Archaeology, Identity and the Right to Culture. Anthropological perspectives on repatriation

Nilsson Stutz, Liv LU (2007) In Current Swedish Archaeology 15. p.1-16
Abstract
The debate concerning repatriation and reburial has recently earned increasing attention in Sweden. While most archaeologists today understand the importance of repatriation and the arguments underlying the claims, the process is not completely unproblematic, and certainly not in all cases. This article explores some tendencies within the international debate about repatriation and frames them within a more general discussion about human rights, right to culture and the role of cultural heritage within this debate. Through a critical approach to the debate it is argued that archaeology needs to be a more active party in the negotiations.
