Cultural Heritage



Cultural Heritage (i.e a nation's heritage) is the legacy of physical artifacts and intangible traditions (myths and legends) or a particular social grouping or society which have inherited both these tangible and intangible attributes from their ancestors. The knowledge, which is learnt from previous generations by the present, is then sought to be maintained and preserved in the present for the cultural and education benefit of future generations, whom will eventually become custodians of the knowledge which they have come to inherit down the line.

Tangible Cultural Heritage includes: architecture, artworks, literature and man made landscapes.

Intangible Cultural Heritage includes: traditions, folklore, indigenous knowledge and language.
