Why Cambridge Military History?

The history of Cambridgeshire stretches from the Stone Age hunter gatherers, through the Roman colonization, the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons, Normans, and Vikings, to the development of England from feudal aristocracy to constitutional monarchy and on into the two World Wars and the Cold War.  It is a rich and varied history: RAF aerodromes and Tudor castles, memorials to the Great War and parish churches that stretch back to the 12th Century.  Join me on an adventure, exploring the local and fascinating history of this English Shire, steeped in military history, waiting to be explored.
