|William the Conqueror|
William the Conqueror visited Cambridge, or Grantabridge as it was known in 1068 and ordered one of three castles across the East of England to be built there in the aftermath of his northern campaign to capture York.
It was decided because Cambridge was on one of the old Roman routes from London to York and could prove to be strategically significant and at the risk of rebellion.
