The Dead and their Possessions

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Dead and their Possessions: Repatriation in principle, policy and practice. Published by Routledge, an imprint of Taylor & Francis Group.

The book is in very good condition, with minimal wear along the edges of the hardcover. The pages are clean, with no markings on the inside or discolouration along the edges.

Inspired by a key session for the World Archaeological Congress in South Africa, The Dead and their Possessions is the first book to tackle the principle, policy and practice of repatriating museum artefacts, rather than cultural heritage in general. Increasingly, indigenous people world-wide are asserting their fundamental right to determine the future of the human remains of their ancestors, and are requesting their return, often for reburial, with varying degrees of success. This repatriation campaign has become hugely significant in universities and museums where human remains uncovered through archaeological excavation have been retained for the scientific study of past populations. This book will be invaluable to those involved in the collection and repatriation of remains and cultural objects to indigenous groups.
