Abstract

Touristic activities at archaeological sites are often referred to as ‘archaeotourism’, but what exactly does this mean? In this paper the particularities of archaeological tourism will be defined in comparison to heritage or cultural tourism and we will argue that a better understanding and acknowledgement of the particularities of archaeological tourism will benefit the effectiveness of tourism management. We aim to build up a basic understanding of archaeology in relation to tourism because we believe this knowledge could be valuable to management plans for archaeological sites that are considered for touristic activity. We will specifically be speaking about the ‘sites with little or no visible remains’ as opposed to monumental archaeology.
