Interpreting Our Heritage (4th Edition)


Interpreting Our Heritage (4th Edition)

The latest edition of the seminal work by the first individual to professionally define the art of interpretation. Based on his distinction between interpretation and the communication of factual information, Freeman Tilden outlines the basic principles that transform ordinary programs into awe-inspiring experiences for the visiting public. Core tenets include making presentations relevant to the visitor’s experience, and provoking rather than instructing the visitor. Tilden contends that a presentation should not merely make the experience enjoyable, but should also arouse the visitors’ curiosity, enhance their sense of wonder, and awaken their desire to protect their heritage.
