UWAC Database Overview

The UW Anthropology Collection database is a work in progress. A number of collection objects/artifacts contain restricted information, be it legally restricted (precise geographic locations) or culturally sensitive. Therefore, the interface provided here is designed to initiate, not to complete, inquiry. Museum staff are continually adding, verifying, and updating database records. Users are encouraged to verify all search data with the UWAC curator and/or the original data sources prior to finalizing project tasks or analysis.

*We are currently developing our online database content and search capabilities. Please check back soon to access this valuable resource!
