It's sad to think that a handful of irresponsible people can damage a great link to the past in the name of FUN. In my own area bored young people destroy head stones in cemeteries. Some statues there are hundreds of years old and vary artistic. When caught and asked why , the answer is "Some thing to do!"

:/ geeze.... In my opinion they should restore the site. I mean yeah it would be altering invaluable historic sites but at the same time they could poor sand over the disturbed areas, and straigten out the graffiti and what not. And like you said to --MORE SECURITY!
