The Museums That Make Us: The Ashmolean Museum, Oxford
Series 1, episode 18
After visiting National Museums in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, Neil chooses Ashmolean Museum, in Oxford, to represent an English identity, and finds a message of inclusion. Among its items is an object from Northern Syria. Acquired by Oxford's own TE Lawrence, this small model clay wagon, possibly a child's toy, provides an opportunity to demonstrate how the museum can provide for a huge breadth of local people from all over the world
