How should Stonehenge be conserved for the future? The modernisation of the Visitors' Centre at Stonehenge has been a battleground, exposing conflicting interests, and revealing the challenges that can lie behind the preservation of heritage sites. This album explores how different values and perceptions of heritage affect how the past is safeguarded, examining the British preoccupation with the built environment. Heritage can impart a sense of national identity and preserve memories and associations, but for whom? This material forms part of The Open University course A180 Heritage, whose heritage?
