Did you know that Oxford University is the oldest university in the English-speaking world?
Its exact date of foundation is unknown, but teaching existed at Oxford in some form in 1096 and developed rapidly from 1167, when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. However, not all of Oxford's college's are quite this old....Linacre College for example, is a mere babe in comparison and is 50 years young this year.
Congratulations on your 5oth Anniversary Linacre!
Linacre College, Oxford from New College Recreation Ground.
Set within the beautiful surrounds of The University Parks and playing fields, Linacre is
located just five minutes walk from the city centre on the corner of St Cross and South Parks Roads.
