What is Cultural Heritage?

 

It surrounds us in our towns and cities, natural landscapes and archaeological sites. It is not only found in literature, art and objects, but also in the crafts we learn from our ancestors, the stories we tell to our children, the food we enjoy in company and the films we watch and recognize ourselves in.

Its as simple as that - and you could be a winner.
