In the Parthenon Marbles talks saga this week, BM officials were claiming the marbles were 'removed from the rubble':

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10847609/Elgin-Marbles-not-hacked-Parthenon-rescued-rubble-British-Museum-says.html

https://greekreporter.com/2022/05/23/greece-clash-british-museum-over-parthenon-marbles/

... which the Greek side rejected, of course:

https://www.ekathimerini.com/news/1185051/mendoni-rejects-claim-parthenon-sculptures-retrieved-from-the-rubble/
https://greekherald.com.au/news/greece-rebuts-british-museum-claim-that-parthenon-marbles-removed-from-rubble/

https://www.artnews.com/art-news/news/greece-parthenon-elgin-marbles-british-museum-1234629710/

... in case you missed the UNESCO resolution calling on Greece and the UK to resolve the issue:

https://news.gtp.gr/2022/05/23/unesco-committee-calls-on-greece-uk-to-resolve-parthenon-marbles-issue/
https://greekreporter.com/2022/05/25/uk-unesco-parthenon-marbles/

... and reports that the BM had no intention of talking:

https://www.ekathimerini.com/news/1184986/british-museum-insists-on-right-of-ownership/
https://www.thenationalherald.com/talks-british-museum-wont-give-up-parthenon-marbles/

https://www.thenationalherald.com/british-museum-offers-greece-only-loan-of-stolen-parthenon-marbles/

... which the Greek side suggested was due to a lack of information on the BM's part:

https://www.ekathimerini.com/news/1185256/british-museums-denial-of-talks-over-parthenon-marbles-points-to-lack-of-information/

... and the Greek side pointed out that the BM has over 100 000 Greek artifacts not on display:

https://greekreporter.com/2022/05/24/over-100000-greek-artefacts-stored-underground-british-museum/

... while 'deliberation dates' are being sought via diplomatic channels:

https://www.thenationalherald.com/mendoni-deliberation-dates-between-greece-and-uk-on-parthenon-marbles-through-diplomatic-channels/

Some general pondering of the issue:

https://www.euronews.com/culture/2022/05/25/why-britain-should-want-to-return-the-parthenon-marbles-argued-by-a-professor-of-aegean-hi

... and the dailies reinforce their positions on th eissue:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/05/28/british-didnt-plunder-antiquities-like-elgin-marbles-rescued/

news of archaeological finds, historical research and the like.
Various on-line news and magazine sources are scoured for news of
the 'ancient world' (broadly construed: practically anything relating
to archaeology or history up to a century or so ago is fair
game) and every Sunday they are delivered to your mailbox free of
charge!
