What is HERITAGE INTERPRETATION? What does HERITAGE INTERPRETATION mean? HERITAGE INTERPRETATION meaning - HERITAGE INTERPRETATION definition - HERITAGE INTERPRETATION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Heritage interpretation refers to all the ways in which information is communicated to visitors to an educational, natural or recreational site, such as a museum, park or science centre. More specifically it is the communication of information about, or the explanation of, the nature, origin, and purpose of historical, natural, or cultural resources, objects, sites and phenomena using personal or non-personal methods. Some international authorities in museology prefer the term mediation for the same concept, following usage in other European languages. Heritage interpretation may be performed at dedicated interpretation centres or at museums, historic sites, parks, art galleries, nature centres, zoos, aquaria, botanical gardens, nature reserves and a host of other heritage sites. Its modalities can be extremely varied and may include guided walks, talks, drama, staffed stations, displays, signs, labels, artwork, brochures, interactives, audio-guides and audio-visual media. The process of developing a structured approach to interpreting these stories, messages and information is called interpretive planning. The thematic approach to heritage interpretation advocated by University of Idaho professor Sam Ham, the National Association for Interpretation, the US National Park Service, and others, is considered best practice. Those who practice this form of interpretation may include rangers, guides, naturalists, actors (who may wear period dress and do reenactments), museum curators, natural and cultural interpretive specialists, interpretation officers, heritage communicators, docents, educators, visitor services staff, interpreters or a host of other titles. The interpretive process is often assisted by new technologies such as visualizing techniques. The goal of interpretation is to improve and enrich the visitor experience by helping site visitors understand the significance of the place they are visiting, and connecting those meanings to visitors' own personal lives. By weaving compelling, thematic stories about environmental phenomena and historical events, interpreters aim to provoke visitors to learn and think about their experiences. Effective interpretation enables the visitors to make associations between the information given and their previous perceptions. According to Moscardo interpretation can produce 'Mindful Visitors' who are carefully processing information and negotiating the meanings of the observed object or intangible element. Interpretation is often used by landowning government agencies and NGOs to promote environmental stewardship of the lands they manage.

PDF: Interpreting Tips for Guides - The TORE Method http://www.beabetterguide.com/interpreting-tips-for-guides-the-tore-method Interpretation tips for tour guides from Dr. Sam Ham, author of ‘Interpretation: Making a Difference on Purpose’ Explore the TORE method for interpreting culture, heritage and the natural world. Cultural, Environmental and Historical Interpretation is something that many guides do on a day to day basis. The curious thing is, not everyone has heard the term ‘interpretation' before! Well, for starters, we are not talking about interpretation between languages or other types of translation services. Those are a skill unto themselves - but not what we are talking about today. We mean the interpretation of culture, the environment and/or history, as done by a guide, educator or tour leader. In other words, think of interpretation as a communication strategy. It’s presenting your information in such a way that it resonates with your audience. National Park Rangers, naturalists, outdoor educators and guides working in eco-tourism, are much more likely to have been exposed to the term ‘interpretation’, but even if you have never heard of ‘interpreting’ before - there is a lot to learn from the people teaching in this space. In this video, we look at some interpretation tips for tour guides and share resources for helping you with your presentations on tour! PLUS, we’ve got a special guest in the video, Sarah Bassendale, one of the lead trainers from the Be a Better Guide Academy. The field of 'thematic interpretation' is an approach originally advocated by Professor William Lewis (University of Vermont) and subsequently developed by Professor Sam H. Ham from the University of Idaho. For this video, we reached out to Dr. Sam Ham in order to get the best advice we could on rocking our interpretive moments. We share some interpretation tips for tour guides, but also explore one of Dr. Ham’s central teachings, the T.O.R.E. model of thematic interpretation. This method is outlined in his recent book, ‘Interpretation: Making a Difference on Purpose’ which you can find on Amazon right here. We’ve also created a PDF Cheat Sheet of the TORE method, which you can use when working on your tours, interpretive moments or presentations.

