Description

'Most people want to know about their past, and to see and hear about the evidence of it. They want to learn about past history, and some places are particularly suited to achieving this. Conservation of such places is important to national or local self-identity.' Looking After Heritage Places is a comprehensive reference and sourcebook for anyone managing a heritage place-an Aboriginal site, historic building or any other place of cultural importance to the community. The authors provide a step-by-step guide to: * identifying a heritage place * assessing and documenting the site * implementing conservation practices * visitor management * international and Australian legislation. Looking After Heritage Places offers a wealth of information on preserving and conserving heritage places for administrators, owners, caretakers, volunteers, students and professionals. Pearson and Sullivan survey key issues currently being debated in the field and in the wider community and discuss their implications for heritage management.show more
