Heritage Round-Table

The Heritage Round-Table is made up of a series of extracts from interviews conducted in researching and constructing the Teaching Heritage website. A variety of questions were considered and answered by people dealing with heritage issues from a wide range of perspectives. Some of this discussion relates to questions about specific places and events presented in this website and others are about more general heritage issues.

All the interviews for this website were conducted during the period 1996-1998. The interviews were recorded on location on cassette tapes with a field recorder and may vary greatly in clarity and quality. All the audio interviews are provided here as embedded MP3 files with some transcripts provided.

Some selected responses with transcripts.
