South Yorkshire through the ages

Although South Yorkshire wasn’t an officially recognised region until 1974, the area’s history stretches right back to Roman times and beyond. There’s even evidence of prehistoric Mesolithic civilisation in Sheffield, dating all the way back to around 8,000 BC, while other historical sites include Conisbrough Castle, Doncaster Mansion House, Roche Abbey and Wentworth Castle and Gardens.

The biggest place in South Yorkshire is Sheffield, a city which dates back to the 9th century at a time when it was just a small hamlet with a growing Viking population. Over the centuries, South Yorkshire became a prominent region for mining and the manufacturing of steel, especially in and near to Sheffield where the surrounding hills and valleys provided a wealth of raw materials including iron ore and coal. During both the First and Second World Wars, Sheffield came under fire from the Germans, especially during the Sheffield Blitz in December 1940.

Today, Sheffield and South Yorkshire is a region known for its universities, museums, historic sites and beautiful countryside in the Pennines and the Peak District National Park. You can discover more about local history by visiting the region’s many museums including South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum, South Yorkshire Transport Museum and Weston Park Museum.
