World Archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum: a characterization


Image: carved stone human figure known as Titahanga-o-te-Henua, or 'the Boundary of the Land’, recovered from the islet of Motu Nui, Easter Island (PRM Accession Number 1916.36.319)

My next book - an edited volume titled World Archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum: a characterization is published in March 2013. The book is the product of a research programme that I ran at the Pitt Rivers Museum between 2009 and 2011. It offers an overview - what we have called a 'characterization' - of the whole of the archaeological collections of the museum. The Table of Contents is below. 

You can read and download the whole book for free from my academia.edu page.

The physical book can be ordered from Archaeopress here
