This brings the current available total to more than 52,000 of a projected 154,000 images from the Museum’s collection.
The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University is the oldest museum devoted to anthropology in the United States and holds a permanent collection of millions of objects documenting the history of human culture throughout the Americas, Africa, Oceania, Asia, and Europe. The museum’s archaeological holdings comprise the majority of the permanent collection, with particular strengths in North, Central, and South America. Though smaller in number, the ethnographic collections have established the museum’s reputation as a preeminent repository of anthropological objects relating to Native American, Pre-Columbian, African, Oceanic, and Asian cultural groups. There are also extensive archival collections, which document the museum’s collections and history, as well as the development anthropology as an academic discipline. Selections from the museum’s permanent collection of archaeological objects, ethnographic artifacts, and archival materials will be added to the Artstor Digital Library for scholarly and educational uses.
