Burke Museum to return artifacts to Peruvian government

 

After four years of coordination, several artifacts from the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture’s Peruvian collection returned to their home country last week.

The items include human remains, ceramic vessels and bowls, necklaces, and a textile, each of which have different histories.
