from their project description page:
The Anthropology Photographic Archive database contains a selection of images from the Department of Anthropology Photographic Archive, The University of Auckland.
The images record staff research in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands in the field of archaeology and social anthropology from 1950 to date. At present approximately 5000 images have been described in the database ranging from social anthropology in Papua New Guinea and Tokelau, to archaeology in Western Samoa, Tonga and New Zealand.
The Anthropology Photograph Archive contains about 80,000 original images and it is intended to make as many of these as possible available in the database.
[...] This is an ongoing project. At present (June 2004) over 5000 social anthropology and archaeology photographs from New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Western Samoa, Solomon Islands and Tokelau are described.
The database is publicly accessible. [added 09/27/05]
