Kenneth Aitchison has joined the Heritage Management Organization as Head of Capability Mapping. He will continue to work as Executive Director of Landward Research Ltd while developing new initiatives with the Heritage Management Organization, the first of which is the Discovering the Archaeologists of Africa initiative. He discusses this on the HMO blog.
The Heritage Management Organization (HERITAGE) was established in November 2008 with the goal of enabling key heritage managers, through targeted training, to independently transform heritage assets from decaying objects of study to dynamic sources of learning, community identity and economic development.
The Heritage Management Organization trains professionals in the management of heritage sites, independently of project specifics. Training practitioners in the essential skills and best practices which define heritage management is at the heart of the HERITAGE mission.
