It is said that during the 1970s a new museum was opened somewhere in Britain every fortnight; the number of heritage centres, preserved industrial sites, town trails and historic houses open to the public proliferated because they provided a semblance of solidity in an era when our landscapes and townscapes were rapidly changing. Getting Yesterday Right: Interpreting the Identity of Wales examines the growth of historically orientated institutions in Wales. The preservation, conservation and interpretation of historical sites, buildings and artefacts are of great importance, but has the conservation movement and our preoccupation with the past gone too far? Are we attempting to preserve too much without giving enough thought to the lasting value of the things preserved? These are just some of the questions raised in this new edition of a classic text.
