Will Ethiopian treasure (and the remains of a young prince) taken by Britain ever return home?


 This month marks the 150th anniversary of the battle of Maqdala when Britain sent a force nearly forty-thousand strong to Ethiopia after Emperor Tewodros the Second took some Britons hostage. The British soldiers won the battle and made off with precious treasure. More than ten years ago Ethiopia launched a formal claim to get the loot returned. Some of the artefacts has just gone on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and there are hints they might soon be on their way home to Ethiopia. I went to  the V&A and compiled this report for the BBC - click this link to listen: Ethiopian treasure

Here are some photos of the exhibition (provided by the V&A)
