Yale University returns Stolen Art 2011

On March 30, 2011, the nation of Peru welcomed back to Peru over 45,000 Incan artifacts that were “taken” over 100 years earlier from the famed citadel of Machu Picchu.  The artifacts were at Yale University; the government of Peru held that they were on loan, not a gift, and wanted back their heritage.  The Peruvian government successfully filed a lawsuit against Yale in 2008.  (Photo by AFP)
