Heritage as Community Research explores the nature of contemporary heritage research involving university and community partners. It puts forward a new view of heritage as a process of research and involvement with the past, undertaken with or by communities for whom it is relevant. Rather than just reflecting on existing discourses about heritage, this book derives from community-based research into heritage in which histories are explored through new modes of production: crossing disciplines and sustaining partnerships. The book shows that the process of research itself can be an empowering force by which communities stake a claim in the places they live.
