Comment apprendre des ruines ? Une archéologue autrichienne nommée Scientifique de l'année 2011
Venons compléter l'article du BE Autriche 143 concernant l'archéologue autrichienne de Klagenfurt, Sabine Ladstätter (43
ans), nommée "Scientifique de l'année 2011 " par le club des journalistes de l'image et de la science lors d'une conférence
de presse à Vienne début 2012 .
Sabine Ladstätter, qui a d'abord étudié à l'Université de Graz puis obtenu son doctorat et son habilitation à l'université de
Vienne , est actuellement directrice de l'Institut autrichien d'archéologie (OAI) depuis 2009 et des fouilles autrichiennes à
Ephèse (Turquie) depuis 2010 auxquelles elle participait depuis 1995. C'est un défi pour elle que d'obtenir des aides des
décideurs et de lutter contre l'interminable bureaucratie. Elle ne craint pas de pointer du doigt le manque d'archives écrites
ou photographiques disponibles et les structures vieillissantes loin d'être à la hauteur face à une recherche de plus en plus
moderne et exigeante. Le titre de " Scientifique de l'année " repose sur l'effort, le travail mais également sur la médiation
et la vulgarisation envers le grand public, différentes qualités permettant d'élever l'image de la recherche autrichienne.

The National Museum of Civil War Medicine is trying to determine if a preserved
human forearm is a relic of the Civil War Battle of Antietam - Frederick - MarylandUSA
Long after the guns fell silent at Antietam, the earth yielded up gruesome reminders of the
bloodiest day of the American Civil War: bodies, bones, buttons and entire severed limbs —

Divinely beautiful Greek charioteer comes to London - The British Museum. London (United
Kingdom)
He is called the charioteer and although damaged, with his turning, athletic body and robe so fine and
clinging that every muscle is revealed, he is one of the most exquisite surviving Greek sculptures. And the
British Museum has managed to borrow him for the duration of the Olympic Games.
From 1 May, the fifth-century BC Auriga (charioteer) of Mozia (where he was found) will be on display in
the Duveen Gallery surrounded by the Parthenon Marbles, which are slightly younger by about 30 years.
Normally, to see the charioteer you have to make a lengthy pilgrimage to a remote island off the west
coast of Sicily, to the little museum set up in memory of the English marsala importer Giuseppe Whitaker, who personally
funded decades of excavations there.

Archaeologists Blast Hasty World Heritage Listings
One of the most significant global committees that you never heard of summoned a couple
of hundred experts to the island of Menorca, Spain last week. The meeting involved politics,
the remnants of great civilizations, human catastrophes, architectural triumphs, religious
works of art and architecture, use of tourism, the rise and fall of empires, and did we say
politics?
The International Committee on Archaeological Heritage Management, or ICAHM, held its
first conference on how to manage the world’s myriad archaeological World Heritage sites.
This wildly varied array of places encompasses many of the most celebrated sites of human cultural accomplishment and
catastrophe—everything from the pyramids and Roman fortifications to Mongol-era tombs and prehistoric rock art. ICAHM’s
key job is to advise the World Heritage Committee about new sites proposed for the famous list. I attended as a guest of
the Congress, which paid for my travel.

Le patrimoine archéologique syrien est en danger - Un état de lieu de minarets,
mosquées, monastères qui ont été endommagés ou pillés - Appel à la communauté
internationale - Euromed Heritage
Le patrimoine archéologique syrien subit divers types de dommages et de dégradations à
différents degrés, qu’il s’agisse de monuments ou de quartiers historiques, de sites
archéologiques, de musées ou de lieux de culte. Ces destructions ont
commencé dès le 15 mars 2011, date de la montée en puissance du soulèvement syrien.
Nous souhaitons que cet appel puisse devenir le fondement de travaux à venir sur la question
des dommages infligés aux biens culturels du pays. Il a aussi pour objectif d'éviter que se reproduisent des destructions
aussi graves et généralisées que celles qui
ont eu lieu lors de la répression subie par la ville de Hama en 1982, qui a notamment vu ses quartiers historiques et son
patrimoine mobilier dévastés, ainsi que son musée pillé, déprédations dont personne n'a jamais osé parler depuis.

