Few thoughts about Public interest in heritage

•Various late-modern accelerations and shifts in people’s relationship with the past—-a growth in the perception of vulnerability and uncertainty

•Shifting economic and demographic process of deindustrialisation leading to widespread redundancy of many forms of building and sites

•The development of ‘experience’ as a marketable commodity

•The growth of domestic and international leisure travel and the accompanying restructuring of the tourist gaze

•The diversification and segmentation of heritage to make it marketable to more varied audiences

•The widespread commercialisation of the past
