All Americans , without exception, that I have taken to any ancient site...have been nothing short of reverential to the site....whether it is as old as Cissbury...or as "modern" as the Box Hill Napoleonic fort...as well as being the most litter aware people I have ever had the privilege to act as a "tourist guide" for.
I won't get into the defence or attack on Capitalism....but guests of mine are always amazed that there are incredible historic sites and museums in this country which you can visit and touch without paying a penny(I know there are also some which cost a fortune to get within 50 yards of) and are always willing to put into a voluntary collection box(when available) without prompting to contribute to any upkeep. The thought of daubing with paint or peeing up against these sites would be alien, if not abhorrent to Americans.
