What's your opinion on the Elgin Marbles? Should we give them back to Greece, or should we keep them?

The Petrie Museum will be exploring this very subject in a wider context, discussing whether the treasures housed in Western museums should be returned to their places of origin.

There are plenty of arguments for and against the repatriation of artefacts, and a panel of experts will discuss these issues from their own perspectives.
