The three volumes of The Cambridge Urban History of Britain represent the culmination of a tremendous upsurge of research in British urban history over the last thirty years. Mobilising the combined expertise of nearly ninety historians, geographers and archaeologists from Britain, Continental Europe and North America, these volumes trace the complex and diverse evolution of British towns from the earliest Anglo-Saxon settlements to the mid-twentieth century. Taken together they form a comprehensive and uniquely authoritative account of the development of the first modern urban nation.The Cambridge Urban History of Britain has been developed with the active support of the Centre for Urban History at the University of Leicester.
