Parthenon Marbles Move to New Home Phidias supervised the sculptures around the Parthenon during Athens' Golden Age. Christians defaced them in the 6 th Century AD when the building was made a church. In 1687, the Venetian Army shelled the Acropolis and blew up the Parthenon, where the Turks had been storing gunpowder. Then in 1802, the British Lord Elgin had some of the remaining sculptures removed, and since 1816, they've been in the British Museum . Today, a massive moving project began in Athens, where three giant cranes lifted two and a half tons of marble from the Acropolis to an ultra-modern museum at the foot of the hill as part of the effort to get the so-called " Elgin Marbles " back.
