The controversy rages to this day about whether the Elgin Marbles (I prefer to call them the Parthenon Marbles) should be returned to Greece. The Greeks have built a new and spectacularly beautiful museum for them, hoping to show that they will be worthy stewards of their national heritage. So far Britain has not budged. There are a lot of ins and outs to this controversy but personally I am firmly in favor of their being returned to Greece. They belong there.
