From the Carnelian seal-stone of the Vehdin-Shapur to a 20th-century squirrel parka worn by the Yup’ik of Alaska, the British Museum and Google have announced details of a digital partnership allowing people to view in detail nearly 5,000 objects online.
The project is one of the biggest yet by the Google Cultural Institute which, since 2011, has been putting museum collections online and using its Street View technology to allow virtual tours.
