This is an interesting subject ...

I think we need balance here as to touch and climb and feel is as much a way to engage as to look and contemplate... particularly for children and the young (I am old enough to have been able to have climbed all over stone henge as a child this had a profound effect on me my children have never been able to do this) I worry that if we are TOO precious if we make these site TOO distant? we just create a barrier to engagement with our history and culture...

BUT.. totally agree re litter and disrespectful behavior eg the story about tourists urinating inside a burial mound... shocking
