What is a life well lived? What is it that we hold dear?
Our Anthropology collections show some of the ways ordinary people from every continent live their lives, caring for each other and making their way in the world. People everywhere share stories, raise children, celebrate life and remember their dead.
We can learn from the many different ways that people understand and describe the world we all share. We can discover the common human virtues of love and compassion, trust and friendship, dignity and courage.
