Synopsis

Tiffany Jenkins tells how some of archaeology’s greatest treasures ended up in Western museums, from the Benin bronzes to the bust of Nefertiti. She looks at the intriguing and sometimes bloody tale of how these items were wrenched from their original context, arguing controversially that these objects should not be returned to the lands from which they came.

Tickets: £8.00.
