Cambridge, home of Cambridge University, has been an important settlement and market for more than 900 years as a result of the river and the Roman road which crossed it near the foot of the present-day Castle Street. It is north of London. This was a major trading route between Eastern and Central England. The Romans and the Saxons established and extended the early settlement and William the Conqueror established his castle on the mound which still survives today. The Saxon tower of St. Bene't's Church in Bene't Street is the City's oldest surviving building, dating from the early 11th century.