Colossus Re-Erected at Memnon - Egypt
The Colossi of Memnon have been famous landmarks in the Nile Valley since
antiquity. Originally, however, there were three pairs of colossal statues, two on
either side of each monumental gateway, or pylon, of Pharaoh Amenhotep III's
mortuary temple. Along with the rest of the vast temple, these colossi vanished in
antiquity after a series of earthquakes, leaving the two famous Colossi of Memnon
as the only major visible remnants. Excavations and WMF-supported conservation
work have been ongoing at the site since the first World Monuments Watch-listing
in 1998, and over several seasons large sections of toppled colossi have been uncovered. On March 1 a ceremony marked
the partial re-erection of one of the colossi. The conserved head and torso will be mounted early next year. A slideshow of
some recent work is available online.

Inspectors of the Israel Antiquities Authority recently seized two covers of
Egyptian sarcophagi that contained ancient mummies in the past. The
covers were confiscated by inspectors of the Unit for the Prevention of
Antiquities Robbery while checking shops in the market place of the Old
City in Jerusalem. The ancient covers, which are made of wood and
coated with a layer of plaster, are adorned with breathtaking decorations and paintings of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.
The coffins were taken for examination on the suspicion they might be stolen property.

Découverte d’une sculpture représentant les enfants de Cléopâtre et Marc-Antoine
Après plusieurs années d’étude d’une sculpture conservée au musée du Caire, l’égyptologue italienne
Giuseppina Capriotti a découvert qu’il s’agissait de la représentation des jumeaux que Cléopâtre eut de
Marc-Antoine.
La sculpture de près d’un mètre en grès gris est conservée au musée du Caire depuis 1918, après sa
découverte près du temple d’Hathor à Dendérah. Giuseppina Capriotti, égyptologue du Conseil national de
recherches en Italie, est parvenue à identifier les deux enfants représentés : il s’agirait d’Alexandre Hélios
et Cléopâtre Séléné, les jumeaux que la dernière reine d’Egypte Cléopâtre eut avec le général romain MarcAntoine. La scientifique a fait publié ses recherches et analyses par le Centre polonais d’archéologie méditerranéenne à
l’Université de Varsovie.

Emergence et développement de l'archéologie préhistorique en Midi Toulousain entre 19e et 20e siècle
Par Sébastien Dubois Dès le milieu du XIXe siècle, Toulouse apparaît comme un pôle dynamique du développement des
études en archéologie préhistorique. " Laboratoire " d'expériences institutionnelles de la jeune discipline, enseignements
universitaires, revues, sociétés savantes et musées toulousains favorisent en effet l'implantation d'une communauté
scientifique dont l'examen sociologique révèle l'ampleur des réseaux à différentes échelles, notamment à travers l'étude
des correspondances et archives personnelles de ces premiers préhistoriens.Parmi les nombreuses personnalités
scientifiques ayant participé à ce développement et favorisé l'essor des recherches en ce domaine, la figure d'Emile
Cartailhac (1845-1921) apparaît comme emblématique de cette communauté savante. La longue et prolifique carrière de
ce scientifique provincial, son engagement dans la structuration de la communauté locale, ses relations avec les savants
français et étrangers ainsi que son implication active dans les grands débats de son époque le placent au cœur d'une
problématique visant à redéfinir le rôle de ces érudits locaux dans la constitution des savoirs entre XIXe et XXe siècle. Ce
travail propose donc à travers l'étude de la pensée et de la production de ce préhistorien toulousain, notamment par
l'examen de ses archives personnelles, une lecture de l'histoire de la discipline et des apports de ces savants d'envergure "

