By Marta de la Torre, Editor

This is the French-language edition of The Conservation of Archaeological Sites in the Mediterranean Region, which reports on the proceedings of an international conference on the conservation of classical sites in the Mediterranean region organized by the GCI and the Getty Museum in May 1995. The book includes chapters presenting management issues at three sites—Piazza Armerina in Sicily, Knossos on Crete, and Ephesus in Turkey—which conference participants visited in order to examine how issues raised at these locales can illuminate the challenges of management and conservation faced by complex heritage sites the world over. Additional chapters discuss such topics as the management of cultural sites, the reconstruction of ancient buildings, and ways of presenting and interpreting sites for today's visitors.
