The group visits the Ashmolean Museum each month to be guided around a separate part of the collection. Each meeting, a gallery lecturer will give a talk and show us the section being studied.

The meetings will be on the first Thursday of the month but with no meeting in August. Meetings start with the group gathering at 11:00am or if there are sufficient numbers for two groups then we meet at 10.45 and 12noon in the Greek & Roman Sculpture Gallery immediately to the left of the main entrance to the museum.  There will be a fee of £8 per person attending, payable in advance.
