Celebrations take place at the world's oldest museum

It's the world's oldest public museum and today celebrations are taking place across Oxford to mark the 400th anniversary of the birth of the founder of the famous Ashmolean Museum.

To celebrate the life of Elias Ashmole, the museum will hold a year long programme of events and activities to share stories of Oxford during the civil war.

Mary Stanley visited the museum today.

Mary spoke to Museum Director Dr Xa Sturgis, Art Curator An Van Camp and King Charles I Mark Wallis.
