Site Management

There are widespread concerns about the conservation and interpretation of archaeological sites, including preservation in-situ, intellectual access to archaeological knowledge, and the display of excavated sites; against a background of rising cultural tourism, pollution, climate change and settlement expansion; and cognisant of issues of sustainable development and the involvement of local communities in decision-making. Reactive intervention is not sufficient to balance the long-term preservation of resources with the contemporary needs of users, and holistic approaches to site management are currently being theorised, problematicised and explored worldwide, across a wide range of site types, and in disparate social, economical and cultural environments. Tim Williams is currently Editor for the international journal Conservation and Management of Archaeological Sites.
