This small new exhibit explores how early Harvard scholars influenced the development of anthropology and archaeology in the Pacific region. Produced in collaboration with over 30 other museums around the world, Harvard’s contributing exhibit features historical images and objects from the Peabody collections, including intricately carved Fijian clubs, models of distinctive Pacific outriggers and a striking example of Samoan bark cloth (siapo). Together they weave a compelling narrative about the ideas, people and networks pivotal to both early understandings and ongoing studies of Oceania.
