Anyone here ever returned a looted antiquity?

Recommended Posts

University of Penn's museum is returning stolen Italian land deeds from the 800s which were donated to them. Seems stolen in the 1990's and ended up in a collection given to them

"The first, known as the Waldipertus Land Grant Document, was recorded in 821 in Benevento, Italy. It details “a grant of level land in Murtula by Waldipertus (Gualdipertus), son of Aldelpertus, to Lupus, Lampertus, Amipertus, and Walpertus (Gualpertus), sons of Bonepertus, Dadeprandus, son of Radulus, and Adelprandus, son of Ragimpertus,” according to the court document."

Jeez, colorful bunch back then. :huh:

Good on the university.
