The National Museum of Australia is exhibiting over 150 seminal indigenous objects, like a bark shield and two spears from the Aboriginal tribesmen that confronted Captain Cook, when he first came ashore at Botany Bay, in 1770. These extraordinary artefacts are on loan from the British Museum. They will return to Britain in March. Are these Australia’s Elgin Marbles? Should they be repatriated to Australia? What stories do they tell us about our troubled history?Paul Barclay is in discussion with an all-indigenous panel of guests at the NMA.
