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

Thanks very much for the kind words. For anyone interested, the final parts of the project are now online: student-designed museum labels for their vessels, and then several students chose to submit a brief "reflections" post discussing their thoughts on the project as a whole.

Thank you!

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.
