1 Citation (Scopus)

Abstract

The nature of authenticity and the role of originality are perennial subjects of debate in heritage. The role of originality is arguably to anchor the imaginative reconstruction of the past in reality, underpinning affective understandings of the past with accurate physical and sensory evidence. In practice, however, the term "originality" is used rather haphazardly, to mean many different things and many different ways of preserving and interpreting heritage objects.
