In a world where cities are ever increasing in size and significance, how can urban archaeology, heritage and development be reconciled?

This international conference on ‘The Conservation of Historic Urban Landscapes and Sustainable Development’ brings together heritage practitioners, urban planners, architects, cultural policy experts and archaeologists in order to explore this very question. The principle focus is on integrating policies and practices of conservation into the wider goals of urban development with full respect of related environmental, social and cultural values and concerns.

In taking this holistic approach that brings together both theory and application across a variety of disciplines, this conference considers how actual policies might be successfully implemented – particularly the 2011 UNESCO Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape – in contemporary cities around the globe.
