Abstract

Public heritage is the chosen representation of heritage at a place. The unmanaged heritage is the
private heritage of people’s lives (Howard, 2003).
This paper uses the example of Hadrian’s
Wa
ll to illustrate and develop the concept put forward by Poria et al (2004) that motivation for
visiting heritage sites can be enhanced if the tourist is involved in that experience in a personal
capacity. The unmanaged heritage, or the everyday practices of those who are (not) involved in
heritage tourism of an area are often overlooked. It is proposed here that this notion not only
applies to tourists of a site, but also those involved in the tourism offer. A combination of both
public and private heritage is required for successful management of heritage sites.
