The Project

This website is the major product of the project 'Recovering the Material and Visual Cultures of the Southern Sudan: A Museological Resource' funded by a grant of £225,000 from the Resource Enhancement Scheme of the Arts and Humanities Research Council to Jeremy Coote and Elizabeth Edwards. The research phase of the project began in October 2003 and was completed in September 2005. Design and construction of the website was completed in October 2006, though additions, enhancements, and updates will continue to be made through 2007 and beyond.

Many people have provided advice and help in the development of this resource. In particular, the team would like to thank:

John Allen, Ahmed Al-Shahi, Anne Ashby, Carol Berger, Colin Harding, Wendy James, Charles Jedrej, Douglas Johnson, Paul Lane, Frances Larson, Mandy Sadan

The project would not have been possible without the support and assistance of the administrative, collections, conservation, ICT, library, photography, and technical staff of the Pitt Rivers Museum.

Additional work has been made possible by the support of the Renaissance in the Regions (South East).
