Out in the Air: The Cultural Heritage Site as an Arena for Archaeology, Health, Pedagogy and Fun
Keywords:outdoor education, interpretation, provocation, interdisciplinary, outdoor recreation, landscape
This paper discusses cultural heritage sites and the opportunities these sites may offer when it comes to people's health and well-being. The questions of who visits cultural heritage sites and why are also raised. Some case studies in these matters are presented. Another subject of the paper is the issue of outdoor education and by what means ancient sites can provide an arena for this pedagogical method. In the final part of the paper the author speaks for a type of interpretation that benefits provocation instead of information, with the aim of giving cultural heritage sites a renewed life
