Sheffield steel has been known across the globe for a century. But was it a Sheffield invention? And, what has connected Sheffield to other steel cities across the globe? Join Dr Julia Moses, Lecturer in Modern History at The University of Sheffield, as she examines the simultaneous experience of discovery, the common plight of steel workers and the widespread admiration for stainless steel across the globe.
