2010年，耶鲁大学(Yale)皮博迪自然历史博物馆(Peabody Museum of Natural History)同意把一个世纪前探险家希拉姆宾汉三世(Hiram Bingham III)在马丘比丘(Machu Picchu)出土的一些日常用品归还给秘鲁。重新购买失落的文化遗产的努力并不是没有几个争议。尽管中国对拥有归还流失文物的能力感到自豪，但批评主要集中在两个方面。首先，如果中国人民考虑买回从中国被盗的物品，那么这些回购行为就会产生意想不到的结果，从而验证和承认战争掠夺。其次，对中国被盗文物的疯狂回购，可以被认为是一种不幸的限制，将价格推高了很多。中国与国际刑事政策组织、世界海关组织等非政府和政府间组织积极合作，积极参与各国双边协议，努力追回被盗文物。
Since recent years, museums of Europe and United States of America can be seen to return their objects to the nation of origination. All of the cases help in telling some stories. Even though the act of repatriation is a major focus, it is important to look at several objects that dealt with the same situation, in order to analyse this case and identify the key difficulties that China might face during the period of repatriation. As a significant example, currently, the Goddess of Morgantina has been displayed in the archaeology based museum located in Aidone. The key idea was for spreading treasures of Italy across the nation, while allowing the viewers for seeing the work to be found in this context. The statue had been returned again to the music of police bands, while standing over a metal stand proudly in the museum. Further ahead, there are several ex-voto figures of Persephone or Kore have been displayed across the museum, as well as other objects from the Roman, Greek and Phoenician eras of the island. Some cases of repatriation can be seen underscoring nations which assert their place across the global stage instead of just considering reclaiming the previous glory.
In the year 2010, Peabody Museum of Natural History in Yale agreed on returning to a number of everyday objects to Peru that was unearthed a century ago at Machu Picchu by Hiram Bingham III, the explorer.Efforts of repurchasing lost culture based relics have not been free from several controversies. Even though China shows pride in gaining the ability of purchasing back lost cultural based relics, criticism has centralized upon two main aspects for the efforts. Firstly, if the population of China considers purchasing back objects that had been stolen from China, these repurchases are known to be having unintended results to validate and recognize war plunder. Secondly, the frenzied repurchases for the stolen culture based relics of China can be identified as unfortunate limitation to push prices much higher in comparison with their normative value. China has shown active cooperation with the International Criminal Policy Organization, the World Customs Organization and other non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations, while making an entry in the bilateral agreements of all nations with the efforts of recovering stolen culture based objects.
