The past has disappeared but history remains

a year ago

Episode Notes

HEADLINE: Notre Dame Burns to the Ground! Wait, no it didn’t, it’s made primarily of stone… The Notre Dame du Paris fire of April 2019 served as a reminder that history is not the past, but rather a preservation of the inquiry into the people, objects, and views of the past – and that even an object as seemingly transcendent of history as a cathedral are still in constant conflict with time and change. In this episode, Ken and Glen discuss what history means in a preservation context, and the challenges of what to preserve and how.
