Protesters At British Museum Call For The Return Of Parthenon Sculptures

The British Museum opened its doors on Thursday after a 163-day closure sparked by the Covid-19 pandemic.

On the same day, the first visitors to the museum were protestors calling for the return of the Parthenon sculptures to Greece.

The protestors were dressed as Thomas Bruce, the 7th Earl of Elgin who brought them to the UK, and one of the Caryatid sisters represented in the ancient statues. She held a sign featuring the phrase “#LOSTMYMARBLES”.
