dc.description.abstractThe subject of this chapter is the nomination of Kuk for World Heritage listing by UNESCO. It deals with the story up to the point of the site’s acceptance in July 2008. The nomination was not the first time that consideration had been given to the question of long-term conservation at Kuk in the interests of cultural heritage, as distinct from short-term protection in the interests of archaeological research, as discussed in Chapter 24. Previous cases had relied on the possibility of proclaiming a reserve under existing legislation. There were two unsuccessful attempts in the middle of the 1970s, of which Muke (1998: 72) gives some details based on Golson’s files. We discuss a third case of the early 1980s, which is notable because of the circumstances in which it arose and the ways in which it was taken up.
