Beautiful Lincoln

Beautiful Lincoln

The jewel in Oxford's crown, Lincoln College displays an architectural splendour unmatched by any other College in the University.

Tombs of the Old Rectors

Tombs of the Old Rectors

Constructed in the late Sixteenth Century, the Pyramids of Lincoln were constructed to hold the earthly remains of the three greatest ever College Heads of House;  Rector Snap (1541-1547), Rector Crackle (1547-1582) and Rector Pop (1582-Present). Obviously, the Pyramid of Pop is currently unoccupied.

Soaring above Oxford, the Lincoln Campanile is now the College Library. On the anniversary of the founding of Lincoln (St Baldrick's Day, 1427) one Fresher, chosen by lot, is wrapped in the College Flag and thrown from the tower to propitiate the College household deities.
