History 

Oxfordshire History

Oxfordshire/

Oxfordshire was formed as a county in the early years of the 10th century.

Historically the area has always had some importance due to the agricultural land in the centre of the county. Ignored by the Romans, it was not until the formation of a settlement at Oxford in the eighth century that the area grew in importance. Alfred the Great was born across the Thames in Wantage in Berkshire.

The University of Oxford was founded in 1096, though its collegiate structure did not develop until later. It grew in importance during the Middle Ages and early modern period.

The area was part of the Cotswolds wool trade from the 13th century, generating much wealth, particularly in the western area, in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Morris Motors was founded in Oxford in 1912, bringing heavy industry to an otherwise agricultural county.

The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, the main army unit in the area, was based at the Barracks on Bullingdon Green, Cowley.
