Abstract

Staffordshire is an English county with diverse and contrasting historic landscapes. The two major conurbations of the Black Country and the Potteries that now dominate the county co-exist with smaller towns and rural areas. The county’s industrial complexes, based on ceramics and metalware trades, sit alongside agricultural systems embracing both arable and grassland specialisms. These varied landscapes are both products and reflections of many histories. This atlas includes an array of specially-drawn, full-colour maps covering themes as varied as natural resources, administration, and various aspects of the socio-economic development of the county up to the mid-20th century. Each spread of maps is accompanied by an explanatory text, and the book concludes with a full bibliography. - (HC)
