Determining the ownership of Human, Hominin, and Hominid remains from archeological and palaeontological sites.
[sciencythoughts.blogspot.com]
All humans can claim a common ancestral link to some Hominin and Hominid remains: this is one of the reasons that each recent discovery of previously unknown remains has generated tremendous levels of interest from both the scientific community and the general public alike. However, at the moment a ‘finders-keepers’ rule is frequently applied, whereby the person who extracts the fossilised remains from the landscape is allowed not only to keep them in a museum or laboratory, but also to ration access to the information that each specimen may reveal. Laws, principles and understandings on when the remains of a deceased person change from being protected to becoming ‘fair game’ for fossil collectors are at best inconsistent between jurisdictions, and at worst non-existent.
