Ancient Welsh woman's remains returned home

Custody battles over contested artifacts and remains are often in the news. Sometimes the items in question are repatriated to their home nation, country, historical institution or returned to descendants of the owner. Here's a case of an ancient woman's remains housed in England finally returning to Wales after a tv show discussed her contested remains. After the show aired, representatives from the two historical institutions  met and discovered they had more in common than not. As a result, a vote occurred and all agreed to return her remains to her homeland. Wouldn't it be great if all contested artifacts, remains, and information could be handled so amicably? She lived in 3510 B.C.  See http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-lancashire-31464728 for more info.
