Wow! After more than 20 years, the journey of an Igorot house and granary from the Philippines to the United Kingdom, and back to its native land, has officially come full circle.

This occurred after a symbolic turnover from the Horniman Museum and Gardens to the Philippines through the Philippine Embassy in London and the Pooten family in June.

Consul General Senen T. Mangalile said that the embassy in the European country has taken the promotion of the Philippines's culture as a "serious duty," not only "for the benefit of the British and other nationalities living there, but...[also for] second- and third-generation Filipinos born and raised in the UK who know very little about their rich cultural heritage."
