In the week of the 13th June, a workshop on "Archaeology and Architecture in Europeana” organised by CARARE will precede the Centre for Digital Heritage’s annual meeting, which this year takes the theme of Heritage under threat.
The physical remains of our rich heritage are all around us. The historic houses we live and work in, the places we go to worship, places we visit to explore tombs, earthworks, architectural ruins or monuments to industries past, the museums we visit, the shape of our landscape and the ground beneath our feet. Digital technologies are widely used for heritage recording, monitoring, analysis and visualisation, for conservation and research, to support education, learning and tourism, community engagement and enjoyment.
On 13-14th June, CARARE and Europeana are organising a workshop which focuses on how digital content for the archaeological and architectural heritage can be made available to users of Europeana, experiences and best practices, and potential re-uses of the content for education, tourism, and researchers.
Then on 15-16th June, the Digital Archaeology Research group and Centre for Global Heritage and Development at the Faculty of Archaeology, Leiden University together with the Centre for Digital Heritage at the University of York are organising the CHD annual meeting, which this year takes the theme of ‘Heritage under threat’. Armed conflicts are currently threatening tangible (landscapes, sites, monuments and artefacts) and intangible (knowledge, languages and traditions) heritage at scales that seemed inconceivable only a few years ago. There are obvious threats in conflict zones but heritage is also threatened by neglect, decay, or a lack of stakeholder involvement, education, or technical and financial means.
