Museum collections around the world contain cultural artefacts and natural history specimens acquired during the C19th and C20th from places now designated as World heritage Sites. Here at The Earth Museum we have a vision that one day it may be possible at the very least to digitally repatriate these scattered treasures, reconnecting with the people, places and other collections which give them meaning in the past, present and future.

This week’s World Heritage Site inspired story focuses on one such Indus Valley Civilisation artefact, a small seal now residing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
