A chapter which explores the role of ruins within contemporary socety and the reception associated with them. In particular, it highlights the important ways in which social time is configured around the recovery of ruins from the past, focusing on the event-like character of time as Kairos that ruins evoke and the ways in which this intersects with our chronological sense of time. The chapter goes on to explore the implications for museums and the presentation of heritage.
