Tasmanians visit Cambridge, ask return of ancestral bones





Cambridge University is facing calls to hand back ancient skeletal remains.

The Tasmanian Aboriginal community wants the university to follow the lead of the Natural History Museum [in London] and return the specimens.

The museum has agreed to hand over four remains and is currently locked in talks with representatives from the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre (TAC) who are trying to stop them scientifically testing 13 others.

And while representatives are in England they hope to reclaim remains held by...Oxford University and National Museums Scotland.
