After 200 years in Scotland, historical heads returned to New Zealand





A row between Scotland and New Zealand over a group of tattooed Maori heads appears to be over.

The Marischal Museum at the University of Aberdeen handed over the nine toi moko from its huge collection of Maori exhibits to a Kiwi delegation.

The heads will be stored at Te Papa while researchers try to identify their source communities.

They were handed over at a ceremony in Aberdeen after almost 200 years in northeast Scotland.
