The treatment of human remains, whether they are contained in museum collections, connected with royalty or discovered during the course of building or other works, gives rise to a host of moral, ethical, religious and legal issues.
Should all remains be treated in the same way? If not where are the boundaries? If museums use human remains, are the boundaries the same for all uses (exhibition, teaching and scientific research)? Do we treat cultures that have disappeared (e.g. the Sumerians or ancient Egyptians) differently from living cultures and why do museums take the approach they do? How should the rights of indigenous peoples to the remains of their ancestors be properly respected?
