Heritage and Identity: Shaping the Nations of the North: Papers presented at the Tobert Gordon University Heritage Convention 2001
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 2002; 1873394551 / 9781873394557; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; Brand New; 
Was the shaping of nation states in Northern Europe governed by military might, or by Christian and democratic ideals? How has trade and cross-cultural exchange between Scandinavia and the British Isles shaped our historic identities, and what about the impact of global politics and marketing in recent times? These are some of the questions explored by the contributors in the context of forces that shape national identities today. Their analysis highlights the need for historical awareness when developing future cultural policy, brand profiles and marketing strategies. Looking back, Jesse Byock tells how democracy was first embraced in the north by the early settlers of Iceland, Bjørn Myhre delves into the unpredictability of historical interpretation, Edward Cowan discusses the role of ‘battles and beddings’ in relations across the North Sea, John Purkis writes about William Morris’ fascination with Nordic culture, Stephen Harrison presents the ‘winning ways’ of product development and marketing by Manx National Heritage, whilst Chris Powell looks at ‘Cool Britannia’ today and Simon Anholt at national branding strategies. An inspirational book that sheds new light on old subjects, equally relevant for both public and private sector policy makers alike. Contents: Foreword Thor Heyerdahl Acknowledgements William Stevely and Knut Pihl Introduction Magnus Fladmark The Icelandic Althing Jesse Byock The significance of Borre Bjørn Myhre An open mind on Snorre Thor Heyerdahl Odin who and from where?

In Search of Heritage as Pilgrim or Tourist?: Papers presented at the Tobert Gordon University Heritage Convention 1998
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 1998; 1873394241 / 9781873394243; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; Brand New; 
The intriguing hypothesis of this volume is that the medieval pilgrim industry was the start of modern tourism. Although triggered by religious motivation, it is argued that pilgrims were equally driven by a desire for adventure, discovery and cultural enrichment. The authors confirm that we can learn much from studying the past, both about the motivation for travel and about how to attract visitors. In a provocative paper, Professor Dean MacCannell of California argues that we are today turning attractions of authentic heritage into ‘minor places’ by allowing them to be supplanted by commercial ‘dreamworks’ designed to seduce the tourist and line the pockets of remote corporations. Like the other contributors, he deals with issues of profound interest to policy makers and managers in public agencies, the tourism industry, museums, galleries, at cultural venues, historic and outdoor sites, and to those in consultancy and education. Contents: Foreword Thor Heyerdahl How it all Started – Early Routes of Merchants and Soldiers Anne Mustoe In Search of Holy Places – Then and Now John Wilkinson The Apostle of Scotland – Is it Ninian or Columba?
