Summary Cultural Heritage, Ageing, Disability, andIdentity examines the effects of disability and ageing on engagement with cultural heritage and associated cultural identity formation processes. Combining theory with detailed case study research, it unpicks both the current state of play and future directions. The book is based upon detailedcase example research on both the self-reportedindividual experiences of people with disabilities engaging with cultural heritage, and theaccessibilityapproaches of cultural heritage institutions themselves. Hayhoe grounds the analysis in a theoretical and historical overview of disability and inclusion.He interrogates the various ways in which identity is formed through interaction with cultural heritage, and considers the differences in engagement with cultural heritage amongst those who develop disabilities early in life compared to those who acquiredisabilities later in life. His conclusionsoffer insightsthat can help improvethe provision of cultural heritage engagement to all people, but particularly those withdisabilities. Cultural Heritage, Ageing, Disability, andIdentityiskey reading for students and scholars of cultural heritage, visitor studies, anddisability studies,and willalso be of interestto othersubject areasengaging with issues of accessibility.It should also be read by institutions looking to improve their accessibility strategyto engage broader audiences