What is HERITAGE TOURISM? What does HERITAGE TOURISM mean? HERITAGE TOURISM meaning - HERITAGE TOURISM definition - HERITAGE TOURISM explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Cultural heritage tourism (or just heritage tourism or diaspora tourism) is a branch of tourism oriented towards the cultural heritage of the location where tourism is occurring. The National Trust for Historic Preservation in the United States defines heritage tourism as "traveling to experience the places, artifacts and activities that authentically represent the stories and people of the past," and "heritage tourism can include cultural, historic and natural resources." Decolonization and immigration form the major background of much contemporary heritage tourism. Falling travel costs have also made heritage tourism possible for more people. Another possible form involves religious travel or pilgrimages. Many Catholics from around the world come to the Vatican and other sites such as Lourdes or Fátima. Islam commands its followers to take the hajj to Mecca, thus differentiating it somewhat from tourism in the usual sense, though the trip can also be a culturally important event for the pilgrim. Heritage tourism can also be attributed to historical events that have been dramatised to make them more entertaining. For example, a historical tour of a town or city using a theme such as ghosts or Vikings. Heritage tourism focuses on certain historical events, rather than presenting a balanced view of that historical period. Its aim may not always be the presentation of accurate historical facts, as opposed to economically developing the site and surrounding area. As a result, heritage tourism can be seen as a blend of education, entertainment, preservation and profit. Anthropology and Ethnology were two major disciplines interested by the life of aborigines, their customs and political structures. Although, the firsts fieldworkers were not interested in expanding the colonization of main European powers, the fact was that their notes, books and field-work notes were employed by colonial officials to understand the aboriginal mind. From that moment on, anthropology developed a strange fascination for the Other's culture. The concepts of heritage and colonization were inextricably intertwined. Maximiliano Korstanje argues that literature played a vital role in configuring the image of Others in the western imaginary, and this was the rub, aborigines internalized the Western stereotypes about their cultures. In the threshold of history, the meaning of heritage and patrimony accompanied the interests of European elite and their attachment to colonial order. The concept of heritage tourism has been recently criticized by some Latin American anthropologists. These radical voices focus on the ideological discourse that marks some human groups, or ethnicities within heritage tourism while others are excluded. White-elite expands its hegemony by marking Others as different at the time it remains unmarked as normal. Tourism is based on the quest (exploitation) for otherness. By re-considering what is and not heritage tourism consists in an ideological mechanism of discipline exerted by modern nation-states over aboriginal groups. Another problem with heritage tourism is the effect on indigenous peoples whose land and culture is being visited by tourists. If the indigenous people are not a part of the majority, or ruling power in the country, they may not benefit from the tourism as greatly as they should. For example, in Mexico tourism has increased because of the predicted end of the Maya Calendar. However, the indigenous Maya are not benefitting from the increased traffic through the ruins and other cultural landmarks.

What does CULTURAL HERITAGE mean? CULTURAL HERITAGE meaning - CULTURAL HERITAGE definition - CULTURAL HERITAGE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Cultural heritage is the legacy of physical science artifacts and intangible attributes of a group or society that are inherited from past generations, maintained in the present and bestowed for the benefit of future generations. Cultural heritage includes tangible culture (such as buildings, monuments, landscapes, books, works of art, and artifacts), intangible culture (such as folklore, traditions, language, and knowledge), and natural heritage (including culturally significant landscapes, and biodiversity). The deliberate act of keeping cultural heritage from the present for the future is known as preservation (American English) or conservation (British English), though these terms may have more specific or technical meaning in the same contexts in the other dialect. Objects are a part of the study of human history because they provide a concrete basis for ideas, and can validate them. Their preservation demonstrates a recognition of the necessity of the past and of the things that tell its story. In The Past is a Foreign Country, David Lowenthal observes that preserved objects also validate memories. While digital acquisition techniques can provide a technological solution that is able to acquire the shape and the appearance of artifacts with an unprecedented precision in human history, the actuality of the object, as opposed to a reproduction, draws people in and gives them a literal way of touching the past. This unfortunately poses a danger as places and things are damaged by the hands of tourists, the light required to display them, and other risks of making an object known and available. The reality of this risk reinforces the fact that all artifacts are in a constant state of chemical transformation, so that what is considered to be preserved is actually changing – it is never as it once was. Similarly changing is the value each generation may place on the past and on the artifacts that link it to the past. Classical civilizations, and especially the Indian, have attributed supreme importance to the preservation of tradition. Its central idea was that social institutions, scientific knowledge and technological applications need to use a "heritage" as a "resource". Using contemporary language, we could say that ancient Indians considered, as social resources, both economic assets (like natural resources and their exploitation structure) and factors promoting social integration (like institutions for the preservation of knowledge and for the maintenance of civil order). Ethics considered that what had been inherited should not be consumed, but should be handed over, possibly enriched, to successive generations. This was a moral imperative for all, except in the final life stage of sannyasa. What one generation considers "cultural heritage" may be rejected by the next generation, only to be revived by a subsequent generation. Cultural property includes the physical, or "tangible" cultural heritage, such as artworks. These are generally split into two groups of movable and immovable heritage. Immovable heritage includes buildings (which themselves may include installed art such as organs, stained glass windows, and frescos), large industrial installations or other historic places and monuments. Moveable heritage includes books, documents, moveable artworks, machines, clothing, and other artifacts, that are considered worthy of preservation for the future. These include objects significant to the archaeology, architecture, science or technology of a specified culture.

