Australian indigenous objects returned

Australian indigenous objects from the British Museum are being sent home to Australia. Most have not been seen in public. One is a shield with the provenance that Capt. Cook took it with him in 1770.  The objects will be part of an exhibit which will travel to various Australian cities. The report does not say the objects will stay in Australia permanently. Perhaps they will consider that. Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-31653858
