For those who have always assumed that Birmingham started life in the Industrial Revolution this book will be a revelation. The physical remains left by its past inhabitants reveal a story that starts in the Old Stone Age and continues, through later prehistoric, Roman and medieval times, right up to the Cold War of the twentieth century.
