Linking Communities to Historic Environments: A research review summary


Resource authors: Alex Hale
Project: Linking communities to historic environments

The Linking Communities to Historic Environments (LCHE) research review assessed the broad range of projects and approaches that state-related organisations and civil society heritage bodies apply to engaging people with the historic environment. The review began with an expert advisory panel meeting, followed by a collaborative workshop between panel members, historic environment sector professionals who undertake engagement programmes, and participants who take part in engagement projects (see Appendix 1 for a list of contributors and notes). Two additional internal workshops were held at the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS), to gather experiences and information from staff. The fourth and final element has been the writing of a discussion paper, based on a review of the literature and the assessment of engagement examples, including six case studies.
