PBS Newshour Reports on the Parthenon Marbles

By Celebrate Greece

The 200+ year old controversy of repatriating the artwork (marble sculptures) taken from the Parthenon in the early 19th century (AD) by Lord Elgin of England with the supposed permission by Firman from the occupying Sultan and Ottoman Empire, continues to this day.  Should the British Museum (present 'owners' of the marbles in question) repatriate the marbles to Athens' new Acropolis Museum to be re-assembled with the other half of the original marbles?  Should the British Museum share/loan their marbles with Athens or elsewhere insuring that more people worldwide would visit and appreciate them than if they were all in Athens alone?  Or, should the British Museum be allowed to keep them right where they are today, in London?  We would love to hear your opinion below.
