Heritage of the North Sea Region
L.M. Green and P.T. Bidwell, editors
Based on papers presented at the Conference held as part of the ‘Kings of the North Sea AD 250-850’ Project, held at South Shields, UK, 2001.
Across Europe, the new century is a time of change in policies for the conservation and interpretation of the historic environment. Some countries are revising their legislation and there is a general trend towards greater emphasis on social inclusion and accessibility. Representatives from the five partner countries of the ‘Kings of the North Sea’ Project met to compare conservation practice across many regions and countries. Their contributions ranged from the philosophy of conservation to the legal and spatial planning frameworks; case studies included the role of professional engineers, the conservation of sensitive townscapes and the interpretation of the urban areas of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site. 2002, 224 pp, hardback.
