Experience new art and discover how heritage science reveals, preserves and shapes the past, present and future of sculpture.
Outside the Museum:

Hands-on experiments will let you explore how environmental conditions impact stone and sculpture, including the three generations of stone heads in front of the Museum and the Sheldonian Theatre.
Heads and Tales:
Hear stories about the history and mysteries of the stone heads told by archivist Sue Squibb and Bodleian guide Madeleine Katkov.
Looking to the future:
Join artist Kay Sentance to imagine heads for the future and think about what’s within our heads.
