Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology


Original AVH labels for objects from Fiji, now in MAA archives


The Museum’s archives are a rich resource that relates to MAA’s collections as well as to the history of the Museum itself and its role in the development of the disciplines of archaeology and anthropology. Among the archives are excavation notebooks and site plans from sites such as Jericho and Pat Carter’s excavations in Lesotho, the Fijian journals of Baron Anatole von Hugel, and the correspondence of museum staff and collectors.

Two million years of human history. One million artefacts. Countless astonishing stories.
