British Museum to be moved to Athens

Marbles > Lost
The British Museum and its entire contents is to be moved to Athens in time for the 2004 Olympic Games, it was announced this week. The decision to relocate the museum is seen as the only way of resolving the 200-year old dispute between Britain and Greece over the future of the so-called Elgin Marbles.
Heh! From the persistently funny ArtNose... which provides a link to this interesting (serious) website about the Parthenon Frieze.
