Hundreds of thousands of stolen, Colonial Era artefacts are on display in Western museums. Will they ever be returned home?
In this episode, Jessica is joined by Dr Yirga Gelaw Woldeyes, an expert in colonialist epistemic violence research. He describes the types of artefacts that have been stolen, why museums are starting to repatriate these artefacts and how their return will influence future interpretations of history.
