About the Event

In the two centuries since they were removed from the Parthenon by Lord Elgin the meaning and significance of the ‘Elgin Marbles’ has changed dramatically.  From architectural decoration to disputed cultural objects this lecture looks at the response to them over their time in Britain, from the original controversy over their purchase to the current debate surrounding the restitution of the marbles to the new Acropolis Museum in Athens.
