Custodial history

Scope and content

[Source - Nessa Leibhammer for FHYA using MAA materials, 2016: Sir William Ridgeway was the Chairman of the School of Archaeology and Anthropology at Cambridge, and the Disney Professor of Archaeology. He first appears in the MAA records in 1896 when he became a member of The Antiquarian Committee and donated several archaeological artefacts to the collection, AR 1896.75-88. He remained an avid collector, with a particular interest in currency, but contributed to collections from many regions of the world. He died in 1926 and bequeathed his archaeological and ethnographic collections to MAA. The FHYA selection of this material consists of objects from the FHYA target area of KwaZulu-Natal and immediately adjacent regions.]
