Presented in the form of a braided narrative between two voices, one personal and the other academic, this paper works from the assumption that the pursuit of regional and economic development through natural and cultural heritage management may sometimes result in locality first being unravelled and then entangled in processes of commodification. I seek by such means to reflect on place-based identity and the calculus of governing for heritage, and to ponder the extent to which the geographical form of particular places - and especially islands - might matter in our considerations of heritage and in the management strategies informed by such understandings. Keynote presentation at "Culture, place and identity at the heart of regional development" conference, October 13-15, 2011, St John's Newfoundland and Labrador.
