USA Today: UK museum removes shrunken heads from exhibit in an effort to ‘decolonize’ its collections . “Oxford University’s Pitt Rivers Museum has removed its famous collection of shrunken heads and other human remains from display as part of a broader effort to ‘decolonize’ its collections. The museum, known as one of the world’s leading institutions for anthropology, ethnography and archaeology, had faced charges of racism and cultural insensitivity because it continued to display the items.”
