Scunthorpe is the third largest settlement in Lincolnshire and is the administrative centre of the North Lincolnshire unitary authority. People have been living in the area for hundreds of years and making use of the local natural resource of ironstone. The town really began to thrive from the mid-nineteenth century thanks to the Industrial Revolution – between 1851 and 1901 the population had grown from 1,245 to 11,167. However, Scunthorpe has far more to it than its industrial heritage. It actually has a, perhaps unexpected, past that dates right back to the Stone Age. In Secret Scunthorpe local author Morgan Broadbent delves into this long history, revealing little-known stories and shedding light on aspects that deserve a greater amount of historical appreciation.
