Archaeology, Identity, and the Right to Culture: Anthropological perspectives on repatriation
The debatc concerning repatriation and reburial is attracting increasing attention in Sweden. While most archaeologists today understand the importancc of repatriation and the arguments underlying the claim, 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, the right to culture, and the role of cultural heritage within this debatc. Through a critical approach to the debate, it is argucd that archaeology needs to be a more active party in the negotiations.
