Communicating Local: The Role Of Mediated Documents In The Articulation Of Values Within The City Of York (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katrina M Foxton.

Managing the historic environments of cities is a task that continually concerns local authorities and citizens. Currently in the UK, ‘Local Plans’ for the development of cities form as documents which guide archaeologists and developers forward in the ongoing rendering of urban fabrics.

DOCUMENT Citation Only Christopher Eck.
