Visitors to this site are also advised that some records may contain names, images, and recordings of deceased individuals and that some records document human remains.

We welcome feedback. The web database is not a complete record of the Museum's anthropological holdings and documentation for a collection item will vary due to when and how it was collected as well as how recently it was accessed.
