1 Case studies
The first case study in this course, ‘Battlefields as heritage sites’ by Mary-Catherine Garden, involves public memories of two significant historical events, the battles of Bannockburn and Culloden. They have helped to forge national consciousness in Scotland but have little visible archaeological evidence to inform the viewer. Intangible heritage, linked to a physical site, presents problems of its own.
The second study examines the old and new towns of Edinburgh, its designation as a World Heritage Site and how Edinburgh is managed as a heritage site.
