PostSubject: The Elgin Marbles, British Museum: Why returning them to Greece is (supposedly) a crazy idea    Mon Jun 11, 2018 8:28 pm

UK Labour opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn declared in an interview with the Greek newspaper Ta Nea last week that, as prime minister, he would open negotiations for the return of the Elgin Marbles - more properly known as the Parthenon Sculptures - to Athens. This apparently on the grounds that the original permission for their removal 200 years ago came not from the Greeks, but from the Ottoman Empire which occupied Greece from 1458 until the 1820s.



Mr Corbyn has been making this argument for many years, but I don't know how much thought he has given to the ramifications. From his latest statement it seems that he is anticipating a widespread repatriation of all artefacts "stolen or taken from occupied or colonial possession" included those "looted from other countries in the past".
