‘Oxfordshire in 50 Objects – the exhibition.’

Fifty fascinating objects, each telling a unique story, and brought together to celebrate Oxfordshire Museums Service’ half century. Chosen by community groups and members of the Service past and present, this exhibition showcases Oxfordshire’s rich heritage through the memories, experiences and interests of people from across the county. I curated the exhibition on behalf of the Service. The presentation is fully illustrated and lasts approximately 50 minutes.

The speaker is, Stephen Barker who is an independent Heritage Advisor with many years experience in the sector gained through working with a number of museums, universities, charities and other heritage organisations. He has managed and curated a significant number of historical projects. He is currently working with the History Faculty, University of Oxford and the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum. Stephen specialises in military history, particularly the First World War and British Civil Wars.

He is a Museum Accreditation Mentor for Pitstone Museum, a Trustee of the Buckinghamshire Military Museum Trust and a Board Member of the Fete Day Company. Stephen is also a member of the Group for Education in Museums, the South East Museums Federation and the Association of Independent Museums. He ran the Education Service at Banbury Museum for five years, was a trustee of the Battlefields Trust and published ‘Lancashire’s Forgotten Heroes’ – a history of the 8th East Lancs in the Great War.
