During its long history Persian culture has played a fundamental role in and has made major contributions to, human civilisation. During the last few decades, scholarly interest in Persian culture, including its history, archaeology, art and architecture, has accelerated research into Persian cultural heritage. Scientific studies have provided information about knowledge on which Persian traditional buildings are based and methodologies used for their preservation.

Focusing on the conservation and preservation of Persian architectural heritage, this book covers the topics of the philosophy of conservation, practical experiences and risk management of cultural heritage. This book will be useful not just as a scholarly reference for researchers and students, but also as a practical tool for practicing engineers.
