Hull, officially Kingston upon Hull, is a city and unitary authority area in the ceremonial county of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The town of Hull was founded late in the 12th century. The monks of Meaux Abbey needed a port where the wool from their estates could be exported. They chose a place at the junction of the rivers Hull and Humber to build a quay.
