Places That Count

Traditional Cultural Properties in Cultural Resource Management

Thomas F. King

Hardback
Paperback
eBook
Places That Count offers professionals within the field of cultural resource management (CRM) valuable practical advice on dealing with traditional cultural properties (TCPs). Responsible for coining the term to describe places of community-based cultural importance, Thomas King now revisits this subject to instruct readers in TCP site identification, documentation, and management. With more than 30 years of experience at working with communities on such sites, he identifies common issues of contention and methods of resolving them through consultation and other means. Through the extensive use of examples, from urban ghettos to Polynesian ponds to Mount Shasta, TCPs are shown not to be limited simply to American Indian burial and religious sites, but include a wide array of valued locations and landscapes—the United States and worldwide. This is a must-read for anyone involved in historical preservation, cultural resource management, or community development. « less more »

Places that Count aims to help members of the heritage preservation community understand and recognize traditional cultural places in all their kaleidoscopic and culturally variegated forms. This volume is an elegant and eloquent presentation of preservation laws and regulations, coupled with King's philosophical ruminations about how they might have been, and might yet be, better used in the interests of everyone concerned with historic preservation of places and the multiplicity of meanings attached thereto. King knows preservation laws and regulations perhaps better than any one in the country, and is keenly aware that, in the end, both are matters of (often contested) interpretation. We would do well, in the interests of heritage preservation in general and traditional cultural places in particular, to listen to and act upon—what he has to tell us.
