Jesus College Cambridge has decided to return their Benin Bronze, the well known cockerel, to Nigeria.
https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...bridge-college

The cockerel was stolen by British colonial troops, along with thousands of other bronzes, in the late-19th century.

This is a great gesture. The best way to deal with a past where we oppressed others is to say sorry and offer some recompense. :yep:

Well done to Jesus College. :five:

Good! We should say sorry to Wales and give them back Presteigne, or Chester.
