Artstor and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University are collaborating to make available 154,000 images in the Digital Library from the museum’s permanent collection. These images will include superb coverage of Pre-Columbian, African, Native North American, and Oceanic archaeological objects and ethnographic artifacts. The images will be selected from the Peabody Museum’s permanent collection, which consists of millions of objects spanning the breadth of human culture throughout the Americas, Africa, Oceania, Asia, and Europe.

Through an ongoing partnership, Artstor and the Peabody Museum are also digitizing and distributing approximately 55,000 archival photographs of Mayan excavations from the Carnegie Institution of Washington archive, which is housed at the museum. To date, approximately 37,000 photographs documenting archaeological excavations throughout Central America have already been released in the Digital Library.
