Many of Britain's conservation problems are shared by the rest of Europe and answers may, therefore, be found abroad. The aim of this well-presented volume is to address urban conservation issues and to suggest research directions for the future. The introduction examines the relationship between conservation and change in towns and is followed by a number of case studies. The first section discusses the urban heritage of Europe, including Scandinavian and German towns. The second section examines the towns and buildings of Scotland, from archaeological and conservation perspectives. Conservation experiences across Europe are analysed in the third section, including southern Germany, Edinburgh, York, Dublin and Switzerland, and the fourth section looks at the future of Scottish towns. The twenty papers contain numerous diagrams and photographs which illustrate failures and successes in conservation as well as highlighting areas with great potential for future work.
