Why Do Historic Places Matter? New report explores the emotional meaning of our heritage

We all know that historic places matter, but this deep dive into the “why”s is useful and exhilarating reading.

Produced by Professor Rebecca Madgin from the Urban Studies Department at the University of Glasgow, this report on emotional attachments to urban heritage is now generally available online, and it’s a great read. The report considers emotional responses, emotional communities and how/why people form attachments to the personalities of historic places.

This report is incredibly useful for any organisation running or aiming to revive a heritage or historic building.

Highly recommended!