Des Armes et des Hommes. L'archerie à la transition fin du Néolithique/Age du Bronze en Europe occidentale Université Toulouse Le Mirail. Toulouse II (France)
Part importante de l'armement préhistorique pour les périodes récentes (quantitativement et qualitativement), l'archerie
représente un objet d'étude riche en développements problématiques. A l'aube de l'introduction progressive de la
métallurgie dans les usages techniques, il est intéressant de saisir le ou les processus de transferts mis en œuvre.
Transition chronologique (Néolithique/Age du bronze), transition matérielle (types de pièces produites et types de
matériaux employés) et transition comportementale sont ainsi envisagées pour parvenir à préciser le statut de cet

des contextes de fabrication, sur la reconnaissance des champs fonctionnels (utilisations et usagers) et sur l'analyse archéobalistique des vestiges de traumatismes par flèches dans le cadre de violences interhumaines, il en résulte un ensemble
exhaustif qui renouvelle sensiblement la perception de cet armement dans le temps et dans les usages.

Microstratigraphic evidence of in situ fire in the Acheulean strata of Wonderwerk Cave, Northern Cape
Province (South Africa)
By Francesco Bernaa, Paul Goldberga, Liora Kolska Horwitzc, James Brinkd, Sharon Holtd, Marion Bamfordf and Michael
Chazang The ability to control fire was a crucial turning point in human evolution, but the question when hominins first
developed this ability still remains. Here we show that micromorphological and Fourier transform infrared
microspectroscopy (mFTIR) analyses of
intact sediments at the site of Wonderwerk Cave, Northern Cape province, South Africa, provide unambiguous evidence—in
the form of burned bone and ashed plant remains—that burning took place in the cave during the early Acheulean
occupation, approximately 1.0 Ma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the earliest secure evidence for burning in an
archaeological context.

Coverage of Archaeological Ruins of the Abbey of St. Maurice / Savioz Fabrizzi Architectes 2010. Saint-Maurice (Switzerland)
The abbey of Saint Maurice was built almost 1500 years ago. It is situated against a cliff in a section
of the road between Geneva and the Simplon Pass. This particular site was likely to be chosen for its
defensive position given by the cliff. However the planned for tification proved a failure due to rock
fragments falling from the cliffon to the building.
Throughout the history rock slide shadan important influence causing several damages: In 1611 a
huge rock fall caused a convulsion of the abbey, 1942 a rock destroyed the cross-spire and portalnave of the building. Those slides have constantly been occurring and marked the site throughout history…

1st. MAC International Workshop of Archaeological Geophysics - Girona (Spain) 21-25 may 2012
The discipline of archaeological geophysics has been in constant development since the 1970s. The increasing capability of
different sensors for non-destructively mapping the shallow subsurface has produced very useful images for archaeologists
in the last few years. The 1st MAC-IWAG is another activity offered by Museu d'Arqueologia de Catalunya in order to
support research in the field of non-destructive technologies for archaeological prospection, after two years of testing some
of these technologies in Catalonian archaeological sites.
With the participation of some of the best experts in archaeological geophysics worldwide, MAC-IWAG offers archaeologists

Archaeologists find ancient Mayan workshop for astronomers in northeastern
Guatemala
Archaeologists have found a small room in Mayan ruins where royal scribes apparently used
walls like a blackboard to keep track of astronomical records and the society's intricate
calendar some 1,200 years ago. The walls reveal the oldest known astronomical tables from
the Maya. Scientists already knew they must have been keeping such records at that time,
but until now the oldest known examples dated from about 600 years later. Astronomical
records were key to the Mayan calendar, which has gotten some attention recently because
of doomsday warnings that it predicts the end of the world this December. Experts say it makes no such prediction. The
new finding provides a bit of backup: The calculations include a time span longer than 6,000 years that could extend well
beyond 2012.

Researchers from British Museum in London say they have new clue to Lost Colony - North Carolina (USA)
A new look at a 425-year-old map has yielded a tantalizing clue about the fate of the Lost Colony, the settlers who
disappeared from North Carolina's Roanoke Island in the late 16th century. Experts from the First Colony Foundation and
the British Museum in London discussed their findings Thursday at a scholarly meeting on the campus of the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Their focus: the "Virginea Pars" map of Virginia and North Carolina created by explorer John
White in the 1580s and owned by the British Museum since 1866.

