The Oxford Handbook of Museum Archaeology

This Handbook provides a transnational reference point for critical engagements with the legacies of, and futures for, global archaeological collections. It challenges the common misconception that museum archaeology is simply a set of procedures for managing and exhibiting assemblages. Instead, this volume advances museum archaeology as an area of reflexive research and practice addressing the critical issues of what gets prioritized by and researched in museums, by whom, how, and why. Through twenty-eight chapters, authors problematize and suggest new ways of thinking about historic, contemporary, and future relationships between archaeological fieldwork and museums, as well as the array of institutional and cultural paradigms through which archaeological enquiries are mediated. Case studies embrace not just archaeological finds, but also archival field notes, photographic media, archaeological samples, and replicas. Throughout, museum activities are put into dialogue with other aspects of archaeological practice, with the aim of situating museum work within a more holistic archaeology that does not privilege excavation or field survey above other aspects of disciplinary engagement. These concerns will be grounded in the realities of museums internationally, including Latin America, Africa, Asia, Oceania, North America, and Europe. In so doing, the common heritage sector refrain 'best practice' is not assumed to solely emanate from developed countries or European philosophies, but instead is considered as emerging from and accommodated within local concerns and diverse museum cultures.

World Heritage Sites are among the most emblematic tourism destinations and attractions, facing numerous challenges due to an ever increasing tourism activity and related development issues. This Conference was held as part of a strategic collaboration between UNWTO and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre in order to address key tourism policy and management issues, such as coordination between heritage management and tourism organisations, extending benefits to local communities, reducing tourism congestion and environmental impacts, increasing site financing and enhancing the interpretation and communication of heritage values through tourism. This report summarizes the rich exchange of experience from the Conference, including the overall conclusions, expert presentations, a range of case studies across the Asia region, as well the results of field exercises and working group discussions analysing the Mount Huangshan National Park and Hongcun-Xidi Ancient Villages, illustrating how World Heritage Sites can be integrated into broader regional and destination-level tourism management processes.
