Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum throws light on superstition in the Islamic world with a fine show of stunning amulets, illuminated astrological charts and intriguing fortune-telling devices. Theresa Thompson

Sparked by a chance find in a Brussels antique brocante, an American couple, Sam and Myrna Myers, built up a fine collection of rare and beautiful Eastern art, which is now on show in Montreal. Dalu Jones

Written in stone

Going on a search for mysterious rock art and ancient petroglyphs carved and pecked on boulders, scattered across the wild landscapes of the state of Utah, makes for a gratifying road trip. Carol Chamberland
