Plundered History. Stolen Culture (part two) Seeking The Truth

The second part of this blog exploring my post-covid reading comes out on International Museum Day. My recommended books question how the narrative around artifacts, publically displayed or hidden in private collections, needs to be rewritten to reflect the violent colonial looting that enabled the creation of western museums.

I am Reading Again ! Plundered History. Stolen Culture. (Part One.)

Inspired by a burst of post-Covid reading here are three books that have challenged me to consider cultural & religious items plundered during colonial & other conflicts but now gathering dust unseen in Museums & Galleries. The British Museum can only put some one percent of their items on display at any one time. Some artifacts, their loss still mourned by indigenous cultures, are still being sold immorally to wealthy collectors at public auction.
