5-The Parthenon

These links all apply to that wonderful buidling that we saw in our last HW assignment - "The Parthenon". Well , here is the amazing replica of the Parthenon in Nashville Tennessee. Check out the Wikipedia article... the images are great here as well.
With the Olympics just finishing in China, I've included a report from NBC news back in 2004 when the Olympics were in Athens, Greece. This story is about the daunting task of fixing the Parthenon that you just analyzed in your last HW assignment. Not only is there the seemingly impossible task of reconstructing these ruins, but what about getting the archeological items back to the country they came from. After watching this video I would like to know who do you think should own historical pieces from antiquity?
