Our mission is to promote understanding of cultural diversity and commonality in the past and present. As the largest anthropological data bank in the world, eHRAF features global samples of cultures and traditions, with ethnographic and archaeological data subject-indexed at the paragraph level. In our live webinars, you can learn more about the eHRAF databases, including how cultures and traditions are organized by regions, sub-regions, samples, and subsistence types. First developed in the 1930s by George Peter Murdock, a cultural anthropologist at Yale University, HRAF’s unique culture/tradition classification and subject indexing systems continue to provide the framework for our online databases, eHRAF World Cultures and eHRAF Archaeology. A typical 60-minute eHRAF webinar usually consists of the following parts:
