World Archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum

‘World Archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum: a characterization’ introduces the range, history and significance of the archaeological collections of the Pitt Rivers Museum, and sets out priorities for future research into the collection. Through 29 newly-commissioned essays written by a specialist team, the volume explores more than 136,000 artefacts from 145 countries, from the Stone Age to the modern period, and from England to Easter Island.

Pioneering a new approach in museum studies – which the project calls “characterization” – this landmark volume is an essential reference work for archaeologists around the world, and a unique introduction to the archaeological collections of one of the world’s most famous museums
