Abstract

The author reviewed studies on cultural heritage disaster management, including historical disasters and disaster history in the field of human sciences. Integrating the humanities and sciences is essential to cultural heritage disaster management. Differences will occur if these fields do not understand directions and methodologies in practice. Based on such basic preconditions, studies are compared and reviewed between the field of human sciences and engineering and disaster management science, showing that measures must be taken to not prevent an integration between the humanities and sciences.
