This book explores the early history of the Pitt Rivers Museum and its collections. Thousands of people collected objects for the Museum between its foundation in 1884 and 1945, and they, and the objects they collected, provide a series of insights into the early history of archaeology and anthropology, as well as a snapshot of the British empire.
