    In 655 AD a monastery was founded on the site called MEADSWELL and later MEADHAMSTEDE, it was destroyed in 870 AD by the Vikings.
    From 966 to 970 AD the monastery re-formed and a township starts to grow, protected by a ditch and embankment 'BURGH' wall.
    By 1070 the town is known as "BURGH" or BURGH ST. PETER or PETERBOROUGH.
    In 1116 it was almost completely destroyed by a fire, along with a large chunk of the town, after which the present Cathedral was started and taking 116 years to complete was consecrated in 1238AD.
