Should museums return their colonial artifacts?


Leaders in nations that were once European colonies are calling for artifacts stored in museums to be returned. Do they have a right to demand the items be given back?

  1. A 💯
    I think this is a great move, because if these artifacts can go back to their homelands, it would rightfully tell more about their civilisation.
    Colonialism is only a way to get hands on the territories and achievements on the foreign lands. Due to this, their own essence is lost.

  2. Interesting comment. I’ve been reading a bit and watching videos about ancient history and am amazed at how the story of humanity is largely about conquest, plunder, gathering treasure and showing off.
