Event Details


Andrew Heavens tells the extraordinary story of Ethiopia’s Elgin Marbles, the Victorian kidnap of a young Ethiopian Prince who was taken to England with the country’s treasures and the campaign to return them to their original home. He’s joined by Barnaby Phillips, who has followed the worldwide trail of the Benin Bronzes. They tell tales of African loot and plunder – treasures stolen in the days of Empire and now stashed in Western museums – exploring where the treasures ended up and how those institutions are responding to mounting calls for their return.
