Vandals, Access to the Past and Protecting Everybody's Heritage

Having a smashing time
And there are those archaeologists that argue for a hands-on 'interaction with the past', without putting objects behind glass (BBC, 'Damage of £10,000 at medieval Sueno's Stone in Forres')
Vandals have caused more than £10,000 worth of damage to glass panels which surround a medieval stone in Moray. Three panels at Sueno's Stone at Forres, between the B9011 and the A96, were broken between Wednesday and Thursday. The early medieval period carved standing stone is more than 20ft tall.
one shudders to think what would have been the results had there not been glass panels there.... How to counter such attitudes in part of a population?
