Example text

Editor’s note: This colonial distinction between ‘dead’ and ‘living’ monuments is now renegotiated under the term ‘living heritage’ in modern conservation sciences (compare Warrack in this volume) as well as in anthropological research (compare Luco and Guillou in this volume). In specific circumstances, both criteria may apply to one and the same site (Angkor Wat, see Warrack), a whole ensemble (Angkor Park, see Luco), or a cultural landscape (sacred sites spotted over an ‘ordinary’ landscape, see Guillou).
