Preserving Heritage is Good Local Business: Saving Sites with Economic Development

Thursday, Jan 30 12:30p
Penn Museum Philadelphia, PA

Archaeological research has brought few economic benefits to the communities in which sites are located. Communities utilize sites in ways economically superior, including looting and home building. Dr. Lawrence S. Coben, Executive Director, Sustainable Preservation Initiative, argues that only through locally controlled and sustainable economic development can this process be reversed, and only through providing an alternative to these uses can we save much of the world's cultural patrimony.
