Pitt Rivers Museum

The Pitt Rivers Museum holds extensive Fijian collections from a range of collectors, including some of the early voyagers and missionaries who were in Fiji at a relatively early date. Of the approximately 1,000 objects from Fiji, about one-fifth came to the museum in 1884 as part of the founding collection given by General Pitt-Rivers. Many of the objects in the museum’s Fijian collections, including a number of photographs in the founding collection, are likely to be provenanced to pre-1870.  The museum also holds extensive photograph collections, including Arthur Hocart’s photographs from his four-year stay in Fiji in the early 20th century.
