RARE treasures dating back to the 13th century gave folk a ‘fascinating’ glimpse of their home city’s history.

A register of beerhouse licences for over 650 premises in Victorian Sheffield and documents recording anti-social behaviour from 1844 – when orange peel was thrown in the streets – were among artefacts included in the collection.

Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Coun Sylvia Dunkley, hosted the Sheffield Council event for over 150 history enthusiasts at the Town Hall.

She was ‘delighted’ at its success, adding: “The documents are truly fascinating. Those on display clearly demonstrate Sheffield has a rich history which we should all celebrate.”
