Heritage, from local to global

People use the past to define who they are. But heritage is also a major global industry, bringing tourists and revenue to many regions, and forming a significant part of the ways in which places and countries present themselves to the world.

Our expertise on regional and national heritage ranges from supporting community archaeology groups in the UK to working with museums across Europe, Asia and Africa, to advising UNESCO on the significance of sites from around the world. Through it, we help people connect with their past, and we bring tangible benefits to local communities.
