Synopsis: In 1991 the mosque at Ayodhya in India was demolished by Hindu fundamentalists who claim that it stood on the birthplace of a legendary Hindu hero. During recent conflicts in former Yugoslavia, ethnic groups destroyed mosques and churches to eliminate evidence of long-term settlement by other communities. Over successive centuries, however, a single building in Cordoba functioned as a mosque, a church and a synagogue. The Roman Emperor Diocletian's Palace in Split is occupied today by shops and residential apartments. What circumstances have lead to the survival and reinterpretation of some monuments, but the destruction of others?
This work asks whether the idea of world heritage is an essential mechanism for the protection of the world's cultural and natural heritage, or whether it subjugates a diversity of cultural traditions to specifically Western ideas. How far is it acceptable for one group of people to comment upon, or intercede in, the way in which another community treats the remains which it claims as its own? What are the responsibilities of multinational corporations and non-governmental organisations operating in the Developing World? Who actually owns the past: the landowner, indigenous people, the State or humankind?

About the Author: Robert Layton is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Durham. Peter G. Stone is Chief Executive of the World Archaeological Congress and Lecturer in Heritage Studies at the University of Newcastle. Julian Thomas is Chair of Archaeology at the University of Manchester.

Book Description Routledge, London, 2001. Illustrated Boards. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. white titles spine; No. 41 in the 'One World Archaeology' Series; illustrated by b/w. photo's. & drawings; "Can cultural monuments survive ethnic strife? In 1991 the mosque at Ayodhya in India was demolished by Hindu fundamentalists who claim that it stood on the birthplace of a legendary Hindu hero. During recent conflicts in former Yugoslavia, ethnic groups destroyed mosques and churches to eliminate evidence of long-term settlement by other communities. Over successive centuries, however, a single building in Cordoba functioned as a mosque and a church. The Roman Emperor Diocletian's Palace in Split is occupied today by shops and residential apartments. What circumstances have led to the survival and reinterpretation of some monuments, but the destruction of others? The contributors to this timely volume document the threat to archaeological and architectural monuments from ethnic strife, war and commercial exploitation. The protection of monuments and relationships between the public and archaeologists in Europe, Afrrica, Asia and South America are explored. The fate of cultural property in politically volatile areas of Europe, including Northern Ireland and former Yugoslavia, are given substantial coverage. The Ayodhya affair is reassessed and the types of monument most at risk are identified. This work asks whether the idea of world heritage is an essential mechanism for the protection of the world's cultural and natural heritage, or whether it subjugates a diversity of cultural traditions to specifically Western ideas. How far is it acceptable for one group of people to comment upon, or intercede in, the way in which another community treats the remains which it claims as its own? What are the responsibilities of multi-national corporations and non-governmental organizations operating in the Developing World? Who actually owns the past: the landowner, indigenous people, the state or humankind?"; as-new copy apart from small bump to top outer corners; including index - 329 pages.
