About the Tours of the Ashmolean:

Who will it suit?  

Everyone will enjoy the tour, but the lowest age is probably around 16.  Most groups are mixed in age and background, including some who are unsure about the Bible, and the tour will be pitched accordingly.  You have to be physically able to walk between galleries, although there are lifts if stairs are a difficulty. 


Artefacts to include the Gilgamesh epic, a Dead Sea scroll jar, Vespasian

gold coin and the Alfred Jewel.



We spend an hour on the Old Testament, and after a coffee break

spend the second hour on the New Testament and Church History to the

present day. 


Suggested donation of £5


"I liked the way we got an overview from creation to Oxford and to the ends of the earth... I just loved everything about the tour." 

Teacher, Botley

"Your presentation was reinforced that Christians do believe the truth"                                                               Legal executive, High Wycombe

"I think the highlight was the way you added a Christian perspective to the objects - in particular pointing out the profound differences between the Gilgamesh epics and the Bible's creation narratives."                                                                                                                              Physicist, Wantage

"It gave me a lot to think about, particularly regarding the history of the early church."                                                               Retired couple, Headington
