Hidden stories of the diaspora

It is a worldwide fact that almost half of the Parthenon sculptures are in the British Museum in London, the result of the monument’s looting by the crews of Thomas Bruce, Lord of Elgin, in the early 19th century. There are, however, smaller fragments, and also other antiquities of the Acropolis, which today are scattered across European Museums. But how did they get there, what were their adventures and who starred in them? The Museum’s archaeologists invite you to discover together with them the answers to all these mysteries and the ‘unknown’, stories of the dispersal of some of the most important works of the Acropolis.
