However, a better understanding of the values attributed to archaeological heritage by different groups of stakeholders is needed to better respond to the various perspectives on heritage values in heritage preservation and public archaeology projects.

(…) The Romans are declared sacred and everything has to make way for it”. To this farmer, this particular site has a social value, as it is his home territory. He feels attached to the place because his grandfather started a fruit orchard at this location over a hundred years ago. He also values the location for economic reasons, because it is in his interest to maintain a prosperous business. Archaeologists, on the other hand, value it conveys a relation to the past and provides data for research. How can these diverging values and Heritage is a dynamic concept (Frijhoff 2007) and the values attributed to heritage differ from person political ambitions, social ideals, and economic strategies (e.g. Avrami et al. 2000; Duineveld and how people deal with heritage; values strongly shape the decisions that are made in spatial development, policy directions, and heritage preservation. Valuesbased management considers the creation of a dialogue with other stakeholders in cultural and spatial transformations as important, as well as the assessment of all the values attributed to heritage by different stakeholders with an interest in heritage preservation projects (e.g. Jerome 2014; Kolen 2008; Mason 2002; Myers et al. 2010). ideas be united in heritage preservation projects? 2017 | INTER-SECTION | VOL III | p.37 | “Linguistic Landscape Studies” and Archaeology | ASSESSING STAKEHOLDERS’ VALUES AND INTERESTS FOR ARCHAEOLOGICAL PARK MATILO AND CASTELLUM HOGE WOERD, THE NETHERLANDS Eline B.J.
