The History of Cambridgeshire is part of the national series familiarly known as the Victoria County History. Founded in 1899 and dedicated to Queen Victoria, the V.C.H. is a major work of reference on local history, based on original research and achieveing a high standard of scholarship. It is designed to provide a comprehensive and authorative history of each county; it is made up partly of 'general' chapters, on subjects that it has been thought best to deal with on a county-wide footing, and partly 'topographical' chapters, which give a detailed account of each city, town and parish in the county.
