back. There are also remains of a small

Romans left the area around 410.

around 875, with Cambridge growing
rapidly from that time.
In 1068, William of Normandy took
control of the area, building a castle on
Castle Hill, and the historic Round
Church was built soon after.

with the first town charters being
granted in the 1100s, and the University
of Cambridge founded in 1209.
