Cambridge is a beautiful city with one of the oldest universities in Britain.

The University, which is nearly 800 years old, consists of autonomous colleges dotted about the town. The colleges are under the general umbrella of an administrative and examining body. Its members are elected by the colleges themselves.

For many years the University was also in charge of the town’s administration, and this led to riots: fights between the townsfolk and the university’s students. The differences between the two has the name “town and gown” - gown was what the students wear.

Nowadays things are much more peaceful!
