Special Collections on Bradford, the West Riding and the Yorkshire Dales
The development of the University of Bradford cannot be seen in isolation from the region in which it is based, its historic industry and radical traditions. The University grew out of the need for technical education in Bradford and much of its teaching and research has a local focus e.g. archaeological research in the Yorkshire Dales, conflict resolution with local communities.
Bradford’s history and that of the University is intertwined with the experience of the other West Riding cities and the Yorkshire Dales.
