Today's Object from the Collections
The Division of Anthropology is concerned with all aspects of human behavior, past, present, and with an eye to the future. Our work is biological, socio-cultural, archaeological and linguistic. Established in 1873, only four years after the Museum's founding, the Division has collected over 500,000 objects representing the peoples of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Pacific Islands and the Americas. Over 200,000 objects have been digitally imaged and are accessible online through the Collections Database.
