Pue’s Poll: How should we treat human remains?

24 August 2009

Our new poll is up and asks your opinion on the use of human remains in history exhibits.  We put this one up because it seems to have been a topic of conversation recently.  The Bodies Exhibition just closed in Dublin and it generated a little (but less than expected) controversy over the source of its displays.  Have a look at this thorough review.  In addition, efforts by Aboriginal groups to repatriate remains of Aborigines currently housed in British museums has attracted media attention.  So should humans be treated differently in life and death?  Have your say!
