Should the Elgin Marbles go back to Greece? I say yes.
Yes, they should go back to Athens.
I guess you need to live in Europe to know what this is all about . I have never heard about Elgin Marbles . I did play with marbles as a kid .
The Elgin Marbles are a series of relief stone carvings which once formed a frieze around the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens. They were removed by an English aristo, Elgin in the 19th century, and are on display in the British Museum in London.
There is a long standing dispute, and the Greeks would like them back.
Opinion article in The Times calls for their return.
