While Australia acknowledged the museum obtained the skull in a manner "entirely consistent with the applicable laws and protocols," it requested that it be repatriated, and the museum announced Tuesday it will oblige.

Seems like a good decision. Remains of known soldiers should be interred in their native country, or where family wants them. The museum still has plenty of oddities and freak stuff to stay in business.

BTW, The Mutter Museum is a both an interesting and gross museum to see medical oddities but go to lunch after you see the museum.

As long as it was being used as a teaching aid having had some justification.

If just a display piece, bury it with the rest of the soldier's remains.
