Beadwork: part I

In the 1960s, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology donated a collection of more than 200 assorted objects from around the world, many with unknown or limited provenience, to the Temple Anthropology Lab for use as an ethnographic study collection.  Some of these artifacts are examples of Native North American beadwork.
