Comparison of Geographical statistics regarding the Pitt Rivers Museum's collections up to 1945 - Decades of acquisition

[article ID:182]

NB It should be remembered that objects 'acquired' in the 1880s were often actually acquired much earlier as this total includes items transferred from the Ashmolean and the OUMNH both of which could have been (and probably were) acquired prior to 1884.

Is the pattern of acquisition different for archaeological and ethnographic objects over the decades between 1884 and 1945?
