North Yorkshire is a historic county of England, centred on the county town of York. The region was first occupied after the retreat of the ice age around 8000 BC. During the first millennium AD it was occupied by Romans, Angles and Vikings. Many Yorkshire dialect words and aspects of pronunciation derive from old Norse due to the Viking influence in this region. The name, Yorkshire, first appeared in writing in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 1065. It was originally composed of three sections called Thrydings, subsequently referred to as Ridings.
Much of the history of West Yorkshire is tied to the city of Leeds and the other major centers in the county. The area was home to several Celtic settlements, and later was occupied by the Romans, who founded some of this region’s cities and towns.
After the fall of the Roman Empire, the region was part of a small kingdom in what is today central England, and eventually was absorbed under the English crown. During the Anglo-Saxon, and later Norman era the city was first mention in the Domesday Book, which was written in the early 11th century. The region of West Yorkshire was primary one of agriculture throughout the Middle Ages.
It was also a spot of some volatility, which is evident in the numerous castles that were built by English nobles to keep the region in check. The castle of Sandal was built in the 13th century and was used by the Dukes of York as an agent of the King. During the Wars of the Roses, Sandal was one of Richard of York’s strongholds in the region, and this is where he massed his forces prior to the disastrous Battle of Wakefield.
