Abstract

The past two decades have seen globalization, rapid societal change, significant global economic fluctuations, huge increases in tourism, and massive technological innovations. New approaches to the conservation and management of archaeological sites reflect the profession’s response to these conditions, as it considers the complexity of societal context; the range of values and rights involved in heritage decision-making; and technological, scientific, and traditional ways to document and sustain archaeological heritage. Nevertheless, despite recent advances in practice, archaeological sites face increasing challenges from development, climate change, tourism, insufficient management, looting, conflict, and inadequate governmental resources.
