Recommended Posts

"An outspoken human rights lawyer in a new book is calling for European and US institutions to return treasures taken from subjugated peoples by “conquerors or colonial masters.”

"In the new book by Geoffrey Robertson AO QC, the British Museum is accused of exhibiting “pilfered cultural property” and urged to ‘wash its hands of blood and return Elgin’s loot’.

“The trustees of the British Museum have become the world’s largest receivers of stolen property, and the great majority of their loot is not even on public display,” Robertson charges.

"His views appear in the book, “Who Owns History? Elgin’s Loot and the Case for Returning Plundered Treasure.”
