Whose artefacts are they anyway? The politics of provenance

Should artefacts in European and Western Museums be returned to their place of origin or should they remain in situ? From the Elgin Marbles to the Bust of Nefertiti there are arguments for and against the repatriation of artefacts. To link with our current Heritage Lottery Fund research project Different Perspectives: Archaeology and the Middle East in WWI, we’ve brought together a panel to discuss this issue from different points of view.
Join writer and cultural commentator Tiffany Jenkins as she talks about issues from her book ‘Keeping Their Marbles: How the Treasures of the Past Ended Up in Museums - And Why They Should Stay There’ and Heba Abd-El-Gawad, from Durham University as she talks about contemporary Egyptian perspectives on national identity and objects.
