New collection agreement: Irving Rouse Archive of Caribbean Archaeology in the Peabody Museum of Natural History (Yale University)
The Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University is partnering with ARTstor to share more than 4,000 images from the Irving Rouse Archive of Caribbean Archaeology in the Digital Library. The photographs document excavations undertaken on sites in Antigua, Cuba, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Trinidad, and other Caribbean islands, as well as in Venezuela and Florida, by Irving Rouse, longtime Curator of Anthropology at the Peabody Museum, along with Charles J. MacCurdy, Professor of Anthropology at Yale, colleagues, and students.
The images from the Irving Rouse Archive of Caribbean Archaeology will join a selection of approximately 1,000 highlights from the Museum’s natural history collections, 420 images of African art, such as textiles, costumes, basket and bead work, weapons, tools, and ritual objects, and approximately 6,000 images from the museum’s other archival collections, a majority of which consist of archaeological and ethnographic objects.
