The proceedings of the Maritime Cultural Landscape Symposium were recently published by the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training. Ben Ford’s concluding remarks for the symposium are included.

The Maritime Cultural Landscape Symposium was sponsored by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Wisconsin Historical Society, and the National Park Service and brought together scholars and practitioners from across the country to discuss the application of a maritime cultural landscape approach to managing federal lands and cultural resources. The symposium was held October 14–15, 2017, at the University of Wisconsin.

The papers from the symposium are now available in a published form so that a wider audience can benefit from participants’ expertise.

Ford presented the concluding remarks for the symposium. His remarks synthesized the previous two days of presentation, placed them in the context of cultural resource management, and provided some thoughts on a productive way forward.
