The city of Wolverhampton is located in the West Midlands of England and is named after Wulfrun, who founded the town in 985. Other historic records refer to the town as Heantune and Hamtun, and by 1381 the town appeared in certain records as Wolveren Hampton. By the 19th century Wolverhampton was a wealthy and affluent town due to the huge industry formed around the abundance of coal and iron in the area. In the year 2000 Wolverhampton was granted city status.
