Abstract (in English)

One of the central issues identified through the study was the disturbing size of the gap between professional and public knowledge about the protection and the control of settings and monuments. This study has revealed that the preservation knowledge gap is a growing threat to conservation practice, which is most likely to have broader implications for heritage site preservation worldwide.
