Thailand has a long history of cultural development, but the management of cultural resources under a protective framework did not begin until fairly recently. Throughout the history of cultural development, perceptions of the past varied from place to place depending upon influences such as religions, beliefs, and political situations. This chapter examines the historical background of preservation, administration, legislation, and other aspects of the management of cultural resources in Thailand, with the focus on archaeological resources and current protection problems.
