BBC: Glasgow Museums to return seven stolen artefacts to India . “Six of the items, including 14th Century carvings and 11th Century stone door jams, were stolen from shrines and temples in the 19th Century. The seventh object, a ceremonial sword or called a tulwar, with its scabbard, was stolen in 1905 from the collection of the Nizam of Hyderabad by his prime minister. He then sold it to the British general Sir Archibald Hunter. All of the artefacts were gifted to Glasgow Museums.”
