As part of the coursework and the fun planned for the program, there will be four all-day excursions to various locations around England.
Setting Description:
CMRS is located in St. Michael’s Hall within 150 yards of Carfax, the ancient crossroads of the city and center of Oxford’s academic, cultural and social life. Excavations opposite the Hall in Shoe Lane support a 10th-century date for the layout of the streets and lanes adjacent to the building. St. Michael’s Hall, built in the years between 1869 and 1875, was acquired in 1978. It is a tall rectangular building in red brick with large arched windows. From an arcade, the entrance leads upstairs to four floors on which are located the various activities of CMRS.
