Interesting Facts about Oxford

The University Museum of Natural History has the most complete specimens of the dodo, a flightless bird that went extinct in the 17th century. The museum has mummified parts of this unusual bird.

Oxford was largely spared during the bombings of World War II, making it an especially fun city for lovers of old architecture.  The reason is that Hitler was intending to use Oxford as his capital if he conquered England which is one of the reasons it was not bombed.
