This chapter explores an emerging role for the heritage expert or professional, one that may require a fundamental decentering of authority. I briefly outline the process by which the range of accepted forms of heritage in the UK has expanded and then problematize the notion of expertise. Subsequently I explore how issues have emerged in the management of the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape, a World Heritage Site in South Wales. Finally, I explore how more mutually beneficial and inclusive collaborative projects might be better achieved.
