From Map to Museum
by Joan Anderson & George Ancona

From Map To Museum is the behind the scenes story of one museum collection. This intriguing photo essay focuses on a major method of museum acquisition--the archeological dig--and one modern-day explorer, Dr. David Hurst Thomas, curator of anthropology at the Museum of Natural History in New York City and a leading archeologist in the field. It is a long painstaking journey from map to museum that begins on a tropical island off the coast of Georgia, where a real-life expedition is uncovering a lost Spanish mission and an extinct group of Indians, and ends in the storage rooms, curatorís offices and exhibit cases of the museum.
