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 commerc...

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 traditio...
