“As a facilitator working in the heritage sector, this book felt as though it was written for me. Once published it will quickly become my manual and should quickly become a core text for anyone working with heritage, in whatever capacity, at whatever level. This book is a tour de force, taking the reader on a journey into the theory and practice of valuing heritage; it represents for the facilitator a box of delights or a pic ‘n’ mix of games for the heritage manager, designator, funder, fundraiser, educator, regulator, policy-maker to use in their everyday work.” • Jo Robertson, Built Environment Forum Scotland
