Analysing the English Collections at the Pitt Rivers Museum

Preparation of statistics

The statistics were prepared by Alison Petch, researcher on the 'Other Within' project team between September and November 2006. An earlier version had been produced for the original application to the ESRC for funding in 2005 but this was superseded by the research work and cleaning of the Museum's databases carried out by Alison early in the project.

David Harris prepared the statistics for the web, originally produced using the Filemaker Museum collections management database with the aid of Microsoft Word and Excel.

If you can think of other statistics that would be useful then please let us know via prm@prm.ox.ac.uk
