A villager in Wales has been ordered to pay for the restoration of a 4,500-year-old artwork after he filmed himself destroying it.

The man, who has not been named, excavated the artwork, which is a panel of rock art with cup marks, from its sandstone at Eglwysilan Mountain in Caerphilly. He then filmed himself chipping away at the rock art and destroying it.

The man was arrested and charged with criminal damage. He pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to a 12-month community order, which includes 200 hours of unpaid work. He was also ordered to pay £4,000 in compensation to the local authority, which will be used to restore the artwork.

The artwork is believed to date back to the Bronze Age, making it one of the oldest pieces of rock art in Wales. It is a significant cultural asset and its destruction is a major loss.

The man’s actions have been condemned by archaeologists and heritage experts. They say that his actions are an example of the growing problem of vandalism of archaeological sites.

They are calling for more to be done to protect archaeological sites and to raise awareness of the importance of preserving our cultural heritage.

The case has also highlighted the importance of responsible social media use. The man filmed himself destroying the artwork and then shared the video on social media. This allowed the police to identify him and bring him to justice.

It is important to be aware of the potential consequences of posting videos or photos online. If you see something that you think is illegal or harmful, you should report it to the authorities.

The restoration of the artwork is expected to take several months. The local authority is working with experts to ensure that the artwork is restored as accurately as possible.

The case is a reminder of the importance of protecting our cultural heritage. We must all do our part to ensure that these irreplaceable artifacts are preserved for future generations.tuneshareGoogle it
