The Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology at Harvard University began issuing monographs, archaeological research reports, and other publications related to the Museum’s collections and scholarly activities in 1888. Today, Peabody Museum Press continues to publish the unique resources of the Museum and the work of its affiliated scholars. The Press publishes original research in Old World and New World archaeology, zooarchaeology, biological and sociocultural anthropology, indigenous arts, anthropology and aesthetics, and material culture.

The mission of the Peabody Museum Press is to disseminate knowledge, stimulate academic discourse, advance the subjects of archaeology and anthropology, and make the museum’s collections more accessible to researchers, museum visitors, and the general public. The Press publishes works by scholars affiliated with the Museum and Harvard’s Department of Anthropology and by specialists working with the museum’s collections. It also publishes the journal Res: Anthropology & Aesthetics.

Souvenirs of the Fur Trade: Northwest Coast Indian Art and Artifacts Collected by American Mariners, 1788-1844

Malloy, Mary

American mariners made more than 175 voyages to the Northwest Coast during the half-century after the ships Columbia and Washington pioneered the route from Boston in 1787. Although obtaining sea otter pelts for the China trade was the original purpose of the voyages, the art and culture of Northwest Coast Indians so intrigued and fascinated American sailors that the collecting of ethnographic artifacts became an important secondary trade. By carefully researching the records of ten institutions and the shipboard journals of more than a dozen mariners, Mary Malloy has brought details about these early collections together for the first time.

Making Dead Birds: Chronicle of a Film

Gardner, Robert

This detailed and candid account of the process of making Robert Gardner’s classic Dead Birds is more than the chronicle of a single work. His film is one of the most highly acclaimed and controversial documentaries ever made.

This book not only addresses the art and practice of filmmaking, but also explores issues of representation and the discovery of meaning in human lives.

Sacred Spaces: A Journey with the Sufis of the Indus

Quraeshi, Samina

Influenced by philosophies and traditions from other Muslim lands and by pre-Islamic rites and practices, Sufism offers a corrective to the image of Islam as monolithic and uniform. In Sacred Spaces, Pakistani artist and educator Samina Quraeshi provides a vision of Islam in South Asia enriched by both art and a female perspective on the diversity of Islamic expressions of faith. An account of a journey in search of the wisdom of the Sufis, the book reveals the deeply spiritual nature of major centers of Sufism in the central and northwestern heartlands of South Asia. Essays by Ali S. Asani, Carl W. Ernst, and Kamil Khan Mumtaz provide context.

Pecos Pueblo Revisited: The Biological and Social Context

Morgan, Michèle E.

Alfred V. Kidder’s excavations at Pecos Pueblo in New Mexico, 1914–1929, set a new standard for archaeological fieldwork. Today the Pecos sample is used in comparative studies of fossil hominins and recent populations alike. In the 1990s, while documenting the collection in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act before the remains were returned to the Pueblo of Jemez and reinterred at Pecos Pueblo, Michèle E. Morgan and colleagues undertook a painstaking review of the field data. In Pecos Pueblo Revisited, these scholars review some of the most significant findings from Pecos Pueblo in the context of current Southwestern archaeological and osteological perspectives.
