          Abstract

          Kinta Valley in Perak State is one of the richest valley arising from 18th century tin mining production in Malaysia. The physical evidence of this production that surrounds Kinta offers a cultural landscape narrative about this ‘tin rush’ era that occurred from 1884 to 1895. This paper investigates the heritage significance of Kinta Valley former mining landscape through the lens of cultural landscape theory and practice. Through a detailed case study, documentary research and site observation have been applied as qualitative methods for data collection to unravel and quantify the heritage values of the Kinta Valley former mining landscape.
