This virtual museum is developed by the Research Centre in Evolutionary Anthropology and Palaeoecology (RCEAP) in collaboration with DigiArt.
The museum is a showcase of the work by anthropologists at LJMU on skeletal material housed in their university collections. Because the university doesn’t have an exhibition space, the virtual museum allows the researchers at RCEAP to showcase things normally hidden away in collections and to engage with the public with its research.
RCEAP at LJMU
RCEAP was founded in 2004 and is one of two formally recognised research centres in the School of Natural Sciences and psychology. Focusing on biological anthropology in a science rather than a social science milieu engenders a strong interdisciplinary and hypothesis-testing approach to our research, which has an emphasis on fieldwork.
Our specialist subjects include human variation and evolution, the study of animal societies and forensic anthropology.
