Summary This paper provides an initial argument about the inter-connectedness of places and objects and about the place of objects in our culture. It points to the importance of preserving objects along with historic places, but goes futher to consider objects - material (or portable) heritage - as another source of historical or cultural evidence, together with the built environment, documentary and pictorial evidence and 'intangible heritage', or folklore
