  7. 7. History fades into fable; fact becomes clouded with doubt and controversy; the inscription molders from the tablet:  the statue falls from the pedestal.  Columns, arches, pyramids, what are they but heaps of sand; and their epitaphs, but characters written in the dust?  Washington Irving, The Sketch Book: Westminster Abbey
  8. 8. Graduated from Oxford with a degree in History Al Murray (Comedy Genius)

  16. 16. Graduated from Oxford with a degree in History Alan Bennett Writer
  17. 17. History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.  Winston Churchill
  18. 18. Graduated from Oxford with a degree in Modern History Michael Palin Monty Python star and Broadcaster
