KING EDWARD VI CAMP HILL SCHOOL FOR BOYS

CHESTER - 2000

HUMAN GEOGRAPHY
HERITAGE

In this section we will consider a response to the syllabus that requires you to look at the exploitation of a historical city like Chester.

Exploitation could be for profit by entrepreneurs or the Council. It may be exploitation, without a profit motive, using the fabric of the past to educate.An example of an organisation that acts in this way is the National Trust. We visited a National Trust propety at Erddig, near Wrexham on 16/5/00. Photographs of this visit are below.

It is important that you seek to clarify the meanings of PRESERVATION and CONSERVATION with regard to historical sites before you read the information below.
