The history of the universities of Oxford and Cambridge will be traced through their colleges. Both universities have buildings dating back 800 years. Their chapels display the history of stained glass, their gardens from cloister to riverside and ancient libraries inspired authors. Their alumni have contributed to the international development of modern science and the arts. There will be a visit to Oxford. Join us for this fascinating course.
