9 Access to the Historical Environment: Meetings the Needs of Disabled People

Lisa Foster; Foreword By Patrick Nuttgens

Donhead Publishing Ltd, Dorset, UK, 1997, 1-873394-18-7 / 9781873394182, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, 20.5 x 22.5 Cm Charles Glen 
Access for disabled people in historic settings is more than just a temporary ramp over the front steps for a wheelchair user. It is a commitment to create integrated use and enjoyment of historic monuments for everyone, including people with mobility or sensory impairments, older people, parents with small children, or those temporarily disabled as a result of illness or injury. This book examines flexible and pragmatic solutions to improve circulation in buildings by overcoming level changes, addition of handrails and other facilities which achieve the basic goal of dignified access, and which protect a building’s special architectural character. It features practical guidelines and illustrated case study material, with examples of how to improve access in different types of historic buildings including Georgian, and neo-classical buildings, historic monuments, country houses, gardens and landscapes. Contents: Foreword by Patrick Nuttgens v A PATTERN OF CHANGE What is disabled access?; Equal treatment vs. special treatment; Why make any improvement at all?; Conservation guidance v CRITERIA FOR DEVELOPING AN ACCESS STRATEGY The Disability Discrimination Act; Identification and assessment of physical barriers v CIRCULATION STRATEGIES Choosing the right entrance; front entrance solutions; Creating a new public entrance; A change of use; Extensions; Complementary entrances; Portable ramps v DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS Architectural value; Authenticity; Reversibility; New ramps and railings; Pavement ramps; Handrails v VERTICAL CIRCULATION Access considerations; Conservation constraints; Passenger lifts v CULTURAL MONUMENTS Country houses, ruins and landscapes; Circulation strategies; Unroofed monuments and historic landscapes v Appendix; Practical Guidance v Notes v Bibliography v Index.

12 Building Conservation Philosophy (Third Edition)

John Earl

Donhead Publishing Ltd, Dorset, UK, 2003, 1-873394-56-X / 9781873394564, Third Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, 18 Cms x 25 Cms 
Now published by Donhead in association with the College of Estate Management, Reading, this classic work has been re-designed and updated for this third edition to include new material and illustrations. This is a book about ideas rather than techniques. Public thirst for visible evidence of the past is not, as it is often represented, a recent phenomenon. It was already well developed when an overseer of ancient monuments was appointed in sixth-century Rome. But if the desire to preserve aspects of the past is to do more than respond to popular whims and fashions or represent the personal views of ivory-towered scholars and specialists, it needs to have some kind of solid logical basis. Philosophical questions are raised at every turn. On what basis can buildings be singled out as ‘historic buildings? demanding special protection? On what authority can we justify interfering with private property rights in pursuing such protective processes? And how should we judge what is acceptable and unacceptable in the treatment of the buildings we value? In this third, substantially revised edition, the author examines the nature of monuments and the varied motives for preserving them. He traces the history of movements to preserve old buildings and the furious conflicts that have frequently surrounded restoration campaigns. Philosophical problems arising in modern conservation practice, including such controversial issues as ‘skin-deep preservation?and the use of substitute materials, are considered in detail. More space is devoted in this edition to contextual issues. New sections deal with issues of sustainability and the relationship of buildings to the townscape and landscape. The number of illustrations has also been greatly increased. The book is designed especially for students approaching the subject for the first time but may well be found stimulating by practitioners. No easy formulae are offered. What conservators, have to nurture, the author insists, is an inquiring and self-critical frame of mind enabling them to proceed from comprehensive knowledge of the buildings for the time being in their care, via logical argument, to defensible, if not inevitable, solutions. About the author: John Earl, who trained as a building surveyor, has specialised since 1956 in various aspects of building conservation, ranging from physical care and restoration to statutory control, recording and the formulation of planning policies. He worked for many years in the LCC and GLC Historic Buildings Division. In 1986 he became the director of the Theatres Trust, a statutory body responsible for the better protection of theatres for the benefit of the nation. Since 1996 he has been consultant to the Trust and a frequent writer and lecturer on general building conservation and theatre preservation issues. He is author of a number of major conservation plans. This book is the fruit of his early involvement with the RICS post-graduate diploma and the surprising discovery that there was no readily available and accessible text on the philosophy of conservation that could be offered to students. Contents: Foreword by Andrew Saint Author’s Preface and Acknowledgements PART 1: INTRODUCTION Guiding Lights Approach to the Subject PART II: THE NATURE OF MONUMENTS; MOTIVES FOR PRESERVATION Utility The Creation and Preservation of Monuments The Growing Popularity of Preservation PART III: MEANS AND MANNER OF PRESERVATION Control by Legal Process The Practice of Preservation: Historical Background The Practice of Preservation: Philosophy in Action The Practice of Preservation: Grounds for Argument The Practice of Preservation: Contexts Final Thoughts Conclusion Appendices: Chronology (from 1800); The SPAB Manifesto; The Venice Charter;The Burra Charter; The Canadian Code of Ethics; The Philosophical Background to Listing in Britain; Education for Conservation; 'A Permanent Agency' Index Printed Pages: 248 with numerous b/w photographs. 032248

