Whilst Cambridge possibly existed in Roman times, and grew into a Norman market town (the name of the town mutated from Grentabrige or Cantebrigge (Grantbridge) its University has made it was it is today.
The University was formed 1209 when a group of Oxford scholars moved to the town to escape the violence prevalent in Oxford at the time. By 1231 Cambridge students were sufficient in numbers and apparently so unruly that Henry III issued a number of writs for the punishment of the disorderly. In 1318 the University got itself officially baptised with a Papal Bull from Pope John XXII. The first college, Pembroke, appeared in 1347, followed the following year by Gonville Hall, and Corpus Christi four years later.
Now with 31 colleges, the University has gradually grown in size, stature and influence on the world.
