The University of Cambridge was founded in 1209, probably as an offshoot of the young university in Oxford. Evans's history of intellectual life on the banks of the Cam ranges across the subsequent eight centuries, from John Duns Scotus in the 13th century to modern pioneers in genetic science, and examines the changing nature of the degree courses offered, as well as analysing debates over issues such as academic freedom and the admission of women.
