The archaeology on the ground, the patterns of fields and woods, villages, towns and the roads that link them, the boundaries of districts and properties, the names for these places too, all are clues, alongside exceptionally rich archives, to 10,000 years of Britain's history from the Ice Age to the Romans, the Middle Ages and the present day. Our course shows how to recognise the main evidence, concluding with an analytic walk among Cambridge's streets — and an untouristy view of its picturesque river. This method of history can work anywhere in the world.