La France racontée par les archéologues - Fouilles et découvertes au XXIe siècle
Par Cyril Marcigny
ISBN-13: 978-2070137251
Editions Gallimard
Faisant la synthèse des résultats inédits de dix années de recherche, ce livre revisite l'histoire et la
géographie de la France à la lumière des découvertes les plus marquantes de l'Inrap. La France racontée
par les archéologues embrasse 200.000 ans de présence humaine. Des traces de pré-Néandertaliens
dans la vallée de la Seine jusqu'aux stigmates des conflits du XXe siècle en Picardie et en Ile-de-France,
cette fresque fait découvrir des aspects insoupçonnés de notre passé : changements climatiques, transformations des
paysages, migrations et occupation du territoire, modes de vie, hiérarchies sociales, habitat, techniques agricoles,
artisanales et industrielles, échanges économiques, religions, pratiques funéraires, art... Et elle nous rappelle que partout,
sous nos pas, les "archives du sol" attendent encore leurs découvreurs.

The Classical World
Discover the wonders of the great Greek and Roman Empires that dominated the ancient Mediterranean
for more than 1,000 years. This special collector's edition of ARCHAEOLOGY magazine surveys it all.
Stunning photography and vivid storytelling shed light on southern Italy's 2,500-year-old Greek temples,
and on evidence of daily life found in a 1st century A.D.Roman villa. Learn how the world's first computer
was used to predict both lunar and solar eclipses. See how one weapon, deployed in the waters off of
Sicily, changed the course of a decades-long war. And see how gladiators ate and exercised in preparation
for combat.
Visit excavations in Naples where subway construction has revealed the earliest days of that city. And, see how, in the
center of Rome, a mountain of discarded amphorae hold clues to the ancient olive oil trade, the basis of the Roman
economy. The Classical World has all this, and more. Don't miss it!

Appel à projets - Travaux de Restauration de milieux naturels - Ministère français
de l'environnement - Date limite de candidature: 22 juin 2012
Les aires protégées constituent un élément important du maillage écologique du territoire,
souvent réservoirs de biodiversité mais aussi corridors écologiques. Elles sont devenues en
quelques décennies des territoires de très forts enjeux d’interface nature/société car elles
constituent un socle important d’activités, voire d’identités, territoriales. Les pratiques de
conservation de la biodiversité ne peuvent désormais plus s’extraire des contextes
sociétaux : trop souvent perçues comme facteurs de contraintes supplémentaires, les aires
protégées peuvent aussi être des vecteurs de « croissance verte ». Conduire des opérations exemplaires de restauration
des milieux naturels est la démarche la plus à même de faire évoluer les représentations collectives et de les inscrire dans
une gestion patrimoniale « intégrée » et donc de développement durable « territorialisé ».
C’est la raison pour laquelle le présent appel à projets permettra d’apporter un concours financier à des investissements
ayant pour finalité la restauration de milieux naturels dégradés nécessaires aux continuités écologiques, qui conjuguent
génie écologique et implication des acteurs du territoire.

Appel à projets - Rétablissement de continuités écologiques sur des infrastructures de transport existantes Ministère français de l'environnement. Date limite de candidature: 22 juin 2012
La qualité des continuités écologiques est un des paramètres qui garantit l’état de conservation d’une espèce et le bon
fonctionnement des populations. Les infrastructures de transport linéaires peuvent avoir de forts impacts sur les continuités
écologiques par effet de rupture ou de morcellement si elles ne prennent pas en compte, dès leur conception, ces
exigences. Si les nouveaux projets, en application de la réglementation, doivent être conçus de manière à éviter de tels
impacts (et le cas échéant, à les réduire et à les compenser), les infrastructures existantes, en particulier les plus
anciennes, mises en service avant l’application des dispositions réglementaires actuelles, peuvent avoir été conçues sans
tenir compte des continuités écologiques, ou comporter des aménagements peu ou pas efficaces du point de vue de la
fonctionnalité écologique.

