images having to do with archaeology and ethnology is
the basis of many of our virtual exhibits. If you have
photographs you think the museum might be interested in,

The exhibits are created by students
as part of the museum studies courses offered in the Department

conservation and web exhibit design. Some of their work
may be viewed on this site.
Archaeological collections arising
from excavations and other research by faculty, staff and
students are housed in the museum.
