Abstract: Abstract Historic enhancement means safeguarding the existence and appearance of historic elements of the community. Preserving archaeological monuments, sites and historic buildings is vital to understand a nation’s culture and to promote its heritage. There are four distinct approaches to the treatment of historic properties—rehabilitation, restoration, marketing and enhancement-that could lead to the sustainable development. The previous four directions can add to a community’s understanding and bringing economic and other benefits as well. It preserves the historic, architectural, and aesthetic character of the cultural heritage of a community and provides a sense of place and continuity. How do we encourage sustainable development; (providing incentives, imposing regulations, providing help and support to those engaged in preservation and for promotion itself, educating the public). How international constitutions, as UNESCO and Council of Europe have helped with initiatives (World Heritage List of UNESCO, Funding, Conventions) in order that many countries have obtained added value through their cultural wealth. The best example in practice in Greece that can illustrate the sustainable development of very complicated archaeological project is the unification of archaeological sites of Athens.
