With this as a foundation the antiquarians established a kind of interpretative supremacy and they started to consider the popular conceptions of ancient monuments as unlearned speculation. This created a split between antiquarian authorities and the general public, which still exists. Today, however, there is gradual recognition that all meanings that have been ascribed to ancient monuments contribute to their cultural value.
