This thesis explores how Birmingham developed from a village of little note at the time of the Doomsday book to become the dominant settlement of the West Midlands conurbation. Central to Birmingham's development was its role in trade and industry and Birmingham's growth in this area is traced back to the mid-eighteenth century. Various different sectors of industry are examined; including the development of the jewellery industry. Part three of the thesis examines the South Staffordshire and Cannock Chase coalfields in terms of their historical development and impact on the wider region.
