Image of MANC-70: Manchester Est. 1853 Limited Edition T-Shirt - Grey


This T-Shirt states that Manchester was only established in 1853, surely not?

The recorded history of Manchester began with the civilian settlement associated with the Roman fort of Mamucium or Mancunium, which was established in about 79 AD.

Throughout the Middle Ages Manchester remained a manorial township but began to expand "at an astonishing rate" around the turn of the 19th century.

Manchester's unplanned urbanisation was brought on by a boom in textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution, and resulted in it becoming the world's first industrialised city.

Manchester achieved city status in 1853, the first new British city for three hundred years.
