• 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...

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.

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.

Please Spread the video, helps to return the Parthenon Marbles. Of the 97 extant stones from the Parthenon frieze, 56 are in London and 40 in Athens. Of the 64 extant metopes, 48 are located in Athens and 15 in London. Of the 28 extant forms of pediments, 19 are in London and 9 in Athens. After almost 200 years, it is time to do the right thing. It is time to give the Greeks what is rightfully and historically theirs. It is time to return the Parthenon marbles to Athens,and to be exhibited at the new museum which have been built just for this purpose next to the temple they were located for over 2200 years. http://www.returnthemarbles.com/index-gr.php

The Elgin Marbles (/ˈel gin/), also known as the Parthenon Marbles, are a collection of Classical Greek marble sculptures made under the supervision of the architect and sculptor Phidias and his assistants. They were originally part of the temple of the Parthenon and other buildings on the Acropolis of Athens In 1801, Thomas Bruce, 7th Earl of Elgin obtained a firman, which was an official decree from the Sublime Porte, the central government of the Ottoman Empire which were then the rulers of Greece. After gaining its independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1832, Greece began a series of projects to restore its monuments. It has expressed its disapproval of Elgin's removal of the Marbles from the Acropolis and the Parthenon, which is regarded as one of the world's greatest cultural monuments. Greece continues to urge the return of the marbles to Greece for their unification by diplomatic and political means (Source: Wikipedia)
