Scotland’s University of Aberdeen said on Thursday it would return a Benin Bronze to Nigeria within weeks, one of the first public institutions to do so more than a century after Britain looted the sculptures and auctioned them to Western museums and collectors. Reuters reports that Germany is in talks to send back 440 Benin Bronzes as early as the autumn, while the University of Cambridge’s Jesus College said it had finalised approvals in December to return another Bronze. US museums have also agreed to return two more Bronzes while the British Museum, which holds hundreds of the sculptures, has alongside several other museums formed a Benin Dialogue Group to discuss displaying them in Benin City, some officially on loan.
