Rosetta Stone Poll

Poll #131561 Who should have it?

Egypt has been trying for some time now to have the Rosetta Stone returned to them. France found it, the British Museum has been caring for it for many years...but it was found in Egypt. Who do you think ought to have possession?

France. Finders, keepers, man.

British Museum. Possession is 9/10 of the law. Plus, they've put a lot of resources over the years into keeping it safe and restoring it's original condition.

Egypt. It was stolen from them in the first place, after all.

Did you know about the restoration already?

Nope. And I don't care.
1(10.0%)
I knew that, but hadn't heard the revelation about the stone itself.
2(20.0%)
Yeah, yeah, knew all about it. Geez, you're slow off the mark, Raaven. This is old news.
2(20.0%)
No, I hadn't. But it's fascinating!
5(50.0%)

In general, how do you think that possession of historical artifacts should be handled on a worldwide basis?
