The British Museum would have no intention of returning the Parthenon marbles

The Director of the British Museum, Neil MacGregor, has communicated that there is absolutely no intention on the part of the Museum to return the Parthenon marbles to Greece.

These statements have been collected by the English newspaper "Evening Standard", where, according to reports, he expressed that the efforts of the Greek government will not have fruitful results.

«The long-standing position of the British Museum is that the acquisition of the famous sculptures made by Lord Elgin in the early 19th century was entirely legal and there was no 'maximum public benefit' in it, so they will remain in London«He explained.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
