Why Not Use Replicas.
Can we not make replicas of the Elgin Marbles and then return them to the rightful country from where we plundered them. It's not as if there aren't already other replicas in this and other museums.
P.S. I'm posting this under the same category as the BBC used.

Atheist: //If the Romans, French, Germans etc had pinched bits of the top slabs of Stonehenge and whisked them away to their own countries and museums, would we be happy with that?//
Not much point in doing that really, (there's plenty of big stones la bas) but the Bayeux Tapestry was made in England & I've never heard any claims that it should be returned there. Perhaps you could start a campaign Atheist ?
Why can't people be kind and let the Greeks have their stuff back? The English were famous for apologising when someone bumped into them, but they've changed. The new English (at least some of those of the AB persuasion) seem to have gone all American, and automatically start arguing the toss and posturing like silverbacks when their access to females is challenged.
