Students of E class carried out a project about Oxford and its historic University. The internet, school encyclopedias and Εnglish books were the sources of our information. After gathering all the information, students worked in groups to paint and make their posters.
Some useful information about Oxford:
Oxford was first settled in Saxon times, and was initially known as «Oxenaforda«, meaning «Ford of the Oxen»; fords were more common than bridges at that time. For over 800 years, it has been a home to royalty and scholars, and since the 9th century an established town, although people are known to have lived in the area for thousands of years.
«The city is known worldwide as a university town and home of the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the country and the English-speaking world. Buildings in Oxford demonstrate an example of every English architectural period since the arrival of the Saxons, including the iconic, mid-18th-century Radcliffe Camera.»
