Preservation is about buildings and conservation is about places : at least that is a convenient modern distinction. They are both important contemporary activities, and it is useful that the English language provides a separate word for each. Other languages are not so fortunate and have to make do with one word, leading to constant confusion between the need to preserve something untouched and the need over a wider area of ground, to preserve some buildings, restore others and deal with the whole area in which they stand in a way that retains its total - in most cases historical - character.
