This presentation will explore the daily challenges faced by Oxford's residents during the Civil War, including the persistent friction between the town and gown factions. The term "town v gown" symbolizes the historical tension between local townspeople and the academic community of the university during the First Civil War. This rivalry, rooted in social, economic, and cultural differences, offers insight into loyalty, collaboration, and conflict resolution amid this tumultuous era. Additionally, it will examine the impact of the Great Fire of 1644 and the Great Plague, both consequences of overcrowding and Royalist Military law, that shaped Oxford's experience in the Civil War era.
