A wide brief to include a variety of items from across the archaeological collection of the Ashmolean and some Roman objects and coins as well – including a hoard from Banbury. It will form the basis of a subsequent tour of the museum in June.

 

A Second meeting for the month!

The Reverend Canon Dr Richard Cooke is taking us on a guided tour of Coventry Cathedral. May is the 60th anniversary of the consecration of the New Cathedral and Arthur Wales, who was the originator of the “Cross of Nails” when he was vicar of St Mark’s in Coventry in 1940, became Rector of Warmington in 1946, a nice local link.
