Vandalism at the Citadel

Archaelogical vandalism is taking place at the Citadel. This is a tourism centre being built on top of one of our national heritage sites with bulldozers digging ditches and holes. I gather there will also be an area for tourist coaches.

There seems to be a school of thought that all our archaeological sites need tourist centres. I would have thought it was more important to protect and preserve these places and leave them to be excavated in peace without building on our precious history. But all that we seem to be looking at is development at the price of culture. Please read a previous blog on this site on this particular subject by J. T
