This chapter examines Hensley Henson's experiences at Oxford University. It explains that during his stay at Oxford, Henson became a so-called troglodyte and he was generally isolated from everyday life. He spent most of his time reading books and polishing his Greek. In June 1884, Henson was placed in the first class of the honours society of Modern History and later joined the All Souls Fellowship. He has always regarded his election to the fellowship as the beginning of his Oxford life.
