Artefacts taken from India in the 19th century will be returned from the Glasgow museum collection where they had been kept, following a repatriation agreement.

The items to be repatriated include a ceremonial Indo-Persian tulwar, a sword, which is believed to date back to the 14th century, and an 11th-century carved stone door jamb taken from a Hindu temple in Kanpur.

Glasgow Life, the organisation which manages the city’s museum collections, on Friday welcomed dignitaries from the High Commission of India for a ceremony where they transferred ownership of the artefacts.
