Inside the Box: Benin objects in museums


Part 4 in the series Inside the Box: Benin objects in museums.

At least 2,000 items from Benin in Nigeria can be found at European and American museums. Almost every single one deriving from the British looting of Benin City in 1897. Should we return these heritage objects? We discuss ethics, power and law together with Staffan Lundén, doctor in archaeology at the University of Gothenburg and Michael Barrett, curator at the national Museums of World Culture.

Join us during the recording of the live podcast series Inside the Box - things and people in a globalized world!
