Image collection

Leicester University Archive

An archival collection of c. 1100 images of archaeological and archaeoastronomical interest has been available on-line since 1995.

     

     

Thousands of new images are (very!) gradually being made available— see here

The first ICOMOS–IAU Thematic Study presents an overall vision on astronomical heritage, attempts to identify what constitutes “outstanding universal significance to humankind” in relation to astronomy, and identifies broad issues that could arise in the assessment of cultural properties relating to astronomy.

 

This was the first Thematic Study in any field of science heritage, and was endorsed by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee in July 2010. It is being used to help develop better guidelines for UNESCO member states on the inscription of cultural properties with a connection to astronomy.
