Preservation is a field involved with the interpretation and conservation of historic sites, as well as with their renovation and adaptive use. An interdisciplinary approach to the investigation of buildings and landscapes, which addresses the complexity of material culture, has been adopted by the faculty of this Historic Preservation program at the University of Kentucky.
