The Peabody Museum of Archeology and Ethnology at Harvard University has generously made available it’s collection of Philippine objects. At over 3,000 objects, it represents the largest addition to date to the Mapping Philippine Material Culture site.

The Peabody's extensive collection (over 8,000 ethnographic and photographic materials)* from the Philippines, were primarily acquired between 1900 and 1930 by anthropologists, colonial administrators, and other collectors such as Henry Otley Beyer, John M. Garvan, William Cameron Forbes, Lewis H. Farlow, and Olov Janse.