This talk poses that what has been termed an ‘age of migrations’ (MeLa* Project 2015) further sharpens the challenges to current approaches to heritage interpretation. It examines the implications of views of interpretation as communication and meaning-making; of such building blocks of interpretation as themes, and of the overarching goal of interpretation, conservation. Drawing on original research in addition to migration studies and critical heritage studies, the talk discusses the limitations of these current concepts in heritage interpretation and their practical and potentially negative impact on people’s engagement with heritage. The talk argues that current approaches to heritage interpretation based on these concepts are not suited to new understandings of heritage as fluid and creating futures, nor to the conditions of societies characterised by mass migrations. The talk proposes a new approach which fundamentally views interpretation as representation, both as its nature and as its responsibility.

Heritage Interpretation is important in the Promotion and Development of Tourism as it gives meaning to the tourism entities thereby adding value to them. In return they result in the visitor appreciation of the places they visit and the heritage they experience. Well interpreted heritage results in tangible and sustainable tourism. The discussions will highlight how heritage sites and intangible heritage can be presented in ways that the development and promotion of tourism programmes supports sustainable development of cultural tourism in rural areas, particularly by supporting local SMEs. This may require creating new methods of promoting the inter-connected character of the natural, cultural and social value of land and seascapes through sustainable tourism, best achieved through the use of attractive and appealing interpretation styles and principles. In order to assist in the sustainability of all the areas of interest, a conversation on the importance of integration of natural and cultural heritage policies and management in sustainable tourism development needs to be created.

Richard Lewis- Among other outcomes, the archaeology sector aims to engage a wider audience with archaeological data. Increasingly, digital technology is used within the heritage industry to interpret sites, following a global trend towards increased digitisation. Rising sales of portable digital technology and members of social media websites have created a new audience for engagement with issues from politics to humanitarian causes. Accordingly, heritage smartphone apps and social media pages are becoming commonplace. These developments raise concerns regarding how digital technology engages the public. To measure this, several factors must be considered, including the nature of digital engagement strategies, their appropriateness within their settings and effectiveness in achieving their aims. This allows for modification of engagement strategies to better suit the intended audience. This talk examines various digital heritage interpretation techniques for promoting interaction with the public. Based on the studies conducted during my MA dissertation, I will highlight the issues raised through an intensive desk-based analysis of digital heritage interpretation techniques. For example, top-down versus grass-roots methodologies, the utilisation of social media and some concerns raised by so-called 'techno-dystopians' are considered. The points raised here will be analysed in conjunction with a central case study of the Stonehenge Audio Tour app, by English Heritage. Forming the basis for my dissertation research, this study compares site visitors with online social media respondents to understand to what extent the public utilise available digital interpretation tools. The conclusions will examine why digital engagement appears to be low, and what can be done to combat this.

