Tim Williams. Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London & Editor-in-Chief of Conservation and Management of Archaeological Sites. Background in urban archaeology; worked for Museum of London Department of Urban Archaeology and English Heritage, before joining UCL in 2002 as Senior Lecturer in Archaeological Site Management. Major projects in Beirut & Turkmenistan. Member of ICAHM and author of ICOMOS Silk Roads thematic study (2014).
How archaeological resources are used in the 21st century is an important concern, at both local and international levels. This is not simple an issue of stewardship, but needs to recognise conflicting interests in the value and use of heritage, including archaeological research, conservation, identity building, and tourism. The lecture explores different approaches to valuing heritage, community and interest groups involvement, conservation, presentation, and the influence of any interventions on contemporary perceptions of the past. These issues are illustrated with case studies drawn from along the Silk Roads, including a number of sites in Turkey.
