Cultural resource management, a View from Port Arthur Historic Site


The following is a rewritten version of a paper that was presented at the Second Annual Conference of the Australian Society for Historical Archaeology, held in Sydney in October 1982. In this paper Brian Egloff, of the Tasmanian National Parks and Wildlife Service, examines the subject of cultural resource management, in the light of his experiences as manager of the Port Arthur Conservation Project. He demonstrates that cultural resource management involves collaboration between a number of disciplines, of which archaeology is only one. Participants in conservation projects like that at Port Arthur need special skills and experience that differ from those of their academic colleagues. They also need to work within a management framework that will vary from project to project and should indeed be specially designed to suit each individual case.
