• Send them back: The Parthenon Marbles should be returned to Athens

    This debate took place at Cadogan Hall on 11th June 2012. Event info: What's all this nonsense about sending the Parthenon Marbles back to Greece? If Lord Elgin hadn't rescued them from the Parthenon in Athens and presented them to the British Museum almost 200 years ago, these exquisite sculptures -- the finest embodiment of the classical ideal of beauty and harmony -- would have been lost to the ravages of pollution and time. So we have every right to keep them: indeed, returning them would set a dangerous precedent, setting off a clamour for every Egyptian mummy and Grecian urn to be wrenched from the world's museums and sent back to its country of origin. It is great institutions like the British Museum that have established such artefacts as items of world significance: more people...

Episode: 3 In 1803, more than 200 pieces of marble statues and friezes, considered to be among the highest expressions of classical civilization, were removed from the ancient Parthenon in Athens and taken to England. The feat was the work of Scottish Lord Thomas Elgin, British Ambassador to Constantinople, in his attempt to rescue the pieces from certain devastation by Turkish troops. Instead of accolades for his accomplishment, Elgin met with imprisonment, bankruptcy and the loss of his wife. Even the marble he had tried to preserve became a subject of intense controversy, prompting poet Lord Byron to allegedly write, "What the Goths sp...

    It's been 200 years since the Greek Parthenon marbles were taken from Athens by a Scottish Lord and sold to the British government. The sculptures now sit in the British Museum. Where they've become a source of national injustice for many Greeks, who say they were removed illegally and should be returned. There are thousands of artefacts around the world, that have been stolen, sold or traded through dubious means. And some countries want them back. Some of the most controversial pieces are Egyptian. They include the Rosetta Stone, discovered by a Frenchman and later acquired by the British. As well as the bust of Queen Nefertiti, discovered by a German archaeologist, which now sits in a Berlin museum. The Egyptian government wants both pieces returned. Other disputed artefa...

It is great institutions like the British Museum that have established such artefacts as items of world significance: more people see the Marbles in the BM than visit Athens every year. Why send them back to relative obscurity? But aren't such arguments a little too imperialistic? All this talk of visitor numbers and dangerous precedents -- doesn't it just sound like an excuse for Britain to hold on to dubiously acquired treasures that were removed without the consent of the Greek people to whom they culturally and historically belong? That's what Lord Byron thought, and now Stephen Fry is taking up the cause. We should return the Marbles as a gesture of solidarity with Greece in its financial distress, says Fry, and as a mark of respect for the cradle of democracy and the birthplace of rational thought.

M/S Amal Clooney and panel at press conference M/S Amal Clooney smiling at press SCRIPT Human rights attorney and wife of actor George Clooney, Amal Clooney, was in Athens on Wednesday, taking part in a Greek campaign to reclaim the fifth-century B.C. Elgin Marbles from Britain. The Lebanese-born British lawyer, formally known as Amal Alamuddin, was mobbed by press on her arrival in the Greek capital, while on her way to a press conference on the reclamation of the Greek statues. The sculptures in question where used as decorations for 2000 years at the Parthenon temple on the Acropolis. Scottish nobleman Lord Elgin removed the statues in the Nineteenth Century following the Turkish occupation of Greece, later putting them on show at the British Museum in London. Clooney and her Greek counterparts maintain that the statues were illegally taken, which both the British Museum and government have refused to recognise.

(1995) Seekers of the lost treasure: The curse of the Elgin marbles History Documentary hosted by Jeremy Irons, published by Discovery Channel in 1995. Episode: 3 In 1803, more than 200 pieces of marble statues and friezes, considered to be among the highest expressions of classical civilization, were removed from the ancient Parthenon in Athens and taken to England. The feat was the work of Scottish Lord Thomas Elgin, British Ambassador to Constantinople, in his attempt to rescue the pieces from certain devastation by Turkish troops. Instead of accolades for his accomplishment, Elgin met with imprisonment, bankruptcy and the loss of his wife. Even the marble he had tried to preserve became a subject of intense controversy, prompting poet Lord Byron to allegedly write, "What the Goths spared, the Scots destroyed.” The series includes these 4 volumes: 1. The Michael Rockefeller story 2. Thompson and the Well of Sacrifice 3. The curse of the Elgin marbles 4. The Great Belzoni

It's been 200 years since the Greek Parthenon marbles were taken from Athens by a Scottish Lord and sold to the British government. The sculptures now sit in the British Museum. Where they've become a source of national injustice for many Greeks, who say they were removed illegally and should be returned. There are thousands of artefacts around the world, that have been stolen, sold or traded through dubious means. And some countries want them back. Some of the most controversial pieces are Egyptian. They include the Rosetta Stone, discovered by a Frenchman and later acquired by the British. As well as the bust of Queen Nefertiti, discovered by a German archaeologist, which now sits in a Berlin museum. The Egyptian government wants both pieces returned. Other disputed artefacts include the Indian Koh-i-Noor diamond, one of the largest in the world. It was taken by Britain's East India Company and presented to Queen Victoria. But should nations have the right to reclaim cultural property that may have been wrongly taken in the past?
