2008 Conference: 'Museum Ethnography At Home'

Conference Organisers: Alison Petch & Chris Wingfield

10 & 11 April, St John's College and Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford

However, the Pitt Rivers Museum is not the only UK ethnographic museum which actually has large ethnographic and archaeological collections from its own country.
