This chapter highlights that exhibitions in art museums have a more indirect, though still important, effect. The diverse stakeholders in cultural heritage take various stands both in terms of how this heritage is to be preserved (or not) for the future and in terms of how it is to be interpreted. The concept of a global cultural patrimony has been around for some time now, as can be seen from United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)'s numerous documents addressing the need for education and the protection of cultural resources. Contextual information is not always made easily accessible to the viewer, even when the contexts of displayed objects are known. Cultural resources are irreplaceable and nonrenewable, and as a result archaeologists must continually strive to help people understand why context can say something exciting and astonishing about history. The different nations draw on cultural trajectories that can be traced back to the dawn of urbanization.
