22 Theatre Archaeology?..in search of Shakespeare? The Shakespeare Team are led by the director Greg Doran... Shot documentary style, on and off stage, the successors of Shakespeare's company give us a magical glimpse into how it was done: playing scenes from all Shakespeare's great shows in Tudor Guildhalls, Royal Palaces like Hampton Court, and even in broad daylight, in a surviving intact inn yard in Gloucester, to see what it was like to play in the conditions they did. The Queens men and the Troublesome Raigne of King John, July 2010

24 Heritage: Whats New The idea that knowledge and the use of heritage form part of every citizens right to participate in cultural life as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The need to involve everyone in society in the ongoing process of defining and managing cultural heritage. The need to put people and human values at the centre of an enlarged and cross-disciplinary concept of cultural heritage. (Source: Faro Convention on the Value of Heritage for Society, Council of Europe 2005)

25 Stokes Croft, Bristol I love you for being interested. … To tell the truth, [the week we spent together] was power, truth and hope. You have this big heart in a bigger community and it was good to think that we might actually change the world we live in. Inshallah. (Punk Paul) Case Study #1
