Latest Highlight from our Channels

“Dressed as a New Zealander”

This three-minute slideshow highlights the museum objects used as ‘props’ in a photograph by Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) taken in Oxford in 1866. Dodgson borrowed the objects from the Ashmolean Museum in Broad Street, before later returning them; they are now in the Pitt Rivers Museum’s collections.
