  The Clarendon Laboratory
by KennetRose

Home of the university physics department, where knowledge of elementary particles would be found if it were to be found at all in Oxford.

Actually Lyra is directed, not to this elegant building, but to one of the more modern and functional blocks lurking behind it, where she finds the Dark Matter Research Unit (R.I.P., Director: Lazarus) and its Director, not Lazarus but the former nun Dr Mary Malone. Once inside she confounds Dr Malone and causes mayhem with the experimental equipment. In here too, a few days later, Dr Malone is made an offer by the dastardly Sir Charles Latrom that she can't possibly accept, loses her job and sets off for universes new via the anomaly on the Ring Road.

By the time she gets back she'll be lucky to get bar work!
