Objects and Their Stories: Highlights from the Robert S. Peabody Museum
The interplay between past intellectual perspectives on Native people, the development of American archaeology as a discipline, and the intersection with American Indian histories are intertwined in this exhibit that looks at the stories told by objects from the collections of the Peabody Museum.
Who Were the Hopewell?
This small exhibit highlights select artifacts from the Hopewell culture of the Mississippi River Valley excavated by Warren K. Moorehead in 1891-1892. This exhibit case was curated by eight Peabody Museum work duty students.
Pecos Pueblo: Crossroads of Culture
This exhibit features objects collected by archaeologist Alfred V. Kidder during his pioneering stratigraphic work at Pecos Pueblo, New Mexico between 1915 and 1929. The detailed diorama of Pecos created by Stuart Travis recreates life at the Pueblo, while images and artifacts relate the complex history of this ancient community, whose descendants now reside at Jemez Pueblo.
