9 January - 8 April. An exhibition at the Pitt Rivers Museum highlights how albums containing everyday photographs of colonial times can provide a glimpse into a colonial past.

Now recognised as important historical documents, many of the photographs from that period were taken by colonial administrations, missionaries, engineers, medical workers or teachers.

The albums on show in Oxford contain the photographs of Percy Coriat, Ernest Emley and William Freer Hill.

The photos were taken between 1905 and 1935 in Sudan, Kenya and Nigeria.
