Oxford break

I was in Oxford at the weekend to see an exhibition of treasures recently found in the royal burial tombs and the palace of Aegae, the ancient city of Macedon.

Artefacts in the exhibition included objects from the burial tomb of King Phillip II, father of Alexander the Great.

The exhibition was hosted in the very impressive Ashmolean Museum, the world’s first university museum.

Oxford itself is also a very impressive city with history seeping out of every stone.
