Lewis chessmen key players in British Museum manga

The British Museum acts as a backdrop for a new manga publication by Hoshino Yukinobu. Professor Munakata's British Museum Adventure stars "a portly ethnographer-cum-archaeologist who solves crimes and explains civilisations."

Some of the drama centers around the Lewis Chessmen, which Munakata opposes returning to Scotland, as well as the proposed reptriation of other museum icons such as the Parthenon marbles, the Rosetta stone, and the Benin bronzes.
