Conservation is a core value for most archaeological societies. It is highlighted in their codes of ethics, statements of mission, and governance. In recognition of this, the World Archaeological Congress, with the Getty Conservation Institute and a consortium of other conservation organizations, brought together scholars working throughout the globe to discuss vital issues that affect archaeological heritage today.

This volume presents the proceedings of the Conservation Theme at the Congress, held in Washington, D.C., June 22-26, 2003. Among the topics discussed are: Innovative Approaches to Policy and Management of Archaeological Sites; Finding Common Ground: The Role of Stakeholders in Decision Making; Archaeology and Tourism: A Viable Partnership?; Preserving the Cultural Heritage of Iraq and Afghanistan; Archaeology and Conservation in China Today; and Managing Archaeological Sites and Rock Art Sites in Southern Africa.

These proceedings should do much to promote and strengthen the relationship between the disciplines of conservation and archaeology.

Neville Agnew is a principal project specialist at the Getty Conservation Institute. Janet Bridgland is president, Preservation Management Institute.
