Bristol was the first provincial borough to be upgraded to county status in 1373. From its earliest days its prosperity was linked to its port, especially with the importation of wine and tobacco and its involvement with the slave trade. Explorers sailed from Bristol on epic voyages and discovered new lands. For many years Bristol was the second or third largest English city. In recent times its economy has been built on the aerospace industry and the construction of Concorde, the world’s first supersonic aircraft.

From the Avon Gorge’s formation, Iron Age settlers and Norman castle construction, to civil war, riots and bus boycotts, The Little History of Bristol is guaranteed to enthrall both residents and visitors alike.
