Human Settlement In The Greater Manchester Area
The area encompassing the Greater Manchester area has been the site of human habitation since at least the Iron Age. Some of the land was occupied by Celtic tribes and there is also evidence of Roman occupation in the shape of the Castleshaw fort, among others in the region. During the Middle Ages, the region became known for its cloth production and in particular types of cloth known as flannel and fustian. Later the Industrial Revolution lead to an expansion of the textile industry, focusing mainly on cotton. The cotton goods were produced for the domestic and global markets and this lead to a huge population explosion at the end of the nineteenth and the start of the twentieth centuries. Manchester became the largest market place for cotton goods and became knowns as the ‘first and greatest industrial city in the world’.
Flowers And Animals In The Region
Greater Manchester has a green belt which has permitted the flourishing of a wide variety of wildlife. The woods, moors and reed beds support important species of animal and plant. For example, heather may be found in the Saddleworth Morre and the Rochdale Canal is home to a rare and endangered plant known as Floating Water Plantain. Common Cottongrass is found in the high moorland and is considered the County Flower of Greater Manchester. Rare birds to be found in the South Pennines include the Curlew and the Merlin.
