Watch The Museum online: Episode 2 Bodies Of Knowledge

Iron Age bodies preserved in a bog, Sudanese sacrifice victims and 40 or so mummies are just a few of the 8000 plus body parts held in the British Museum. They all help tell us about the past, but do human remains belong in a museum? Two young Tasmanian aboriginals have come to London to reclaim the remains of their ancestors, that have been in the Museum's collection for 125 years. It's an historic occasion. The BM is the first National Museum to hand back human remains since British law was changed in 2004.
