More Aboriginal remains repatriated

6:17 am on 18 October 2011

One of the largest repatriations of Aboriginal remains in Australia has taken place at Sydney University.

Tribal elders from two outback communities have received the 250th set of ancestral bones to be returned by the university - a process begun in the mid-1990s.

Campaigners in Australia continue to lobby for the return of remains from overseas collections so they also can receive a traditional burial.
