Culham is a small village by the river Thames near Abingdon in Oxfordshire, with more than 12 centuries of recorded history. Though small, it is known round the world through the nearby research centre which bears its name. Culham Laboratory is home to two major nuclear fusion experiments, JET and MAST. When JET was built, the European Commission set up the European School in Culham to provide an international education for the children of Euratom scientists who would come to work at JET. The European Commission withdrew from managing the school, and it is now a multicultural multilingual UK state school called the Europa School. Another claim to fame is the old ticket office at Culham Station, a listed building designed by the famous Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
