Archaeology and Heritage Management in Europe: Trends and Developments

  • Willem J. H. Willems (a1)

Abstract

The importance of archaeological heritage management in a united Europe has increased in recent years, and the archaeological scene is changing drastically. Causes of this development are, among others, the end of the political division of Europe and the ‘green debate’ with its effects on the way in which the archaeological heritage is being treated. Equally important are the effects of the. Malta Convention and the influence of lawmaking within the EU. This paper discusses recent developments and the need for cooperation at a European level, as well as the various opportunities, tasks and challenges of heritage management in the immediate future.

Zusammenfassung

Archäologische Denkmalpflege als gesellschaftliche Aufgabe wird im vereinten Europa immer wichtiger und die archäologische Landschaft verändert sich tiefgreifend. Ursachen sind u.a. das Ende der politischen Spaltung Europas und die ‘grüne Debatte’ samt ihre Auswirkungen auf den Umgang mit dem archäologischen Erbe. Ebensowichtig ist die Auswirkung der Konvention von Malta und den Einfluß der EU Gesetzgebung. In diesem Beitrag werden die rezente Entwicklungen diskutiert, sowie die Notwendigkeit der Zusammenarbeit auf europäische Ebene und die verschiedene Chancen und Aufgaben der Bodendenkmalpflege in den nächsten Jahren.

L'importance portée à la gestion du patrimoine archéologique au sein d'une Europe unie a augmenté pendant les dernières années et le paysage archéologique est en train de changer d'une manière considérable. Les causes de cette évolution sont, entre autres, la fin de la division politique de l'Europe et le “débat vert” dont les effets se font sentir dans la manière dont on traite le patrimoine archéologique. Les retombées de la Convention de Malte sont aussi très importantes de ce point de vue, ainsi que l'influence des lois passées it l'intérieur de l'union européenne. Cet article porte sur les récents développements, le besoin de coopération au niveau européen, les différentes possibilités pour ce qui est de la gestion du patrimoine ainsi que de son coût dans un futur proche.
