Dull is the eye that will not weep to see
Far away from their native land, the Parthenon Marbles have been situated at the British Museum for over 150 years. That certainly means that there are continuous negotiations between the Greek government, asking for their return, and the British government who, together with the Trustees of the British Museum, have refused to do this.
In the pages below you can read about the history of the Parthenon Marbles as well as the points of view of the Greek government, the British government, the British political parties and the British Museum itself. Finally we explain our position and ask yours too. All it takes is a minute or two to send us an email. We hope that you enjoy reading our pages and learn a lot, as we did.email us
