The city of Sheffield is also a metropolitan borough in South Yorkshire and is home to more than half a million people. Archaeological finds reveal that the site has been occupied for thousands of years but the history of the modern city can be traced back to the early Middle Ages when it was formed by the merger of several settlements. However, Sheffield rose to prominence only in the 19th century; thanks to the steel industry, it gained a worldwide fame. After the decline of the steel industry in the 1970s and 80s, the city turned its attention to other economic activities and today, it is one of the fastest growing urban economies with an annual growth of 5%.
