The University of Oxford (informally Oxford University or simply Oxford) is a collegiate research university located in Oxford, England. It has no known date of foundation, but there is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's second-oldest university in continuous operation. It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge. The two "ancient universities" are frequently jointly referred to as "Oxbridge".

  • The Laboratory with Leaves (part 13): Walls
    Are walls about as boring as it gets? Not according to self-professed ‘wall-aholic’ Heather Viles.

    At the end of the eighteenth century, the courts of Europe thrilled to the demonstrations of a violin bow being dragged across the side of a metal plate. It was not the sound, but the shapes that were appearing in the sand scattered on the metal plate that so excited audiences. Mathematician Ernst Chladni discovered extraordinary symmetrical patterns hidden inside the strange noise of the vibrat...
