I had to go here for a meeting so nipped into the museum and saw the Iron Age mirror described in Sharon Woodward’s film ‘ More than Just a Mirror’. Sharon works for Film Oxford and also works with ‘Lights Up’ in West Oxfordshire , so we know each other quite well. I had look round at descriptions of Ritual Sites and their significance in Oxfordshire.
I looked at Magoria, Neil C Smith’s digital phasmagoric work using archive and contemporary photographs of Oxfordshire people. and then went to look around the new Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum, which was altogether a different experience.
I spent some useful time looking at weapons, past and present and the displays about communication. The images I took were take on my phone as ‘aides memoire’ and so poor quality. But the research was useful for thinking about conflict past and present and the references within my Research Paper.
