16 Jan - 10 March. This exhibition examines the life of Paul Jacobsthal, a leading Celtic archaeologist who was forced to flee his native Germany in 1936 due to his Jewish background and his study of the pan-European origins of Celtic art, which clashed with the nazi regime's nationalistic doctrines.

Jacobsthal settled in Oxford where he became a senior academic in the university, a post he held until his death in 1957.

His letters, on display in the exhibition, reveal that many of his former colleagues continued to correspond with him, in defiance of the nazi regime.

Visitors can discover about life as a refugee in Oxford in world war two, through archives, film, archives and family activities.
