Show Summary Details


There are various non-English discourses in Europe. In Europe, there is by no means a universal concept of preserving archaeological heritage resources through management of the historic environment—comprising the material remains of the past—or by any other means, for that matter. That need not surprise us, for there are vast differences among the 48 different countries on the continent. There are a number of reasons for this, relating to historical developments over the past century or so, to academic and political traditions, legal systems, and communication or, rather, language. This chapter examines briefly some of the reasons for differentiation in relation to managing heritage resources because these will surely also be relevant at the global level. In addition, this chapter discusses some recent trends and current issues.
