The collections at M.A.R.I. consist of primarily physical artifacts and photographs of archaeological and anthropological interest. At this time, only a fraction of our collection is available for online perusal, a situation we are continually working to rectify.
The online physical collection section consists of the descriptions of M.A.R.I. holdings sorted by continent, country, and sub-region. These artifacts range from Maya pot sherds to African masks.
The online photographic section is a list of collections. Some collections are donated by prominent scholars, others are sorted by continent, country, and listed by site or region. Photographs are of anthropological and ethnographic interest, archaeological finds and fieldwork, and often the people carrying out the work.
An on-going project at M.A.R.I. is the digitization of photographs, slides, negatives, lantern slides, maps, and other visual media. Unfortunately, these scans are not yet available on the M.A.R.I. website.
This online collection has hundreds of textiles from Mexico, Guatemala, and Panama. The textiles are sorted by country, state, and area. Each with a photograph and description.
