We spent an hour or so walking through the College - a useful reminder of our heritage and the future for some.

I spent two happy years as an American student at Trinity. Since I left, I have learned much more about the history of Trinity. Its origins are in Durham, the home of George Washington's ancestors and where GW's coat of arms - mullets (stars) and bars (stripes) - originated (one of the earliest versions is in Trinity's Old Library). The Dining Room includes portraits of alums Pitt the Elder and Lord North. Pitt as Prime Minister championed the expulsion of the French from the colonies, and made possible their independence. North made independence inevitable. The 1694 Chapel, visible from the front gate, is a true gem, the first interest of Peter the Great when he visited Oxford in 1698.
