Human remains are to be returned to Australia by the University of Oxford, after a request by the Australian Government and the Ngarrindjeri Heritage Committee. The three different sets of remains from Ngarrindjeri people have been in Oxford since the 19th century. The move comes in the wake of the Australian Government's policy of seeking to repatriate Aboriginal remains. Jim Kennedy, director of Oxford's Museum of Natural History, said: "This is the second time the university's procedure for repatriation has been used. It has enabled us to balance our duty of care for these items, the requirements of science and the sensitivities and beliefs of the claimant community."
