The Treasures of the British Museum

The Elgin Marbles may be the most notable example, but as the Director of the British Museum says in this article: "The range of the British Museum's collections is truly worldwide." So, what other booty plunder spoils of conquest disputed cultural treasures can be found in the museum's hallowed halls?

* The contents of the original Parthenon gift shop, including a wide selection of postcards

* A Hittite frieze depicting what is believed to be the first ever game of Twister

* Ayer's Roll, stolen from Australia in 1802

* Fourteen tonnes of pieces of the True Cross

* The mummified feet of St Ockwell

* Bangalore's tram network

* Former Swiss Finance Minister Otto Stich
