William Niven Tablets from the Peabody Museum at Harvard Part 2

I was made aware the Peabody Museum at Harvard University was holding a number of the ‘tablet‘ discoveries of William Niven from the Valley of Mexico. I have obtained permission to include images of three unnumbered ‘tablets‘ in the My-Mu.com blog.

  1. Is it just these photos that the museum holds the copyright to or the tablets themselves?
