“David Hey was one of the most prolific and influential English local historians of the past half century, and this collection of essays is a worthy tribute from his friends and colleagues, with ten essays spanning the centuries from the thirteenth to the twentieth and embracing that range of disciplines that feed into good local family and community history.”
About the book
David Hey (1938–2016) was one of the leading local and regional historians of our age and the author of a number of highly regarded books on the practice of local history. His work on surnames was pioneering and he was amongst the first to identify the potential of DNA in historical studies.
In this collection of essays in David’s memory, friends and colleagues celebrate his commitment to the landscape, economy and society of south Yorkshire — especially Sheffield — and Derbyshire, which together make up ‘Hey country’, the area in which he grew up and to which he returned to work.
