Description

This course, Aberdulais Falls: A case study in Welsh heritage, looks at the Aberdulais Falls in Wales and considers the key issues affecting the decision-making of the bodies which are responsible for looking after our heritage. We examine the heritage debates: who decides what should be preserved from the past as our heritage, who is this heritage for, and how should it be presented and explained?
