“In the era of fast, industrial changes archeological landscape is in great danger”

Director of National History Museum, Ernest Oberlander-Tarnoveanu:

The archaeological landscape, a significant and very vulnerable resource at the same time, as well as a good part of the world’s cultural heritage is today in the era of the fast, deep industrial changes in a great danger, says the director-general of the National History Museum of Romania (MNIR), Ernest Oberlander-Tarnoveanu.
The director-general says a great part of what the previous generations have left us, as traces in the field, was deeply altered with the passage of time.
Present in the opening of the “Approaches of the archaeological landscapes. Instruments, methodology and case studies in the European architectural and archaeological patrimony” international conference hosted on Wednesday and Thursday by the MNIR, Oberlander-Tarnoveanu told AGERPRES that the event is, to the Romanian specialists and to its guests, an opportunity to getting familiar with the new technologies used to highlight and map the archaeological landscape.
“The conference will allow the contact with other countries’ experiences”, the MNIR head says, stressing that “there is a long-lasting tradition and important bodies, such as CIMEC (Research, Record of the Mobile Cultural Heritage, Intangible and Digital Directorate) and the Army’s Topographic Institute in Romania to putting under protection the archaeological landscape”.
The two days of scientific manifestations within the conference will be dedicated to the theoretical approaches regarding the landscape concept (definitions, history, evolutions, etc.) and the interpretation methods (GIS, remote sensing, LIDAR, air photography, geostatistics, spatial analysis, etc.), as well as the national and international projects’ presentations already implemented or under way of being implemented.
The event which is to be joined by the “Images of archaeological landscape / Traces of the Past” photo exhibition is attended by specialists from Romania, the Republic of Moldova, Poland, France and Great Britain.
The MNIR event is organized within the projects “Archaeological Landscapes. Perspectives, History and Evolution”, financed by the National Cultural Fund’s Administration (Ministry of Culture), and “3D Digitisation of the representative elements of the European architectural and archaeological heritage” (3D-ICONS), financed by the Ministry of Culture and the European Union, under the auspices of the European project “ArchaeoLandscapes Europe” (ArcLand), all three aiming to research and promote the cultural heritage.
