    Preserving place a cultural mapping exercise

    • Creating the Map Tool: METHOD

    • What is the best way to identify “routes”

    • What is the best way to represent this “traffic”?

    • Identifying the ‘routes’ to map, via a range of cross- disciplinary cultural taxonomies.

    • Data collection: questionnaires, interviews.

    • Qualitative evaluation. Nvivo software analysis.

    • How to describe and present the routes? The core methodology centred on will be the idea of ‘mapping’, as a cartographical metaphor.

    • Impact testing and creating a legacy for 3 existing groups; with the Paston Heritage Society, Pathways to History Collective and tbc.

    • The map will also be evaluated by 3 lecturers (each from different disciplines) for its academic impact.
