Special Event: Oxford Open Doors at the Ashmolean
Saturday 8 September, 10 – 2pm
As part of the 2012 Oxford Open Doors celebration, the Ashmolean is working with Oxford Instruments.
Bring along your jewellery, coins and small metallic objects to be analysed on Oxford Instruments’ XRF analyzer. The results of such an analysis can be helpful to validate authenticity and to estimate the value of antiques or jewellery. It will also identify the composition of the material and measure the thickness of the metal elements.
Free drop-in session, Lower Ground Floor
