Comments

At the concluding session of the symbosium held in Rhodes on the 1st-3rd September 2005, we pledged that the proceedings would be published less than one year after the event. we are gratified that this has been possible, thanks mainly to the prompt submission of the papers by all participants. The topic of the Rhodes symposium is huge and we have certainly not exhausted it with our few communications. But we have made a start and hope that others will organize similar conferences. We inevitably put the accent on the Greek islands and Cyprus, but other island regions face equally acute problems of preservation and presentation of their cultural and natural heritage. We have in mind the islands of the Central Mediterranean and hope that the appropriate authorities will soon plan a similar symposium which will also include the Western Mediterranean. Governments as well as civic society are becoming more and more conscious of the importance of heritage, and we all have a duty to create awareness and also advise those responsible for this preservation and prsentation.
