Anthropology Photographic Archive - The University Of Auckland



The Anthropology Photographic Archive database contains images from the Department of Anthropology Photographic Archive, The University of Auckland.

The images record staff research in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands in the field of archaeology and social anthropology from 1950 to date. At present approximately 50,000 images have been digitized and uploaded, ranging from social anthropology in Papua New Guinea and Tokelau, to archaeology in Western Samoa, Tonga and New Zealand.

The Anthropology Photograph Archive contains about 60,000 original images and it is intended to make as many of these as possible available in the database.

The Anthropology Photographic Archive is a result of a joint project between the University Library and the Department of Anthropology to preserve and ensure long-term access to items in this valuable and unique research archive.
