"After years of pressure, Germany recently announced that an agreement had been
reached to return hundreds of priceless artefacts and artworks that had been
looted from Nigeria in colonial times and were on display in German museums.
Commonly called the Benin Bronzes, these beautiful and technically remarkable
artworks have come to symbolise the broader restitution debate. Why has it
taken so long, will other countries follow Germany and what happens next? We
asked a leading expert on colonial German history and a prominent voice in the
debate around the artefacts, Dr Jürgen Zimmerer, to tell us."
