There is a newly published book about “The History and Archaeology of Cathedral Square Peterborough“.

It is written by Stephen Morris and brings together the investigation and monitoring work undertaken by Northamptonshire Archaeology (subsequently MOLA) during the improvements made to Peterborough city centre between 2009 and 2010.

The work traced the development of the area from Medieval “Marketstede” to modern day “Cathedral Square”. It revealed a succession of surfaces, discovered a previously unknown cemetery, and located the foundations of a range of buildings and features.

We have added an article to the website which summarises findings and provides information about the source publications.
