The area around Birmingham, England shows human activity from the Stone Age, Bronze Age settlements, Roman forts and roads, and the Anglo-Saxon era.

Matthew Boulton, a Birmingham manufacturer of metal products, became a partner to James Watt and promoted the steam engine which assured the city's reputation. Today Birmingham is ranked as a beta world city.