International chair in Evolutionary Marine Ecology - LabexMer. University of
Brest (France) Deadline for applications: 31 May 2012
LabexMER is enthusiastically inviting applications for an international chair in
Evolutionary Marine Ecology. This chair aims to promote research on both the
evolutionary influences on ecological processes and on the ecological influences on
evolutionary processes, using both theoretical and experimental approaches.
The applicants should have an international recognition and a significant publication
record in ecology, especially in functional ecology. One of the potential pathways to
tackle these questions could rely on experimental approaches where evolutionary processes on short time scales
(phenotypic plasticity, changes in life history traits) influence ecological processes. The development of theoretical models
will represent one of the expected outcomes of this chair.
The chair is set up for a duration of three years. It is awarded with a grant of 200,000 €/year. These funds include the
salary of the successful candidate. Part of this funding may also be used for equipment purpose, operating costs and costs
related to personnel hired on a fix-termed contract basis, that cannot exceed the duration of the project.

International Post-doctoral Fellowships in Marine Sciences - LabexMer laboratories. University of Brest
(France) Deadline for Applications : 21 May 2012 - noon (French time)
The brightest young scientists are also the most creative. They are able to conceive and carry out independent research.
The existing funding for post-doctoral researchers in France is targeted most of the time at very specific projects that do
not leave enough opportunities for independent research and creative ideas. To overcome this problem, the LabexMER
partners are creating a new post-doctoral program. It is inspired by successful similar programs such as the U.S. NOAA
Climate Change and Global Change postdoctoral program or WHOI postdoctoral fellowship. It will allow young scientists to
propose their own research project in marine sciences (within the LabexMER research axes) to be carried out in one or
several LabexMER laboratories. The competitive awards are designed to further the education and training of the applicant
with primary emphasis placed on the individual's research promise and relevance to Labex Mer research Axis.

INTERPOL, and the Kenya Wildlife Service, were meeting this week in Libreville,
in response to the growing threat of poaching and trafficking of protected and

Là où la plupart d'entre nous ne perçoit qu'un banal sol de terre, Lionel Ranjard sait qu'il s'y développe une extraordinaire

Noé Conservation: Conserver la Biodiversité
Noé Conservation a pour mission de sauvegarder la biodiversité, par des programmes de
conservation d’espèces menacées et de leurs milieux naturels, et en encourageant le
changement de nos comportements en faveur de l’environnement.
L’érosion actuelle de la biodiversité, la disparition définitive de milliers d’espèces de plantes et
d’animaux, la destruction des milieux naturels due aux activités humaines, et finalement la
dégradation de notre environnement quotidien, nous semble inacceptable. Inacceptable tant
pour des raisons éthiques et morales que parce que cela va à l’encontre de l’intérêt général et
du bien-être de l’humanité. En effet, nous vivons au quotidien grâce à la biodiversité !

Human-Modified Habitats Indirectly Influence Bird-Mating Patterns
Birds provide one of the most common ways to encounter nature in cities, but few people
wonder how their actions affect birds looking for love. A new study published in the journal
Ecology and Evolution this month suggests that changes by people in suburban environments
can affect the number of breeding pairs, their selection of a mate and even shape how a species
evolves. The study tracked gray catbirds nesting in Washington, D.C.-area parks and in local
backyards participating in a citizen science project called Neighborhood Nestwatch, which is run
by the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute’s Migratory Bird Center…

transport existantes - Ministère français de l'environnement. Date limite de candidature: 22 juin 2012
La qualité des continuités écologiques est un des paramètres qui garantit l’état de conservation d’une espèce et le bon
fonctionnement des populations. Les infrastructures de transport linéaires peuvent avoir de forts impacts sur les continuités
écologiques par effet de rupture ou de morcellement si elles ne prennent pas en compte, dès leur conception, ces
exigences. Si les nouveaux projets, en application de la réglementation, doivent être conçus de manière à éviter de tels
impacts (et le cas échéant, à les réduire et à les compenser), les infrastructures existantes, en particulier les plus
anciennes, mises en service avant l’application des dispositions réglementaires actuelles, peuvent avoir été conçues sans
tenir compte des continuités écologiques, ou comporter des aménagements peu ou pas efficaces du point de vue de la
fonctionnalité écologique.

