Oxford was inhabited since at least the Ancient Roman times. There was evidence of a sacrifice to the God Fluvius in the Oxford Canal, and the Fell Press was said to be built on the ruins of a temple to Mithras.
20th and 21st centuries
Oxford was the home of Lyra Silvertongue. She was taken there by Lord Asriel and raised there until she left with Marisa Coulter. Lyra returned to Oxford and studied at St Sophia's School and later St Sophia's College.
