This booklet was created as part of a European cooperation programme called NEARCH, supported by the European Commission. The NEARCH partnership is designed to create new scenarios for archaeology and heritage; to foster the relationship between contemporary European societies and our realm of expertise. It aims to understand what citizens think and expect of their relation with heritage; involve communities in our processes, our decisions; and understand what it means for us as professionals. We are trying to create contexts to rethink our discipline and open our field to more collective and inclusive practices
