Guidance on Heritage Assessment

Council of Europe Technical Co-operation and Consultancy Programme, Strasbourg, 2005, 91pp., 10 / 15 $ + 10% postage, ISBN: 92-871-5825-8

The guidance in this book derives from the experience acquired during the implementation of the joint Council of Europe and European Commission Integrated Rehabilitation Project Plan / Survey of the Architectural and Archaeological Heritage directed towards the countries of South East Europe.

In the course of the gathering and compilation of information on the heritage in the Balkans, it became apparent that the approach and the method implemented not only presented a generic opportunity but also provided a specific analytical tool to create checklists which could be used for comparable heritage assessments in other countries and in other circumstances. Concepts and principles are therefore presented in the form of methodological guidance for integrated conservation and the sustainable use of the heritage, helping to devise new European standards and to uphold the democratic principles promoted by the Council of Europe.
