Public Exposure: For Better and For Worse
What is the concrete, visible, day-to-day impact on sites and artefacts of the increasing influx of cultural tourists? Can a proper equilibrium be found that limits damage while at the same time preserving the integrity of the heritage? Two experienced professionals share their views on the ups and downs of public exposure: Racheli Merhav is chief landscape architect at the Israel National Parks Authority since 1990. Prior to that she was director of the Central Region in Landscape Architecture for the Jewish National Fund in Israel until 1983 when she left to complete a Master’s degree in public administration at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Anne E. Killebrew completed her doctoral degree in archaeology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and is currently lecturer in archaeology at the University of Haifa. She has been involved in numerous excavations and projects throughout Israel, including the reconstruction and interpretation of the ancient Qasrin village. She is currently the project director for the public presentation of the biblical site of Megiddo.
