Black History Month

Our Maori guests will explain the importance of returning human remains and Maori cultural objects. They will detail the research that has been taking place in New Zealand about how remains were collected for transport throughout Europe, and how remains are dealt with on their return. This will be a very moving seminar, and relevant for anyone interested in Colonial history, repatriation work and ways in which minority groups can be honoured.