17 Conservation of Ethnographic Objects

A.S. Bisht

Agam Kala Prakashan, Delhi, India, 2012, 8173201315 / 9788173201318, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 19 x 25 Cm 
This book on “ Conservation of Ethnographic Object”, an attempt to make available text book for readers who may have some interest in conservation of cultural heritage especially for the conservation students of all the faculties of the National Museum Institute (A-deemed University) and many others from the various museums, Museology and allied Departments of the country and abroad. Ethnography is a vast subject which covers dance and drama as an intangible heritage. The main emphasis is on the activities, life of the early tribes, life style, their art and crafts, customs, festivals describing the human development from individuals to villages, early cities of countries and continents. Conservation of this vast and varied aspect was really a challenging task which could be dealt by the author here which needed a long working experience. There are not many books on this subject and many more attempts by our young conservators would be a step further in this direction. The ethnographic objects are most difficult to maintain in good condition because of their inherent complex nature as they are food for Bio-deter gins to nurture them. Most of the ethnographic objects are made of various raw materials and therefore, pose a challenge since they have to deal with the individual pieces by detaching them, treating them individually and reassemble them as one object. Many times treatment needed by one part is different than the others. In this book we can find the various aspects such as source, composition, deterioration, conservation and restoration of objects. The restoration of the creation of the Creator is a Noble task in the service of the Almighty as an aim of human life. This book is a sangam of science, spirituality and culture. We should know that all works are God’s work which are done for the humanity since even He has to take a human form for the restoration of human values of Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Non-violence among His creation on mother Earth.

23 Heritage and Identity: Shaping the Nations of the North: Papers presented at the Tobert Gordon University Heritage Convention 2001

J.M. Fladmark (ed.)

Was the shaping of nation states in Northern Europe governed by military might, or by Christian and democratic ideals? How has trade and cross-cultural exchange between Scandinavia and the British Isles shaped our historic identities, and what about the impact of global politics and marketing in recent times? These are some of the questions explored by the contributors in the context of forces that shape national identities today. Their analysis highlights the need for historical awareness when developing future cultural policy, brand profiles and marketing strategies. Looking back, Jesse Byock tells how democracy was first embraced in the north by the early settlers of Iceland, Bjørn Myhre delves into the unpredictability of historical interpretation, Edward Cowan discusses the role of ‘battles and beddings?in relations across the North Sea, John Purkis writes about William Morris?fascination with Nordic culture, Stephen Harrison presents the ‘winning ways?of product development and marketing by Manx National Heritage, whilst Chris Powell looks at ‘Cool Britannia?today and Simon Anholt at national branding strategies. An inspirational book that sheds new light on old subjects, equally relevant for both public and private sector policy makers alike. Contents: Foreword Thor Heyerdahl Acknowledgements William Stevely and Knut Pihl Introduction Magnus Fladmark The Icelandic Althing Jesse Byock The significance of Borre Bjørn Myhre An open mind on Snorre Thor Heyerdahl Odin who and from where?

24 In Search of Heritage as Pilgrim or Tourist?: Papers presented at the Tobert Gordon University Heritage Convention 1998

J.M. Fladmark (ed.)

Donhead Publishing Ltd, Dorset, UK, 1998, 1873394241 / 9781873394243, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, Brand New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The intriguing hypothesis of this volume is that the medieval pilgrim industry was the start of modern tourism. Although triggered by religious motivation, it is argued that pilgrims were equally driven by a desire for adventure, discovery and cultural enrichment. The authors confirm that we can learn much from studying the past, both about the motivation for travel and about how to attract visitors. In a provocative paper, Professor Dean MacCannell of California argues that we are today turning attractions of authentic heritage into ‘minor places?by allowing them to be supplanted by commercial ‘dreamworks?designed to seduce the tourist and line the pockets of remote corporations. Like the other contributors, he deals with issues of profound interest to policy makers and managers in public agencies, the tourism industry, museums, galleries, at cultural venues, historic and outdoor sites, and to those in consultancy and education. Contents: Foreword Thor Heyerdahl How it all Started ?Early Routes of Merchants and Soldiers Anne Mustoe In Search of Holy Places ?Then and Now John Wilkinson The Apostle of Scotland ?Is it Ninian or Columba?

30 Old House Care and Repair

Janet Collings

Donhead Publishing Ltd, Dorset, UK, 2002, 1873394705 / 9781873394700, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, 18 Cms x 25 Cms 
Owners of old houses are often baffled by the confusing advice they receive from their builders, architects or surveyors who may be more familiar with repairing modern buildings than dealing with the issues associated with traditional houses. Old houses generally require a different approach, one, for instance, which takes account of their need to ‘breathe? Modern solutions do not always recognise that need. This book will help owners, builders and all construction professionals make the decisions that are right for old buildings. It illustrates the long term benefits of using more traditional solutions on older houses rather than modern materials like cement based mortars, sealants or impervious paints. It offers practical guidance on: How to get the right professional advice Legal requirements for listed buildings Problems with damp and rot Use of lime mortars, plasters and renders Why old buildings need to breathe Planning applications Trees, outbuildings and gardens Contents: Introduction The nature of old buildings Legal responsibilities of ownership Professional help, money and time-scales What causes old buildings to decay Maintenance, repair and what to avoid Alterations and extensions Preventative measures and wildlife Interiors and their care Surrounding an old house Trees and gardens Conclusions Appendix ?lime Further reading Websites Index Printed Pages: 208 with numerous b/w photographs. 023135

Over the last decade more than 300 post-war buildings and outdoor sculptures have been added to the statutory list of buildings of special architectural or historic interest. The debate continues as to whether the design rationale, materials used or construction techniques places these buildings outside the scope of normal conservation principles. This book examines the specific management and practical issues posed by our post-war heritage. Contributions form local and international practitioners carrying out pioneering work in their respective areas of expertise cover the most urgent practical problems commonly encountered b;y conservation professionals who have to deal with post-war construction. Part I deals with the historical context and the framework for protection of post-war architecture in Britain. Part II examines structural issues, materials and services, with particular emphasis on diagnosis and assessment of problems and the options for repair. The topics covered include reinforced concrete, plastics, services, clad frame construction and curtain walling. The papers are supported by case studies illustrating recent, successful conservation and repair projects, a summary of the proceedings, sources of information and bibliography.
