Marlborough Chalk

Friday 10th March 2023

In three new articles in our Marlborough Chalk collection, Theo W-B has researched the history of C1 from its time as the home of the Seymour family through to its role in the life of the College from 1843. Aoife G has taken a colourful look at how chalk is used in Hindu culture and Oscar P explains the slightly obscure but fascinating correlation between chalk and military operations.

These excellent articles add interesting new angles to the growing collection of work.

You can read all the entertaining and impressive articles published to date on our Marlborough Chalk webpage and more will follow shortly.

‘Marlborough Chalk’ refers both to the land below and around us – the wonderful chalk downland which has sustained such rich and varied civilisations for thousands of years – as well as the tradition of pedagogy represented by the College (‘chalk’ once being pretty common in classrooms!). The articles in this collection, which is spearheaded by the academic scholars, are about anything and everything connected to these topics.
