'Grantabrycge' is an autobiographical study of place. The project takes the reader on a journey through the city of Cambridge, in an attempt to discover the origins of local history. Between A.D. 875-1066 the area was under Anglo-Danish rule. Grantabrycge was the name given to the area, which first acknowledged the modern city of Cambridge on the river Granta. The nordic and pagan roots of the modern city of Cambridge are no longer visible, in a place that has been moulded by nearly 800 years of colleges being founded through religious, and therefore, political ties within the United Kingdom. The University now dominates decisions regarding the development of the city.
