“‘Made in Sheffield’” still carries a huge amount of credibility, both nationally and abroad. These pages chronicle the history of the men and women who originally gave these three simple words their standing in the world today.” This volume is the firstin a new series of studies in historical archaeology. Bringing together the work of archaeologists, historians and others, this publication examines the Sheffield cutlery industry – from Chaucer’s time and before, right up to the present day.
