New edition of ‘Heritage Matters’ on sale

Supported by the Bank of Bermuda Foundation, the National Museum of Bermuda Press has recently published the fifth volume of Heritage Matters — the popular and informative historical essay series by Edward Harris.

Heritage Matters was first launched on March 4, 2005 with an article on the history and potential of the abandoned Casemates Prison in the Mid-Ocean News.

Garnering a dedicated audience, the series quickly became a popular must-read and continued for another decade.

As the essays' popularity grew, it was decided to make the series available in a series of books, each volume constituting a year's worth of articles.

Dr Harris's essays are illustrated to help give readers a visual of the topic at hand, with topics ranging from bus shelters to matters such as the importance of cultural tourism to the local economy.

Heritage Matters volumes one through five are available for $20 each at the National Museum and bookstores island-wide. For more information, contact or (441) 234 1333.
