ADFAS Mudgee Presents - The Sculptures of the Parthenon, or How Lord Elgin Gained and Lost his Marbles   

Lecture by Allan Read, MA MITG

 In the two centuries since Lord Elgin removed them from the Parthenon, the meaning and significance of the ‘Elgin marbles’ has changed dramatically. From architectural decoration to disputed cultural objects, we look 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.
