Sad news about Peter Derow

Posted at 2:24 pm in Parthenon 2004

I was informed today of the tragic news that Dr Peter Derow, a long time supporter of the campaign for the return of the Elgin Marbles had collapsed & died at the weekend.
Peter Taught Ancient History at Wadham College, Oxford & was one of the original founding members of the Parthenon 2004 campaign (now known as Marbles Reunited). His wisdom & anecdotes & the intellectual clout that he added to the campaign will be sorely missed.
