The museum at Cambridge University in Britain has been sitting on a treasure trove of Fijian artefacts for 200 years.

They have over 3-thousand undocumented artefacts, which were collected by traders, missionaries, whalers and colonial officials in the 18th century.

This year, a team began cataloguing the collection, which is considered one of the most important outside of Fiji.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutt

Speaker: Dr. Anita Herle, Senior Curator, Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Cambridge
