The management of cultural heritage information is an important aspect of human society since it enables us to document and understand our past and learn from it. Recent developments in ICT have significantly boosted research and development activities aimed at the creation and management of cultural heritage resources. As a result, information systems play an increasingly important role on storing and managing cultural heritage information and allowing preservation of the information in a digital way. To support such effort, a number of cultural heritage conceptual models have been developed and presented in the literature. However, such models they focus on the heritage entities and information, but fail to include issues such as privacy and trust. Our research has shown that these are important issues to consider in order to have a complete cultural heritage model. This paper presents the first work in the literature to include privacy and trust as part of a cultural heritage conceptual model. We demonstrate the applicability of our work using a real world case study from the Iron Age settlement of Castrolandin in Spain.
