  4. 4. In a dictionary, you will find “heritage” defined as something that has been inherited. Another way of thinking about heritage is to focus on those places and objects we wish to keep safe. These are natural and cultural cal places or objects that we value because theyO ur lo come from our ancestors, are beautiful, or may be scientifically important and heri tage irreplaceable. They may be a source of inspiration for us. They may even help to form our identities. In many ways, our heritage reflects the lives of our ancestors and survives today only because of the special efforts we make to preserve it. Can you imagine your local area without heritage? by Eva Hugas
  5. 5. Our cultural and natural heritage is fragile and has been greatly threatened, particularly over the last hundred years. For example, during the First and Second World Wars, many old towns and villages in Europe were destroyed. Important cultural monuments were damaged or destroyed.What had happened to many ancient wonders?Can you think of recent examples of this destruction? Learn more by doing the exercises in our moodle site. by Eva Hugas
  6. 6. Hi s tory Between the two World Wars, the League of Nations, the predecessor of the United Nations began working on facts ways to protect our heritage. After the Second World War this work accelerated, the UNESCO was established in 1945. There were important international conventions. One of these specifically designed to protect cultural heritage in times of war. An example of an international campaign to save a monument: Abu Simbel •Abu Simbel temples are two massive rock temples in Abu Simbel, Southern Egypt. •UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE •Built by Ramses II in the 13th c BC as a monument to himself and his queen Nefertiti •The temple had to be relocated because of the building of the Aswan Dam by Eva Hugas
  7. 7. To accommodate the monuments on the island, rocks were blasted with explosives, and the heavy blocks of the dismantled temples were inserted in their place in the walls. The stone blocks each weighed between half a ton and 12 tons. About 40,000 blocks had to be moved. Each block was specially numbered to ensure correct placement in its new site.Dismantling and moving the monuments was the onlyway that these temples could be saved.Today, heritage conservationists around the worldconsider the physical relocation of cultural heritagemonuments to be undesirable except as an absolutelast resort, as was the case of Abu Simbel by Eva Hugas
