Sammanfattning (abstract):
Within the area of Western Sweden there are about 100 000 known cultural heritage sites. Some of these sites are well known tourist attractions, but most of the sites are fairly unknown, small sites known to archaeologists and particularly interested people. My doctoral thesis, which this paper is based on, investigates what recourses and possibilities sites like this might offer to present society. Who actually visits and uses small cultural heritage sites is a rather unknown and poorly investigated subject. Through the case studies conducted in the thesis a varied kind of use that might be unknown to the authorities, was revealed. Topics to be discussed are for example: who owns the past, who makes interpretations in the landscape, what is knowledge and lifelong learning? Different paths, roads and traces are used as a metaphor investigating in which way cultural heritage sites might offer a resource and access to present society. For example The trace of experience discusses relationships between popular culture and archaeology including Contemporary Archaeology. The Healthy Path looks into the coherence between cultural heritage and issues of health. The path of the young children presents some examples where kindergartens have been involved in matters of cultural heritage. The school road leads on to how archaeology could be used in different ways in schools today. An overall theme is interpretation.
