Heritage Counts

Heritage Counts provides trends, insights and data about the heritage sector, highlighting changes and history in the making. This year, Heritage Counts research focuses on carbon in the built historic environment.

Heritage Counts includes:

  • An annual feature report
  • The Historic Environment: An Overview
  • Heritage and the Economy
  • Heritage and Society
  • Heritage and the Environment (new from 2020)
