Pitt Rivers Museum
When Lt.General Pitt Rivers, a man remembered for his contribution to the development of evolutionary anthropology and archaeology decided to give his extensive collection to the Oxford University , he did so on two conditions. One that a museum would need to be built to house the collection, and two, that a lecturer would need to be appointed to teach anthropology. The Pitt Rivers Museum is a splendid structure that stands today as the place which houses these rare, precious, and beautiful objects which were originally about 18,000 artifacts, but now total up to over half a million in all!
