Peterborough, originally called, “Peter's Borough” grew up around a Saxon monastery which came into being about 650 AD on the site which was later occupied by Peterborough cathedral. Destroyed by the Danes, rebuilt, burnt, the cathedral as we know it was begun in the 12th century and added to in the 13th and at the turn of the 14th, was sacked by Cromwell, was refurnished in the 19th century and given the modern figures of the Apostles on the west front in 1949. This history can be traced from the Saxon foundations, through the Monk's Stone in the choir-aisle (which commemorates those who were massacred by the Danes); the effigies of 12th century Benedictine abbots; the first burial-place of Mary Queen of Scots before her removal to proximity with Queen Elizabeth in Westminster Abbey; and the grave of Catherine of Aragon, showing traces of desecration by the Puritans; down to the figures added in modern times. The history that can be pursued through the cathedral and its precincts is the history of the city itself, which in modern days has become an industrial town with an accent on railways and brickfields. Peterborough museum in Priestgate has exhibits ranging from relics of the Roman occupation to the craftsmanship of French prisoners-of- war during Napoleon's campaigns.
