Ethiopians cheer as London museum returns plundered royal hair

Ethiopians cheer as London museum returns plundered royal hair

"Ethiopians, many dressed in the national colors of red, gold and green, cheered as staff at the National Army Museum handed over the remains...Hirut Kassaw will take the hair back to Ethiopia at the weekend where it will eventually be buried at the grave of Emperor Tewodros II...She thanked the museum...but called on it and other British institutions to return other items taken during the Victorian-era expedition: 'For Ethiopians, these are not simply artifacts or treasures but constitute a fundamental part of the existential fabric of Ethiopia and its people.'"
