The Pitt Rivers Museum is a renowned centre for research on material culture, art and photography.

With strong historical links to the teaching of anthropology and archaeology in the University of Oxford, the Museum today seeks to bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines to explore critical themes that connect people all over the world to its rich collections and the histories they hold.
