Heritage and Restoration – can the two be congruous?

The popularisation of TV restoration programmes can inspire and horrify. Should we use modern materials in the restoration of our heritage sites? Or, if we have new and better materials to use, should we incorporate these as they are more suited to the way we live? Watch YouTube: Changing Attitudes to Restoration – Ireland: The Arts Past & Present AA100. See also Changing approaches to heritage, available on iTunes U.

Try the short online course: What is heritage? It introduces the concept of heritage and examines its various uses in contemporary society. The unit is an adapted extract from the course Understanding global heritage (AD281) which can be studied as part of an Arts & Humanities degree in the following subjects; History, Humanities with History and Humanities with Art History.
