Overview

Practical, inspiring and instructive, Education and the Historic Environment emphasizes the contribution to both education and heritage that results from a positive relationship between the two disciplines.

Education and the Historic Environment examines evidence, case studies and chapters from a wide cross section of the heritage sector and:

  • argues for the value of using the physical remains of the past
  • shows how and where the historic environment can be used to fit into and enhance learning
  • examines how guidelines are reinforced
  • looks at how physical heritage can not only be used to teach obvious subjects such as history, but are also useful across the curriculum, from literacy and numeracy to citizenship.

Teachers at all levels, and students, academics and professionals in archaeology and heritage management, will all be able to use the case studies to reform and enhance their work.
