Description
The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge holds world-class collections of art and artifacts from many parts of Oceania, Africa, Asia and the Americas. These ethnographic objects include spectacular masks, canoes, drums, and sculptures, some collected during the voyages of Captain Cook to the Pacific, others assembled by Cambridge fieldworkers from the late 19th century onwards. In this introduction to the museum, illustrated with photographic images on virtually every page, curator Mark Elliott presents archaeological discoveries ranging from the very earliest hominid tools, excavated by Louis Leakey at Olduvai Gorge in eastern Africa, to Roman and Anglo-Saxon finds from various parts of Britain.
