Description

The research project HOME (Human Remains Origin(s) Multidisciplinary Evaluation) focuses on non-Belgian human remains. It aims to find out how many human remains are present in different institutions and private collections and has the ambition to gather all available information on this subject. This project aims to identify individuals amongst the human remains, investigate the conditions in which human remains were collected and better understand past lifestyles, both cultural and biological. Experts will also examine the legal aspects of restitution or repatriation of non-Belgian human remains.
