Cambridgeshire comprises much of historic Fenland, which was the site of some of the first settlements on the island of Britain, back in the Bronze Age. The town of Whittlesey is called Britain`s Pompeii, as it is home to perhaps the best-preserved Bronze Age structures still standing in the entire country. The cathedrals of Cambridgeshire are terrifically ornate and large, and are tourist attractions in and of themselves. The most notable cathedrals, all of which were former monasteries, can be found in Peterborough, in Cambridgeshire`s northwest, and in Fenland (called `the Fens` by locals) and the Isle of Ely in the east. The county town, Cambridge, can be found in the south, and is home to one of the world`s most prestigious English-language universities. Today the area is known for its technological innovation, and `Silicon Fen`, a cluster of Internet-related businesses and corporations, bases their UK operations here.
The city of Cambridge is a unique community, a blend of cultural and social diversity, intellectual vitality and technological innovation. Cambridge is best known for the University of Cambridge, one of the most prestigious universities in the English-speaking world. One of the most impressive buildings in Cambridge, King`s College Chapel, begun in 1446 by King Henry VI.
