About the Book
This volume comprises the authoritative work from the International Committee for the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage – the international group dedicated to industrial archaeology and heritage – detailing the latest approaches to the conservation of the global industrial heritage. With contributions from over thirty specialists in archaeology and industrial heritage, Industrial Heritage Re-tooled establishes the first set of comprehensive best practices for the management, conservation, and interpretation of historical industrial sites. This book:-defines the meaning and scope of industrial heritage within an international context;-addresses the identification and conservation of the material remains of industry;-covers subjects as diverse as documentation and recording of industrial heritage, industrial tourism, and the teaching of industrial heritage in museums, schools, and universities.
“This book is a welcome contribution to the field of Industrial Heritage in providing an overview of the state-of-the-art of industrial heritage world-wide, in defining the field, in serving as a guide to best practices, and in setting forth international standards for the recording, documentation, conservation, evaluation and presentation of industrial heritage sites. It is a must read for anyone working in the field, and will prove highly interesting and informative to members of the general public who are curious to know what industrial heritage is all about.” — Robert Passfield, Senior Historian Emeritus, Parks Canada
"As befits the organisation it comes from, the scope of the book is truly international. Based around the 2003 Nizhny Tagil Charter (usefully appended at the end) the book aims to flesh out the doctrines and be a ‘definitive international guide to contemporary best practice’. … It is a book to dip into for advice from some of the best-informed players in industrial heritage for iconicxamples and for best practice, … It is also a key publication for any university reading list with courses that deal with aspects relevant to industrial heritage." — David de Haan, Industrial Archaeology Review
