  • [01] Parthenon Marbles-Australia

    25/01/2000 12:08:26

    A delegation from the Australian Committee for the Return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece will fly to London this week to submit a memorandum to the British parliament calling for the repatriation of the Marbles, currently housed in the British Museum.

    The high-profile committee, which includes two Australian former prime ministers, deputies, congressmen and intellectuals, has launched a public campaign with widespread media coverage, and its next step is to put pressure on the British government.

    The Parthenon friezes, which date from between 447 BC and 432 BC, were removed from the Acropolis in Ottoman-occupied Athens in the early 19th century by British diplomat Lord Elgin, who then sold them to the British Museum.
