Archaeology and TourismThe book


The proceedings of the first international conference on "Archaeology and Tourism", organised by the ArchaeoTourism association, were published in 2013. The book contains the articles written by the speakers present at the conference, from both the fields of archaeology and tourism. For the first time in Switzerland, they discussed ways of setting up collaborations and synergies in the field of heritage tourism. The results of the four participatory workshops held during this conference were also the subject of articles presenting practical ideas for implementing attractive archaeological tourism that respects the conservation and protection of the remains. This meeting was organised with the support of the Swiss Federal Office of Culture (FOC), Switzerland Tourism, the Swiss Tourism Federation and local partners such as Vivat and the town of Thun.
