Description:
The culture of Yorkshire has developed over the county's history, taking influences from the cultures of those who came to control the region, including the Celts (Brigantes and Parisii), Romans, Angles, Vikings, Normans and more.

The Yorkshire dialect and accent is distinctive, although use of dialect words is receding.
