Heritage and the Economy
The historic environment is intrinsically linked to economic activity, with many economic activities occurring within it, dependent on it, or attracted to it.
The 'Heritage and the Economy' section examines the economics of heritage conservation and presents evidence of how the historic environment contributes to the national economy and local economies.
The evidence presented here includes recent research findings and past seminal pieces, forming part of the heritage sector's rich, multi-dimensional knowledge base. The evidence is presented as bite-sized facts, with links to detailed evidence sources for more technical readers or those needing more specific evidence.
