Heritage Interpretationis an essential guide to present practice and policy concerning issues in Heritage Management. The UK has an international reputation for the excellence of its heritage interpretation. During the 1980's and 1990's the UK developed innovative public presentation of heritage sites in the increasingly competitive cultural tourism market. UK heritage organizations developed ideas pioneered by the US National Park Service in the 1960's and applied these to cultural heritage sites. This volume draws on this accumulated expertise to describe and analyze best practice in heritage interpretation with the UK. The contributors are all responsible for developing best practice in a range of heritage organizations, such as English Heritage, National Trust Historic Scotland, Cadw and National Parks. Looking at subjects from Public Art to 20th Century military remains and from Cathedrals to Urban Heritage, the contributors discuss the bewildering range of interpretive options availableto them and how these can be sensitively and appropriately tailored to specific places and specific audiences.
