> Context
>       The Institute of Archaeology and Antiquity at the University of Birmingham is an international centre for the study of Ancient History, Classics,  Archaeology, Heritage Management and Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies (http://www.iaa.bham.ac.uk/). The Institute incorporates the Ironbridge Institute (teaching Heritage Management and Industrial Archaeology - http://www.ironbridge.bham.ac.uk/index.htm); Birmingham Archaeology (the Institute> '> s contracting division which carries out archaeology and heritage projects in many parts of Britain and Europe), the HP Visual and Spatial Technology Centre (for research in heritage visualisation, digital imaging and remote sensing) and the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies.   Research and teaching at the IAA covers a geographical area ranging from Iceland to Arabia and a chronological period from the palaeolithic to the present day. The IAA's interdisciplinary structure and diversity is unique and offers the opportunity to pursue innovative research and teaching in a stimulating and supportive environment. 
> Academic Rationale
>       Over the last 30 years there has been growing awareness of the severe pressures that are developing on historic and natural environments around the globe and the impact that these are having on human communities and their ways of life. These pressures will increase rather than diminish and ways to effectively manage change are becoming ever more important. Maintaining the status quo is not possible yet, without strategies to manage change in a sustainable fashion, insensitive and damaging development will not just reduce quality of life but potentially increase social exclusion and economic disadvantage to the detriment of society as a whole.  The academic challenge for heritage and culture is to determine how change is managed and developed to the benefit of society and our cultural heritage.  Economically, tourism and related heritage industries are now major economic factor in both the developed and developing World .  Nationally, governments seek to maximise the return on heritage NGOs, and other organisations involved in managing historic and natural environments are acutely aware that development must be balanced in terms of preservation and access.   These contrasting requirements must be balanced.  To justify future investment in heritage and culture there is a real need to research and develop methodologies that provide tangible and measurable outcomes at both macro and micro economic levels of the real value in economic and social terms of the preservation, loss or development of culturel resources within regional, national and global economies.  
> 
> This post responds to these needs and recognises that the promotion of heritage, whether cultural or natural, can have a direct impact at the micro level on the economic value of an area, can foster social cohesion, and improve community self-image. At the macro level, promotion of heritage directly promotes national or regional identity, preserves and fosters indigenous culture, and sustains tourism and the economic benefits that flow from this industry. As a consequence of these developments, there is a strong need for research to>
