The Ethnography Collections

The UCL Ethnographic collections are used primarily as a teaching resource and are highly important since they are unique to universities in London, and rare within the context of UK universities. There are about 3000 artifacts in the collection, representing the areas of art, technology and material culture from a wide range of civilizations, mainly from the last several centuries but also some ancient material. This diverse and striking collection has weaponry, textiles, basketry, musical instruments, and fetish and charm objects.
