    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.
