Glasgow Life, Scotland, has taken another step forward in its efforts to return more than 50 cultural artefacts to the descendants of their rightful owners, the largest-ever repatriation of objects from a single collection in Scotland.

Glasgow Life, which managed the city’s museum collections, welcomed
a delegation from Nigeria and said the aim was to discuss the
repatriation of 19 Benin objects.

The group requested for the return of 51 items to Nigeria, India and the
Cheyenne River and Oglala Sioux Tribes in South Dakota, U.S.

Glasgow Life said it continued its positive history of repatriation by
returning the Benin bronzes to their rightful owners.
