About 1800's Artifacts Website
This portion of the PRISM website was designed by our summer intern, Amy Connolly, who is a senior at a nearby Kansas high school. She took all the photographs, assembled the 360° movies, and digitally enhanced the backgrounds of all the photographs. She also designed the page layout and wrote the descriptions. This project was undertaken to allow online access to some of the L.L. Dyche ethnographic collection at the University of Kansas Museum of Anthropology and to help our intern become more familiar with digital technology and the Inuit culture of the late 1800s. We hope you enjoy it.
