Oxford's Pitt Rivers Museum houses one of the world's great collections of 18th century Pacific island art and cultural artifacts, collected during James Cook's second voyage of discovery (1772-1775), during which he and his crew discovered many of the Tuamouto, Society, Tongan, and Fijian islands.

On this voyage, Cook was accompanied by Johann Reinhold Forster and his son George Adam Forster, appointed "at the King's pleasure" naturalists to the expedition. 

At the conclusion of the journey their extensive collections and notes were forwarded directly to Oxford University's Vice Chancellor Thomas Fothergill.
