Will Self: has English Heritage ruined Stonehenge?
The summer solstice, King Arthur, the Holy Grail … Stonehenge is supposed to be a site of myths and mystery. But with timed tickets and a £27m visitor centre, does it herald a rampant commercialisation of our heritage?
Stonehenge seems to be a valuable cash cow for the tourist industry, so any history or science interest in it must be careful not to effect it's value as a mystery and source of myths. Any advance in the understanding of it is unlikely to be well received.
