It was great to visit the Horniman Museum in Forest Hill on Thursday to attend the Ode to the Ancestors exhibition, commemorating and celebrating the African Kenyan archaeologists whose names are absent from archaeological archives. The Horniman is not only returning these priceless artefacts to Nigeria, the country they were looted from in the nineteenth century; but returning ownership of them. If only other museums would take the same approach.
