Course Overview

This 5-week course will introduce to the history of Lancashire. Despite being England’s youngest county, Lancashire has played an important role in the political and economic life of the country.
This course will look at Lancashire’s beginnings in the early medieval period and its growth from a wild, sparsely populated backwater to the most important industrial region of the 19th century and the Workshop of the World.
