During his visit to Sydney in January, the prince met several Aboriginal elders who asked him to help repatriate the skull.

More than 200 years ago, Pemulwuy led a war of resistance against the British settlers.

Considered a "pest", he was eventually decapitated and his head was sent to England. Today, the whereabouts of the skull remains a mystery. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
