Online exhibit - Harvard Peabody Museum of Anthropology and Ethnology

Dear H-Asia members,

I'd like to invite you to view a student-created exhibit that highlights the ship model collection at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University. Undergraduates were assigned a model vessel to research as part of the introduction to maritime archaeology class. Many of the vessels represent Asian and Southeast Asian boats. They have created several publicly-focused posts on the historical background and construction of their vessel, and as their final project will rewrite those as a more formal academic term paper.
