The Peabody Museum's osteological collections derive from more than eighty countries on six continents, largely from archaeological contexts, and include human and nonhuman primate remains, fossils, and casts. The map below illustrates the geographical distribution of the collection.
Please note: The Osteology Department will be closed to researchers from January 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
