Abstract:

This is the history of Oxford as you have never encountered it before! The first historical record of Oxford laments that the city has been burnt to the ground by Vikings. Its religious houses were founded by a woman who blinded her would-be attacker. Its students were povery-stricken desperados in perpetual armed conflict with the townsmen. One of its principle colleges, meanwhile, doubled as a slaughterhouse - and its richest streets and University edifices backed on to some of the most pestilential slums in England. With a mangled skeleton in every cupboard, this is the real story of Oxford.
