Cambridgeshire (or Cambs.) borders Lincolnshire to the north, Norfolk to the northeast, Suffolk to the east, Essex and Hertfordshire to the south, and Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire to the west. Modern Cambridgeshire was formed from the historic counties of Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire, together with the Isle of Ely and the Soke of Peterborough; it contains most of the region known as Silicon Fen. The county town is Cambridge.
Cambridgeshire is noted as the site of some of the earliest known Neolithic permanent settlements in the United Kingdom. A great quantity of archaeological finds from the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age were made in Isleham, East Cambridgeshire. Holme Fen is notable for being the UK's lowest physical point at 2.75 m (9 ft) below sea level.
Cambridgeshire contains seven Parliamentary constituencies: Cambridge, Huntingdon, North East Cambridgeshire, North West Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, South Cambridgeshire, and South East Cambridgeshire.
The city of Cambridge is a university town and the administrative centre of the county of Cambridgeshire. It lies about 50 miles north-east of London. Cambridge is best known as the home of the University of Cambridge, the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and regarded as one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world. The university includes the renowned Cavendish Laboratory, King's College Chapel, and the Cambridge University Library.
According to the 2001 UK census, the city's population was 108,863 (including 22,153 students), and the population of the urban area (including parts of South Cambridgeshire district) is estimated to be 130,000. Cambridge is surrounded by many smaller towns and villages.
Close to Cambridge is the so-called Silicon Fen area of high-technology (electronics, computing and biotechnology) companies. Many of these have connections with the University of Cambridge, and the area is now regarded as one of the most important technology centres in Europe. Much of rural Cambridgeshire remains agricultural.
As well as those born in the county there are many notable people from, or associated with, Cambridgeshire who moved there, particularly due to the presence of Cambridge University.