COMPETITONS - Appel à projets - Travaux de Restauration de milieux naturels Ministère français de l'environnement - Date limite de candidature: 22 juin 2012
Les aires protégées constituent un élément important du maillage écologique du territoire,
souvent réservoirs de biodiversité mais aussi corridors écologiques. Elles sont devenues en
quelques décennies des territoires de très forts enjeux d’interface nature/société car elles
constituent un socle important d’activités, voire d’identités, territoriales. Les pratiques de
conservation de la biodiversité ne peuvent désormais plus s’extraire des contextes
sociétaux : trop souvent perçues comme facteurs de contraintes supplémentaires, les aires
protégées peuvent aussi être des vecteurs de « croissance verte ». Conduire des opérations exemplaires de restauration
des milieux naturels est la démarche la plus à même de faire évoluer les représentations collectives et de les inscrire dans
une gestion patrimoniale « intégrée » et donc de développement durable « territorialisé ».
C’est la raison pour laquelle le présent appel à projets permettra d’apporter un concours financier à des investissements
ayant pour finalité la restauration de milieux naturels dégradés nécessaires aux continuités écologiques, qui conjuguent
génie écologique et implication des acteurs du territoire.

Un guide pour une meilleure gestion des sangliers : utilité et nécessité de couloirs de chasse dans le maïs Allemagne
Le Ministère fédéral pour l'alimentation, l'agriculture et la protection des consommateurs (BMELV), le Syndicat des
agriculteurs allemands (DBV) et l'Association allemande de chasse (DJV) ont publié le 4 avril 2012 la brochure intitulée
"Gestion des sangliers dans le paysage agricole - problèmes et mesures".
Le document repose sur un projet pilote conduit à l'initiative du BMELV entre 2008 et 2010. Celui-ci se place dans le
contexte de la récente évolution des cultures énergétiques, avec le maïs en tête. En effet, l'augmentation des surfaces de
production de maïs et leur forte concentration régionale rendent d'une part difficile la chasse aux sangliers, mais d'autre
part, ceux-ci raffolant de cette céréale, créent d'importants dégâts dans les champs ce qui n'est pas sans conséquences sur
les rendements : le sanglier devient l'été l'ennemi numéro un des producteurs de maïs.

IMPACT DES CHANGEMENTS CLIMATIQUES ET DISTRIBUTION SPATIALE DES OISEAUX MARINS DE L'OCÉAN
AUSTRAL
Par Clara Péron D'après le dernier rapport du Groupe Intergouvernemental d'Experts sur l'Evolution du Climat (GIEC), la
réalité d'un réchauffement majeur du climat est sans équivoque. Ce travail de thèse a consisté à dresser un bilan des
changements climatiques passés et récents dans l'océan Austral et à évaluer si l'impact de ces changements sur la
distribution spatiale des oiseaux marins était déjà détectable et/ou prévisible. Grâce aux données historiques d'observation
en mer par bateau sur 12 espèces d'oiseaux marins, nous avons mis en évidence une diminution d'abondance chez trois
espèces et des changements de distribution contrastés entre les années 1980 et 2000. Ces espèces ont la particularité
d'exploiter les eaux subtropicales où le réchauffement a été plus intense pendant cette période. Les suivis télémétriques
apportent des informations précieuses sur la variabilité spatio-temporelle de la distribution des zones d'alimentation.

Ducklings signal hope for world's rarest bird - Antsohihy (Madagascar)
The Madagascar pochard - arguably the world’s rarest bird - has bred successfully in captivity
building hope that it can be saved from extinction.
Eighteen precious pochard ducklings are being reared at a specially built centre in Antsohihy,
Madagascar, opened last year by Dr Lee Durrell. The birth of the ducklings is a key milestone in
the conservation of the species, including an emergency expedition two years ago to take eggs
into captivity. It is the ducks from those eggs that have now bred for the first time.
The pochard breeding programme is part of a joint project to save the bird by Durrell Wildlife
Conservation Trust and Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT), the Peregrine Fund, Asity Madagascar and the Government of
Madagascar.

