Abstract and Keywords
This article uses the fundamental notions of place and place-making, and explores both within the context of heritage places. Although both the established sites and the ‘new’ places are discussed, a number of developing trends argue for a priority on the ‘new’ places. Among these is the scale of change that has lately taken place in the way in which new museums are designed and older museums refitted, and in the redrawing of the landscape as a result of urban regeneration and modernization. All of these have had an effect on the way in which individuals use, understand, and negotiate these places of the past. Understanding how this works in the context of these new heritage spaces has yet to find a home within the heritage and museums literature.
