 Sheffield has been recently described as formerly regarded as one of the least historic cities in the United Kingdom, famed for many things, chiefly steel making and the production of cutlery. It’s also known as the biggest village in England largely because of the friendliness of its inhabitants. But Sheffield’s past goes far back before the Industrial Revolution to its medieval origins as a small settlement by the Rivers Don and Sheaf (from which it gets its name).
