One of Corpus’ s longest-serving Fellows, Rackham became an expert on the college’s history .

One of Corpus’ s longest-serving Fellows, Rackham became an expert on the college’s history, traditions and architecture. As Keeper of the College Plate, he authored 'Treasures of Silver at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge' (2002), a detailed descriptive catalogue. He was elected Master in 2007, serving in that office for one year. Although college duties claimed a large proportion of his time, the work of observing the landscape, and writing about his findings, remained a continuing and central preoccupation throughout his life.

Oliver Rackham, OBE, FBA (17 October 1939 – 12 February 2015) was an academic at the University of Cambridge who studied the ecology, management and development of the British countryside, especially trees, woodlands and wood pasture. His books included Ancient Woodland (1980) and The History of the Countryside (1986). Rackham was born in Bungay and attended King Edward VI School, and then Norwich City College.

This is an account of the unique assemblage of silver and silver-mounted artefacts belonging to Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, some of them dating back to the College's foundation 650 years ago. They include extraordinary objects such as a thirteenth-century drinking vessel made of the horn of an extinct animal, as well as the everyday tools and utensils of past centuries. Although some of them are well known to art historians, they have never been published in detail. The objects are especially significant for being documented in the College's archives from the fourteenth century onwards. The book investigates the objects' construction, how the College came by them, their original meaning and context, how they came to survive the depredations of the Civil War, what happened to those that do not survive, evidence of wear and repair, and what they were (and still are) used for.
