The brief history of Lancashire starts, as all good histories should, with the beginning - the moment when the detritus of a dying star, spinning through the depths of the Milky Way, began to cool and coalesce, and rain - typically for Lancashire - began to fall as the moisture in the new atmosphere began to condense. A planet was formed, and history as we know it had begun.
Racing through the history of Lancashire, with Neolithic residents, Romans, Civil War victories and Victorians - and, of course, a few cotton mills along the way - this delightful book will tell you everything you ought to know about the dramatic and fascinating history of the county - and a few things you never thought you would.
