RESEARCH AND HISTORY
Delving into, understanding and assessing cultural heritage
Deft and wide-ranging historical research and analysis is a critical ingredient in successful heritage management. Touring the Past takes advantage of a breadth of research experience, familiarity with private and public archives and extensive knowledge of Australian history to prepare rigorous Historical Assessments for an array of heritage purposes.
In particular, we are adept at preparing comprehensive and evidence-based Statements of Significance that accurately breakdown the elements of value at a heritage place; enabling you to understand why a site was listed and providing the necessary basis from which change can be planned and impact assessed.
We also put our historical expertise to work in the realm of commissioned history. We can produce books, brochures, website content, or anything in between, to harness the history of your house, business or organisation.
