Overview

The History of Heritage: The stories behind the people, places and events that have shaped our built heritage.

This story charts the history of our mutual aspiration to preserve and protect the buildings of our shores. The extraordinary lengths with which we have strived to save our heritage, the darkest episodes of humanity when we lost our heritage and how we have through the ages rebuilt or repurposed our architectural legacy for future generations.

Beginning with the Roman occupation through to the present day, the author guides the reader to present how our appreciation of historical buildings has changed throughout the centuries and what challenges may lay ahead.
