Archaeological sites around the world are threatened by forces including population growth, development, urbanization, pollution, tourism, vandalism, and looting Site management planning is emerging as a critical element not only for the conservation of this heritage, but also to address issues such as tourism and sustainable development. This book reports on the proceedings of a workshop held in Greece near the ancient site of Corinth, where an international group of professionals gathered to discuss challenges faced by archaeological sites in the Mediterranean and to examine management planning methods that might generate effective conservation strategies. Part One contains papers addressing threats to the archaeological heritage, the concept of heritage values, and a methodology for the conservation and management of archaeological sites. Part Two features case studies where site management plans have been implemented, or where their use is under discussion Cases include Hadrian's Wall, England; Chan Chan, Peru; Masada, Israel; Petra, Jordan; and Corinth, Greece. The book will be of interest to architects, archaeologists, site managers, and all those charged with the conservation and management of the archaeological heritage.
