It is this tribe who are thought to have constructed several hill forts in and around Sheffield.

Following the departure of the Romans, the Sheffield area may have been the southern part of the Brittonic kingdom of Elmet, with the rivers Sheaf and Don forming part of the boundary between this kingdom and the kingdom of Mercia.

61% of Sheffield's entire area is green space, and a third of the city lies within the Peak District national park.

In the 19th century, Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production.

The resulting poor conditions culminated in a cholera epidemic that killed 402 people in 1832.

The influx of people also led to demand for better water supplies, and a number of new reservoirs were constructed on the outskirts of the town.

The earliest evidence of human occupation in the Sheffield area was found at Creswell Crags to the east of the city.

In the Iron Age the area became the southernmost territory of the Pennine tribe called the Brigantes.

In Anglo-Saxon times, the Sheffield area straddled the border between the kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria.
