The Centenary Gallery puts on show anthropological artefacts from cultures and civilisations from every continent. The gallery focuses on the changes in perspective of collectors over the last 100 years, from amateur enthusiasts like Frederick Horniman himself, to academic anthropologists such as Alfred Cort Haddon, the Museum's first advisory curator. Items collected by recent anthropology curators from places such as Nigeria, the American Southwest and Nepal show how collecting has become a much more collaborative enterprise.
