As we seek to understand the depth and breadth of a conflict, it’s important to look back to the cultural artifacts. Whether ancient or current, scholarly or commonplace, these items offer us an insight into past technological processes, economic development, and social structure, among other attributes. Artifacts can frame the way we view and think about the world — past and present—as well as how we understand and approach the past.
We are continuously adding to this collection.
