Example text

This role primarily relates to the notion that the ground where people died is deemed as somehow sacred and should therefore be revered, respected and used as a place for remembrance. This function tends to be much stronger in other countries, particularly in relation to some sites of the American Civil War, many World War I battlefields in Belgium and France, or even the Battle of 1 This not to say that these more emotive arguments are not unimportant as the objection by the Battlefield Trust to English Heritage’s proposal to expand the café facilities at Battle Abbey illustrate, whereby it was deemed as insensitive to build the café on the actual battlefield itself where people had (possibly) died (the media certainly like the more emotive, provocative headlines).

While the modes of planning normally adhered to here are more subject to ‘top down’ processes than is common in the western democracies, the chapter provides evidence of how participation in the benefits being created by these developments is evident among the rural lower income groups, and at least some of these gains are directly attributable to tourism. Each of the chapters that form this ‘act’ is to a large extent based on a detached, scientific orientation. The stance is that of the researcher observing and using their frameworks of expertise to offer an interpretation of what is being offered.

Sites visited by past participants may well have roles as being memorials to the recent dead being honoured by those who knew them. The example of the USS Yorktown discussed later in this book is one such example. Such sites speak at a strong emotional level to visitors who have shared sets of reference and experiences, and what must be left unstated because visitors are able to provide their own inputs of meaning. But, as again demonstrated by the Yorktown example, passing time and the death of survivors mean that subsequent generations have different needs to both recall the nature of the past and the meanings for their present periods.