The fact that the ferocity of his friends disfigured body is covered up by a teddy bear reminds me of how Disney likes to slap a happy face on what were previously horrific fairy tales written by the brothers Grimm.

Museum interpretation as an educational process, started developing in Greece since the early 80s, focusing mainly on school groups. Although these last three decades have generated great variety of methodological approaches and innovations, until recently the application of theatre techniques in museum interpretation, the so called "museum theatre," was not widely used. The Museum Education and Research Laboratory of the University of Thessaly (Greece), is implementing a research project on museum education methodologies. In this framework, the research project focuses on the examination of museum theatre's impact through secondary and primary research based mainly on qualitative methodology. Preliminary findings of the examination of selected case studies have shown that museum theatre is a multidimensional tool for the interpretation of Greek museums and heritage sites, able to engage new visitor groups in an attractive way. Most of the techniques used are inspired by educational theatre and drama and include story telling, drama, role playing games, and performance walks. The paper examines the dynamics of museum theatre in heritage interpretation and visitors' culture in Greece. It does so within the current discourse on perspectives and limitations found in museum theatre forms, function and content.

What is HERITAGE SCIENCE? What does HERITAGE SCIENCE mean? HERITAGE SCIENCE meaning - HERITAGE SCIENCE definition - HERITAGE SCIENCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Heritage science is cross-disciplinary scientific research of cultural heritage. It encompasses research enabling access to cultural heritage, its conservation, interpretation and management. The term has become widely used after 2006 when it became increasingly evident that the more traditional terms conservation science or preservation science inadequately reflected the breadth of research into cultural heritage. Heritage scientists in museums, galleries, libraries, archives, universities and research institutions support conservation (often called conservation science), access (e.g. development of new ICT tools), interpretation, including archaeometry and archaeological science (e.g. dating, provenancing, attribution), heritage management (e.g. development of tools and knowledge supporting strategic or environmental management decisions) and wider societal engagement with heritage (e.g. heritage values and ethics). Heritage science is also an excellent vehicle for public engagement with science as well as heritage. Heritage science is seen as "key to the long-term sustainability of heritage: it is about managing change and risk and maximising social, cultural and economic benefit not just today, but in such a way that we can pass on to future generations that which we have inherited." Domains of research, where heritage science makes a particular input were recognised to be museums, galleries, libraries and archives; the built historic environment and archaeology, by the United Kingdom National Heritage Science Strategy documents. The field still requires its literature canon and opinions on whether heritage science is a domain in its own right or a field of research diverge. However, this appears a matter of academic recognition, rather than a matter of research practice. Heritage science is an old field of research: in his Royal Institution Christmas Lecture in 1843, Michael Faraday already pointed out how pollution importantly contributes to book degradation. The following premises appear to be of defining importance: 1. Heritage science is inherently biased, as scientists, by doing research on heritage, contribute to its value: they create and popularize heritage through their research. 2. Heritage science is neither fundamental nor experimental: work with actual heritage objects, building or sites cannot be repeatable because heritage is not an experiment. On the other hand, the scientific method and deductive reasoning is easily applied when working with models and model objects, which heritage scientists often do due to the high value of actual historic objects and consequentially, sampling restrictions. Since the context of heritage is often unknown, there can be any number of variables affecting the heritage system under observation – inductive reasoning is therefore often applied in heritage science. In this aspect, the premise of heritage science comes close to social science. Heritage that is accessible, in its preserved authentic form or as a (digital) reproduction, is a "resource for economic growth, employment and social cohesion". Through improved access, heritage science therefore contributes to well-being. Heritage science is proof that there is no world of 'Two Cultures'. A scientist, researching heritage defies the existence of the divide: there can be no scientific research of heritage without a contribution by humanities research. Heritage science also successfully bridges science and culture, because it provides an attractive vehicle to convey ideas and concepts related to technology and engineering, as well as culture and society. The heritage science career paths are various. Due to the cross-disciplinary nature of heritage science, any academic background is suitable, from formal sciences, natural sciences to social sciences. Most researchers have entered the field by carrying out doctoral research in the field, which is due to the fact that there is currently no undergraduate course in this domain.
