I know I promised a lengthy ramble covering ‘Adaptive Reuse of Historic Property’ as my next post, but after a recent visit to York, and with my interpretation radar still in place, I felt inclined to comment on my visit. Yes, this may well be another of my heritage ramblings, but one that I feel is justified!
So here we are at part two of this epic post on the subject of interpretation. I apologise to my readers for the length of this instalment, but as it is part of my MA studies, together with the nature of the content, it needs to be delivered in one go! I shall attempt to guide you, as briefly as possible, through my undercover interpretation manoeuvres. I hope you enjoy my ramblings!
The subject of interpretation has no boundaries, one could write a piece every day for months and still not cover everything one wanted to say. In order to prevent the reader from becoming drained in attempting this marathon read, I decided to split the post into two parts. Part one contains a brief insight into the subject of interpretation and my own analysis on the topic. I guess that would read as my interpretation of interpretation!
I am often asked to clarify my obsession with heritage design and the preservation of the historic built environment. My swift response is always the same “Do you have a couple of days to spare?”
