Welcome to the website for the book Villagers: 750 Years of Life in an English Village, which tells the story of the Cambridgeshire village of Gamlingay through the villagers who have lived there during the last seven centuries and more.
The book brings to life the ordinary people of the past and will appeal to anyone who is interested in English social history, even if they have never heard of Gamlingay. Go back a couple of hundred years and most of us are descended from villagers like these.
