The changing social and political context of cultural heritage management is documented from the early days of the 1970s when positivist thinking prevailed, through the impact of cultural relativism in the 1980s, new emphasis of sustainability in the 1990s, and the emergence of instrumentalism as a political philosophy from the turn of the century. Changes in the direction of heritage management visible in overarching legal frameworks at a European level and more specifically in the case of England are considered, especially the expanding definition of heritage to embrace both tangible and intangible dimensions. Shifts in the way value is ascribed to heritage remains illustrates the changing role of heritage management in the context of enhancing the quality of life while the principles of heritage conservation show how instrumentalism impacts on the day-to-day management of the heritage.
