The Arcadian Centre for Greek, Mediterranean and Balkan Studies hosts at 19.30 archaeologist and Ph.D. Candidate University of Cambridge, Ms. Venus Chatzoglou, which will give a lecture entitled:

The politics of Archaeological Heritage: The case study of the Parthenon Marbles and the New Acropolis Museum

The lecture deals with the cultural heritage management policies through the prism of one of the thorniest issues that concerned the return of the Parthenon Marbles. It presents the historical and legal background to the removal of marbles by Lord Elgin and the arguments of the British and the Greek side. It also explores how the recent construction of the New Acropolis Museum has added a powerful new argument for the return of the marbles.

Address: 26 Empedokleous Hall Diotima.
