Overview

The fifth volume to appear in the Getty Conservation Institute's Readings in Conservation series, Archaeological Sites: Conservation and Management provides a comprehensive selection of more than seventy texts tracing the development of our understanding of the conservation and management of archaeological sites. The texts cover a broad spectrum of site types, geographical locations, cultural contexts, and methodological approaches and techniques. They range chronologically from early-eighteenth-century memories and late-nineteenth-and early-twentieth-century writings by such pioneers as Heinrich Schliemann and Sir Arthur Evans to a thorough representation of recent scholarship.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“[The editors] have done a commendable job of balancing the technical and the conceptual, the specific and the general, the ideal and the real. And their inclusion of a wide range of voices, a broad range of perspectives, is refreshing indeed.”—Association for Preservation Technology Bulletin
