    The Greek Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras, addressed the ECOFIN group yesterday evening at a dinner which took place in the Acropolis Museum.

    Excerpt from Ms Samara's speech:


    And even then, the remaining parts were...

    Nicholas Penny, the Director of the National Gallery made mention of the Parthenon Sculptures in an interview for the Sunday Times. In it he mentions that the British Museum would welcome a way to share the Parthenon Sculptures with Greece. Though there has been little evidence to support this given the Museum's refusal to even engage in meaningful conversation on the subject. Mr Penny also suggested that the argument of reunifying the sculptures so that the world can appreciate them in their original context is void, as the sculptures would not be placed back onto the...

    Did you know Bloomsbury has its own Caryatids? Sculpted by Charles Rossi in the early 1800s for St Pancras church located on Euston Road in London.

    George Clooney has hit back, following Boris Johnson's allegation last week that Clooney was advocating a Hitlerian agenda for London's cultural treasures.

    When it comes to real facts, not imagined history, you need only to look at the UNESCO rulings that have been agreed to by all parties. An occupying nation can't sell off the national heritage of the country it occupies. More relevant is the fact that the Parthenon Marbles were chipped away from the Parthenon by the...
