Cultural heritage is the legacy of cultural resources and intangible attributes of a group or society that is inherited from past generations. Not all legacies of past generations are "heritage", rather heritage is a product of selection by society. Cultural heritage includes tangible culture such as buildings, monuments , landscapes, books, works of art, and artifacts , intangible culture such as folklore, traditions, language, and knowledge , and natural heritage including culturally significant landscapes, and biodiversity.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Most archaeologists now work in museums and other cultural institutions, government agencies, non-government organisations and private sector companies, and this diversity ensures that debates continue to proliferate about what constitutes appropriate professional ethics within these related and relevant contexts. Discussions about the ethics of cultural heritage in the 20 th century focused on standards of professionalism, stewardship, responsibilities to stakeholders and on establishing public trust in the authenticity of the outcomes of the heritage process. This volume builds on recent approaches that move away from treating ethics as responsibilities to external domains and to the discipline, and which seek to ensure ethics are integral to all heritage theory, practice and methods. The chapters in this collection chart a departure from the tradition of external heritage ethics towards a broader approach underpinned by the turn to human rights, issues of social justice and the political economy of heritage, conceptualising ethical responsibilities not as pertaining to the past, but to a future-focused domain of social action. Tracy Ireland is an archaeologist and heritage practitioner who joined the University of Canberra in and is currently Head of the Discipline of Humanities.
Archaeological Theory and the Politics of Cultural Heritage
Archaeology or archeology [a] is the study of human activity through the recovery and analysis of material culture. Archaeology is often considered a branch of socio-cultural anthropology, but archaeologists also draw from biological, geological, and environmental systems through their study of the past. The archaeological record consists of artifacts , architecture , biofacts or ecofacts and cultural landscapes. Archaeology can be considered both a social science and a branch of the humanities. Archaeologists study human prehistory and history , from the development of the first stone tools at Lomekwi in East Africa 3. It is particularly important for learning about prehistoric societies, for whom there may be no written records to study. The discipline involves surveying , excavation and eventually analysis of data collected to learn more about the past.
It explores both the immediate impact of the health crisis and examples of how countries around the world are adapting to the situation. This is one of several initiatives by the Organization to respond to the impact of the pandemic on the cultural sector worldwide. Empty UNESCO World Heritage sites, cultural events cancelled, cultural institutions closed, community cultural practices suspended, heightened risk of looting of cultural sites and poaching at natural sites, artists unable to make ends meet and the cultural tourism sector greatly affected… The impact of the COVID on the cultural sector is being felt around the world. Data from the World Health Organization shows that COVID- 19 now has a firm grip on every continent, with governments putting in place wide- spread confinement or mobility restrictions on an unprecedented scale. In these circumstances, billions of people are turning to culture as a source of comfort, well-being and connection. In the immediate term, the closure of museums poses great challenges in terms of access to culture. Whilst many museums around the world have been able to adapt through online solutions such as virtual tours or engaging the public through social media challenges, this is not possible for all museums across the world due to limited capacities or digital infrastructure.

Do members of cultural groups have special claims to own or control the products of the cultures to which they belong? Is there something morally wrong with employing artistic styles that are distinctive of a culture to which you do not belong? What is the relationship between cultural heritage and group identity? Is there a coherent and morally acceptable sense of cultural group membership in the first place? Is there a universal human heritage to which everyone has a claim?
В Севилье есть больницы получше. - Этот полицейский… - Клушар рассердился.
Алгоритм, не подающийся грубой силе, никогда не устареет, какими бы мощными ни стали компьютеры, взламывающие шифры. Когда-нибудь он станет мировым стандартом. Сьюзан глубоко вздохнула.
Всевидящее око, - сказал Фонтейн, вглядываясь в лица людей, которых он отправил в Испанию. Это была вынужденная мера. Фонтейн почти во всем полагался на Стратмора и верил в его план, в том числе и в достойную сожаления, но неизбежную необходимость устранять Энсея Танкадо и в переделку Цифровой крепости, - все это было правильно. Но одно не давало Фонтейну покоя - то, что Стратмор решил прибегнуть к услугам Халохота. Тот, конечно, был мастером своего дела, но наемник остается наемником.
