Brief History Of Cambridge:
Cambridge is most famous for its historic university. However, Cambridge is far older than the university, dating back to pre-Roman times.
This picture shows the site of the original settlement north of the river, on Castle Hill.
The Normans built a castle on Castle Hill in 1068.
Another old building is the School of Pythagoras in St John’s college, the oldest University building in Cambridge still in active use.
Henry VIII removed control of the university colleges from the religious bodies which had previously controlled them. There was a lot building at this time, including most of the splendid gatehouses (see left), and Kings College Chapel was finished (see left).
Oliver Cromwell was educated at Sidney Sussex College, and was elected Member of Parliament for Cambridge in 1640.
In 1614, Cambridge needed a new water supply. Thomas Hobson built a causeway bringing water from springs at Nine Wells near Shelford outside Cambridge into the city centre. Thomas Hobson hired out horses, but hirers had to take the horse closest to the door. This led to the expression "Hobson's Choice" meaning "No choice"!
William Harvey (1578–1657) discovered the circulation of the blood. He studied at Gonville & Caius College.
Isaac Newton (1643-1727) made fundamental discoveries about gravity and light, and invented calculus. He was at Trinity College.
Charles Darwin was at Christ’s College. His book "The Origin of the Species" described how different animal species could evolve by natural selection.
In late Victorian times, there were several colleges founded, including the first women's colleges, although degrees were not awarded to women until 1948.
Cambridge's famous scientists at include:
William Harvey, Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.
Ernest Rutherford split the atom in 1903.
Crick and Watson discovered the structure of DNA in 1953.
Stephen Hawking wrote Brief History of Time in 1988.
There have been many famous writers connected with Cambridge as well.
In 1845 the railway reached Cambridge, and the Barnwell Enclosure Act of 1806 allowed development of the town to the south and east. Cambridge became a city in 1951.
