What is Resource Management?

Why are people so interested in the past? Which buildings are worth preserving?  How do you determine what do artifacts are worth saving? How do you develop policies and laws to ensure the correct methods are used when caring making these decisions; locating, excavating, caring for these resources; and shaping these policies.
