The Aspects series takes readers on a voyage of nostalgic discovery through their town, city or area. This best selling series has now arrived, for the first time, in Calderdale. John Billingsley has gathered a range of articles covering the whole history of the Pennine borough from pre-history to the present day. We start the journey through Calderdale with The Early Prehistory of Calderdale. Then we are exposed to the transition of modern technology and the impact it has, in From Quill to Computer: Public Libraries in Halifax. Calderdale can also have a claim to some well know authors in John Hartley: 'The Yorkshire Burns' and 'Archaeology of the Mouth' Ted Hughes and his birthplace. All these and much more help to shape Calderdale's distinctive and vibrant identity, in Aspects of Calderdale.
