The Making of Barnsley (New Edition)
The Making of Barnsley (New Edition) Category: Local History (Non-Fiction) Format: Paperback Author: Brian Elliott Publisher: Wharncliffe Books Publication Date: Saturday 30th October 2004 ISBN: 9781903425909 Pages: 192

When published in 1988, The Making of Barnsley was the first published history of the town since Victorian times, focusing on the ‘pre-industrial’ period, but with an eye on the present day. In this edition, new sources provide insight into forgotten subjects such as medical care, trades and early industries. It also shows us that crime and punishment were an integral part of social history.
