The Elgin Marbles

Satisfactory Essays
The Elgin Marbles are a collection of Greek marble sculptures made by the citizens of Athens, originally part of the Parthenon. In the early 1800s, the marbles where removed from the building and transported overseas to Britain to be on display in the British Museum, where they reside currently. In my opinion, the marbles should be returned to their site of origin. These sculptures hold great cultural significance to Greece and deserve to be on display where they were built. Today, the Parthenon is protected and preserved, thus the artifacts would be protected as well, where they belong.
