Cambridgeshire: The Victoria History of Cambridgeshire


The Victoria History of Cambridgeshire

The History of Cambridgeshire is part of the national series familiarly known as the Victoria County History. Founded in 1899 and dedicated to Queen Victoria, the V.C.H. is a major work of reference on local history, based on original research and achieveing a high standard of scholarship. It is designed to provide a comprehensive and authorative history of each county; it is made up partly of 'general' chapters, on subjects that it has been thought best to deal with on a county-wide footing, and partly 'topographical' chapters, which give a detailed account of each city, town and parish in the county.
