Gonville and Caius (Cambridge)

Gonville and Caius is one of the colleges which together make up the world famous Cambridge University.

It is situated in Trinity Street.

Caius is pronounced "Keys", and the name of the college is usually shortened to just "Keys".

The college is one of the earliest, being founded in the 14th century by Gonville, a priest from Norfolk to train other priests.

In 1557 John Keys refounded the college. He was doctor to both Edward VI and Mary I, and Latinised his surname to Caius.

There is some remarkable architecture in the college and its grounds.
