- 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!
