The article discusses issues significant to the integrity and standing of the arts in general, namely, the conservation of knowledge and the dangers of selling culture, in response to organization English Heritage's plan to divest itself. The author criticizes the strategy of English Heritage Chairman Jocelyn Stevens of concentrating scarce resources on a few monuments and the plans to privatize ancient monuments. The danger inherent in the English Heritage's proposal, that is its impact on the archeological and historical wealth of England, is tackled.
