VI. C. Read the text Oxford and Cambridge(Easy English № 49)

Oxford and Cambridge are not only among the oldest cities in Great Britain, but are also home to the oldest and most prominent universities both in the United Kingdom and the world. The first written record of Oxford appeared in “The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle” in 912 and by the 11th century it was a well-fortified city.

Cambridge developed more slowly, but when William the Conqueror built a castle there in 1068, it marked an important step in the town’s development. Today the remains of medieval buildings, city walls and castles, only add to the special atmosphere in both cities.

Oxford University is the oldest university in Britain and was founded in the early 12th century, when scholars and their pupils congregated in Oxford to study. In 1209 the townspeople expelled the students because one of them murdered a townswoman. Some of the students secured support with the King and the Pope and remained in Oxford, while others left and went to Cambridge. That is how Cambridge University was founded.

Expelled students were welcomed by several monasteries and slowly the new academic centre started attracting new students, including some from abroad. One major characteristic of both Oxford and Cambridge Universities is that they are divided into colleges, which are separate, self-administered entities, and only loosely controlled by the university.
