Engaging local communities in heritage asset management through Archaeological Ethnography

26 june – 22 july

Our Archaeological Ethnography field school, aims to closely investigate the involvement of locals with their material and intangible heritage in general, and the remains of various heritage sites scattered around the area of our lab-area, Gonies, Crete. We address the issues arising in the documentation, preservation, and dissemination of cultural heritage through our research and our public engagement with the village of Gonies, as well as local and national stakeholders. Our goal is to develop a public archaeology program that will contribute to the sustainable development of the area, engage with the locals and render them more active in the protection of their own heritage.

The IHC, in striving to achieve its mission by fostering research and good practices in heritage management, offers many opportunities for learning new skills or developing the skills and knowledge you may already have.
