The St. Scholastica’s Day Riot

There is always some conflict between a university and the community where it resides. Sometime that conflict is just a little more intense. The St. Scholastica's Day riot of 1355 was one of the most extreme instances of "town vs. gown" in history. It is history that deserves to be remembered.
