tradition often seems insane to me and I was fascinated
to discover that Oxford University students comply and attend
their exams in these rediculous outfits.
no doubt when they've finished the go for a punt
and then cycle home
where, if you can put to one side your discomfort about our disgraceful colonial past,
you can spend hours shining your wind up torch (supplied)
into cabinets (yes I said cabinets )
full of fascinating artifacts from all over the world.
From writing tools, to baby baskets
and surgical instuments to textiles
a great place to visit for anyone interested in
.....more to follow including images from the gruesome 'treatment of dead enemies' section which fascinated me but might scare the pants off others......
