Does the British Museum show the country’s past atrocities abroad?

A visit to the British Museum is likely to leave any foreigner wondering how the country came about the numerous artifacts from the remotest parts of the world to the most traversed tribes. I wondered aloud to my companions during my visit there if the museum should even be called ‘British Museum’ in the first place. I mean, how many original British icons are even there? Name it World Museum or House of Past Robberies if you will.

From the iconic Ori Olokun to the acropolis of Greece and Egyptian sarcophagus. It’s just amazing.  But the preservation culture of this country is amazing though.
