About Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire is a county in the East Midlands of England. In 2015 it had a population of 723,000. The county is administered with the aid of Northamptonshire County Council and by using seven non-metropolitan district councils. It is called "The Rose of the Shires". Covering a place of 2,364 square kilometres, Northamptonshire is landlocked among 8 other counties: Warwickshire to the west, Leicestershire and Rutland to the north, Cambridgeshire to the east, Bedfordshire to the south-east, Buckinghamshire to the south, Oxfordshire to the south-west and Lincolnshire to the north-east – England's shortest administrative county boundary at 19 metres.

Northamptonshire is the southernmost county in the East Midlands location. Apart from the county town of Northampton, different main population centres consist of Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Rushden and Daventry. Northamptonshire's county flower is the cowslip. Much of Northamptonshire's geographical region seems to have remained quite intractable with reference to early human career, ensuing in an reputedly sparse population and comparatively few finds from the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods.

In approximately 500 BC the Iron Age turned into brought into the place with the aid of a continental humans inside the form of the Hallstatt subculture, and over the subsequent century a chain of hill-forts were built at Arbury Camp, Rainsborough camp, Borough Hill, Castle Dykes, Guilsborough, Irthlingborough, and maximum extensively of all, Hunsbury Hill. There are extra viable hill-forts at Arbury Hill and Thenford.
