    7 Quirky Facts About Oxford

    1. That’s Capital!
      King Charles I made Oxford his new capital city in January 1642. Charles had been virtually run out of London by Parliamentarians who were seeking to reduce the power of the King. Fearing his opponents Charles decamped and made Oxford his new capital, setting up the royal mint there and basing his army in the city. As a result, Oxfordshire became a focal point of battles throughout the Civil War that lasted for 9 years.
    2. Mein Camp
      Hitler also had designs on Oxford and intended to make it his capital city once he won WWII. He was so keen on the plan that he ordered his planes to avoid bombing Oxford, which spared many of the city’s historic buildings.
    3. Writers Wot Right Stuf
      Oxford has produced some of the nation’s brightest minds. It has also produced more authors per mile than anywhere else in the world. Some of the city’s famous scribes include; Lewis Carroll, JRR Tolkien, Mark Haddon, Dorothy L Sayers, Oscar Wilde, TS Eliot, Joanna Trollop, William Boyd, Harper Lee, Richard Dawkins, CS Lewis, Philip Pullman and Dr Suess to name but a few.
    4. Town vs Gown
      In 1209 a number of riots broke out between students and locals. They became known as the ‘Town vs Gown Riots’ and there were injuries and even deaths on both sides. Fearing for their lives, one group of students fled the town and set up a new university in a place called Cambridge. Yep, Cambridge University owes its existence to Oxford. Not something that Oxford dons hold over their Cambridge counterparts ever. But before the students of Oxford get too carried away, we shouldn’t forget the name Oxford means ‘cattle crossing’, so no need to get ‘snobbish’!
    5. Oxford Snobs
      Through its many writers and student slang, Oxford has gifted the world many words (all recorded in the Oxford English Dictionary of course). One such word to come from the uni is ‘snob’. It comes from the Latin “sine nobilitate”, meaning “without nobility”. Therefore, a snob is someone who looks down their nose at others without having noble bearing themselves.
    6. Sport & Music
      The city hasn’t just produced writers, academics, prime ministers, broadcasters, journalists and comedians, it has also helped over 150 Olympic medal winners and been the birthplace of some huge bands such as Radiohead, Foals, Supergrass.
    7. Weird Uni Facts
      The first university college opened its doors in 1096, it was the first English-speaking university in the world. For the first 700 years, the only subject you could study there was religion. Female students weren’t permitted at all until 1878 and had to wait until 1920 before they were allowed to earn degrees, one college still didn’t accept female students until as recently as 1974.
