Pitt Rivers Museum

The Pitt Rivers Museum holds one of the finest collections of anthropology and archaeology in the world. Founded in 1884, its unique galleries are used as a focus for exemplary teaching and research and as an inspirational forum for the sharing of cultural knowledge amongst the widest possible public audience.

With more than 600,000 objects from a rich and diverse mixture of cultures, prehistoric and modern, from around the world, the museum is distinguished for its celebrated displays.  The displays are organised by type of object rather than geographical origin to illustrate the diversity of technological solutions to the same universal problems, demonstrating what unites us as humans, as much as what divides us by culture.
