The heritage taxonomy presented, is to stimulate discussion on developing a common language in heritage management. Can it support more effective governance and the comparative study of empirical data to foster knowledge sharing co-learning? Charting the evolution of heritage concepts and subsequent management approaches in supranational policy documents led to a domain dependent taxonomy, reflecting the evolution of heritage concepts over the last 50 years. In this paper the development of such taxonomy is explored and discussed. The taxonomy was tested and revised with academics from various heritage-related disciplines. Moreover, the application of the taxonomy in comparative analysis is proposed. Although the taxonomy grew enormously with the widening of the heritage concept, it is still limited. It is therefore very important to always remain open-minded towards new, previously unrecognized conceptualizations of heritage, and include them in the taxonomy.
