Peterborough 😻 Did you know? The original name of the town was Medeshamstede. The town's name changed to Burgh from the late tenth century, possibly after Abbot Kenulf had built a defensive wall around the abbey, and eventually developed into the form Peterborough; the town does not appear to have been a borough until the 12th century. (Yes we copied and pasted this from Wikipedia - don’t do that in your uni assignments 😂) #peterborough #angliaruskin #arugrad #aruproud #angliaruskinuniversity
