We take great pride in announcing our newest content partner, the Asmolean! Founded in 1683, the Ashmolean is the University of Oxford‘s museum of art and archaeology. Their world famous collections range from Egyptian mummies to contemporary art, telling human stories across cultures and across time.

From Henry VIII‘s hunting gloves to Guy Fawkes‘ Lantern, from Oliver Cromwell‘s death mask to magnificent studies by Raphael, the content of the Ashmolean makes it deservedly one of the greatest academic institutions.
