Re: Online ship model exhibit - Harvard Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology

This is a most worthwhile project, Michelle. Bringing student time and energy to museum and archival collections--which always present more work than a full-time staff can get to--is great for the students, the collection, the staff, and the visitors. The site looks great, and I learned some things from it. For those of us in the West who are primarily familiar with Western vessels, access to this sort of information about Asian and indigenous craft is always a boon. I highly recommend list members check this out.

Online ship model exhibit - Harvard Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology

Dear Listmembers,

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. 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.
