Anthropology Collections Database
For information regarding the Collections please contact: jshansen@amnh.org, grigri@amnh.org
Over 250,000 ethnographic and archaeological objects representing the peoples of the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe and the Pacific Islands have been digitally imaged and are accessible online. Generous support for creating digital images of artifacts, archival documents, and photographs has been provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, New York State Council on the Arts, and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The Object Categories content and structure are based upon the Art & Architecture Thesaurus (AAT) produced by The Getty Research Institute, and follow its theoretical model for the organization of concepts (categories) as closely as possible.
