The city of Oxford has a long and prosperous history. First mentioned by name in 912 as one of the 'burghs' or fortified places that King Alfred and his descendants had constructed to protect Wessex from the Vikings, Oxford has played a significant part in many of the great historical events that have shaped the country. In the twelfth century the University of Oxford began to take shape, establishing the city as a centre of learning, which remains today. Join the author on a nostalgic trip around historic Oxford, showcasing some of the finest buildings and streets in this quintessentially English university city. Arranged geographically, starting in Carfax, the reader journeys through the streets of Oxford to the rivers Cherwell and Thames. City of Oxford Through Time is sure to reawaken nostalgic memories for many.
