Heritage of Routes, Networks and Connections

European Heritage Days 2024

Society is built on networks that have allowed for exchanges in trade, religious beliefs, scientific knowledge, technological innovations, and shared cultural and artistic practices. Ancient routes, cities or villages, business establishments, religious buildings, post houses, towers, fortifications, and many other elements of our built environment are evidence of these exchanges. This theme is an opportunity to again travel these roads, routes and paths of history to discover what we can learn from them today. It is a chance to explore how our local heritage is connected to a wide variety of influences.
