Seamer can claim to be the longest inhabited site in Britain, the possible remains of a 10,000 year old dwelling having been found in 2010 at the Star Carr excavations along with the remains of the first domesticated dog found anywhere.

In this new book, Sheila McGeown takes us from these early inhabitants through the Anglo-Saxon and Viking periods, the Middle Ages and the turmoil of the Civil War down to the era of growth and prosperity in the Victorian age to the present day with its fast-moving changes and challenges.

It is a book not only for the inhabitants of Seamer but for anyone interested in Yorkshire’s local history.

Sheila McGeown was born and grew up in South Yorkshire where she was educated at Rotherham High School and worked as a civil servant until starting a family. She pursued her life-long love of History by studying at Hull University where she obtained a B.A. in Local and Regional History, and an M.A. in Historical Research. Until 2012 she taught and lectured in Family and Local History for the W.E.A. and Hull University Adult Eduction Department.
