Fictional heritage is the study of heritage in relation of fictional works, and can be broken down into two main categories, “heritage in fiction” and “heritage of fiction”.
Heritage in fiction is the expression, interpretation, and implementation of heritage in a fictional work. For example, the heritage and numerous object that is the “one ring” from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
Heritage of fiction is the expression and interpretation of heritage that forms externally to a fictional work, including myths and legends. Here you would find fandoms, academic analysis, and history of a fictional work and its impact on non-fictional people.
