The Elgin Marbles

Stephen Kershaw (Guests are welcome (free entrance for DESY employees))

It is now around 200 years since the purchase of the so-called 'Elgin Marbles' from Lord Elgin by the British Parliament. This lecture will explore the aesthetics, the back-story and the heated debates surrounding these fascinating and controversial works of ancient Greek art which were originally part of the Parthenon and other buildings on the Acropolis of Athens.
