Pitt Rivers Museum Prints

The Pitt Rivers Museum is the University of Oxford's museum of anthropology and world archaeology. Established in 1884, it is one of Europe's most important collections of ethnography, including one of the most significant collections of ethnographic photography. This website has been designed to give more people access to, and enjoyment of, images from the Museum's rich collections. More images will be added in due course, but we also welcome suggestions on what collections you would like to be made available.

Other images from the Museum's collections may be available to print, but not currently displayed on the site; requests for these prints should be e-mailed to the Museum: Pitt Rivers Museum Prints Enquiry.

Copyright in all prints and posters is held by the Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford. The Thesiger Collection was accepted in lieu of inheritance tax by HM Government and allocated to the Pitt Rivers Museum in 2004.
