Penn Museums: African Section

The Penn Museum's African collection is one of the largest of its kind in the United States. It features approximately 15,000 ethnographic and 5,000 archaeological objects. Most of the collection was gathered between 1891 and 1937. Readers may like to scout the excellent introduction to the collection before clicking View African Section Highlights, which links to 35 of the most interesting and diverse objects in the collection. Selecting individual photographs provides a closer look at each object, as well as a short explanation of the item in question. This is a wonderful peak into one of the great African collections in the world.
