The repatriation and reburial of human remains is a current debate in archaeology.  Various indigenous peoples around the world have requested that human remains from their respective communities be repatriated for reburial.  The debate involves people in the present and their perception of the past from a contemporary perspective.  This lecture will attempt to sort out these viewpoints.
