The first true Northumbrian ball was Berniciaball, who unified with Deiraball to create the mighty kingdom of Northumbria, stretching from Hull to Edinburgh. Not all was peaceful, though, as Scotlandball frequently laid claim unto their territory.
In the 1970's and 80's, Northumberlandball became known for their miner's strikes as coal mines shut down around them; the economy is now mostly tourism.
