Emergence of industrial heritage in Finnish history culture

The value of cultural heritage is based on history. Industrial heritage is a relatively young phenomenon in Finland. It emerged in the late 1970s. The concepts, definitions and practice of industrial heritage, were adopted from Sweden. The first industrial heritage sites were proto-industrial ironworks, but during the late 1970s and early 1980s factories and industrial landscapes were also included in the definition. The area covered by the concept was further expanded in the 1980s. Oral traditions of the working class dominated the field of intangible industrial cultural heritage for a couple of decades. Today, the concept of industrial heritage covers many different perspectives. It took three decades to integrate the consciousness of industrial heritage into Finnish history culture. The Finnish Industrial Heritage key terminology was developed as late as the early 2000s. The terminology was finally clarified in international discussions and seminars, written and held in English.
