Heritage at Risk

Protecting and Preserving Endangered Cultural Heritage

The recent devastating events at Notre-Dame, the National Museum of Brazil and across Syria remind us that cultural heritage is at constant risk, as much today as throughout history.

Drawing on rich material from Europeana Collections, Heritage at Risk explores the natural and man-made threats to cultural heritage, from ancient times until today. The exhibition’s final chapter examines the history of Notre-Dame and considers the role that digital technologies can play in the preservation and restoration of such fragile monuments.
