Cambridgeshire (Map) (2) - Framed Picture - 12" x 16"
Cambridgeshire, formerly known as the County of Cambridge, is an East Anglian county.
Cambridgeshire is noted as the site of Flag Fen, one of the earliest-known Neolithic permanent settlements in the United Kingdom.
Cambridgeshire was recorded in the Domesday Book as "Grantbridgeshire" (related to the river Granta).
Due to the county's flat terrain and proximity to the continent, during the Second World War the military built many airfields here for RAF Bomber Command, RAF Fighter Command, and the allied USAAF. In recognition of this collaboration, the Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial is located in Madingley. It is the only WWII burial ground in England for American servicemen who died during that event.
