Which cultural objects, tangible and intangible, we designate as “heritage” and deem deserving of “conservation”, may depend on our interpretations of history, or by our perspectives on what is important in history. Views of history change over time, as does the priority given to different types of cultural heritage for emphasis in conservation (and occasionally purposeful neglect or destruction). How has the relationship between perspectives on history and the cultural heritage conservation agenda played out in Thailand over the decades?
