World Heritage Conversations
What makes Edinburgh distinctive and how does it compare with other World Heritage cities?
These were the issues addressed by Professor Herb Stovel, one of the world’s leading authorities on conservation matters, in discussion with the EWH Chairman Professor Charles McKean.
In 1995 Professor Stovel completed an evaluation of the city which led to the inscription of the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In Edinburgh for a brief visit, he was persuaded to spend some time sharing his experience of Edinburgh and placing it in a world wide context.
