is an unstuffy history book that can be dipped into or read from cover to cover and is a brilliant tour through Yorkshire’s eventful history. Full of little-known information for locals, it’s also full of facts and very accessible to non-locals alike!

From its Roman heritage through to the Industrial Revolution and beyond, discover the development of the woollen industry in and around 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 Yorkshire’s historic struggles and celebrations or jump in to the era of your choice to discover the who, what and why of our county’s history.