By resolution of the government of the Russian Federation, the Land of the Leopard National Park
was established on 262 thousand hectares in the southwest of Primorsky Province.
This single protected territory has the capacity to ensure the survival of at least 50 Far Eastern
leopards and covers 60% of its remaining habitats. And most importantly, the park includes all
breeding grounds, which leopards use from generation to generation. The national park will also
become home to 10 Amur tigers that are key for Changbaishan population in China and a valuable
Korean pine forest…

Herders of upland Mongun-Taiga Area in Republic of Tuva learn to value
snow leopard (Russian Federation)
Herders of South-Western Tuva still live of life of their ancestors. The people live
on selling meat and sheep. Loss of a single sheep is a disaster for them as herding
remains the main occupation for the dwellers for Tuva. The tuvinian people are not
ready to share their cattle with the snow leopard that neighbors his home range
with herders. They tend to shoot the animal as a revenge for cattle loss which is
the main threat for a snow leopard in South-Western Tuva.
WWF along with Ubsunurskaya Hollow Nature Reserve started the project of educating the herders and involving them into

Unique Catfish Found in Ecuador
A new species of suckermouth armored catfish (pictured) has been found
in Ecuador, a new study says. DePaul University scientist Windsor Aguirre
found five specimens of the odd-looking fish in 2008 in the Santa Rosa
River and sent them to Alabama's Auburn University for identification.
The lack of head plates suggests the species is a "missing link" between
other Cordylancistrus species and the related genus Chaetostoma, which
has an unplated snout, Tan said.
The arrangement makes the new species "a really unusual fish," said Tan, who named the animal Cordylancistrus
santarosensis after its home river.

Ujung Kulon National Park, Indonesia - Javan Rhinoceros (Rhinoceros sondaicus) International Rhino Foundation
The Javan rhinoceros (Rhinoceros sondaicus) is one of the rarest species of mammals and one of
the most endangered rhinoceros species, with fewer than 60 animals believed to exist in two
known populations. Between 40 and 60 individuals inhabit Ujung Kulon National Park in West
Java, Indonesia, and between three and five individuals are part of a likely non-viable population
in the Cat Loc section of Cat Tien National Park in Vietnam.
Because Javan Rhinos inhabit dense tropical forests, they are not easy targets for poachers with
guns. But they are vulnerable to poachers who use snares and traps to capture and kill the rhino so its horn can then be
removed…

Recent Plant Diversity Changes on Europe’s Mountain Summits
In mountainous regions, climate warming is expected to shift species’ ranges to higher altitudes. Evidence for such shifts is
still mostly from revisitations of historical sites. We present recent (2001 to 2008) changes in vascular plant species
richness observed in a standardized monitoring network across Europe’s major mountain ranges. Species have moved
upslope on average. However, these shifts had opposite effects on the summit floras’ species richness in boreal-temperate
mountain regions (+3.9 species on average) and Mediterranean mountain regions (–1.4 species), probably because recent
climatic trends have decreased the availability of water in the European south. Because Mediterranean mountains are
particularly rich in endemic species, a continuation of these trends might shrink the European mountain flora, despite an
average increase in summit species richness across the region.

Combien d'églises détruites dans 20 ans ? Observatoire du patrimoine religieux France
Après l'annonce du relèvement de 30% des droits à construire sur l'ensemble du territoire
français, véritable menace pour le patrimoine monumental de notre pays, l'Observatoire du
Patrimoine Religieux, association non-confessionnelle œuvrant au rayonnement et à la
préservation du patrimoine religieux français, dresse un état des lieux de la situation du
patrimoine cultuel.
En dépit de l'excellent travail de nombreux maires ou responsables des lieux de culte, ce patrimoine reste fragile et
menacé. Vols à répétition, ventes et transformations de lieux de culte, destructions et - pire encore à long terme abandons purs et simples, constituent les premières menaces. A celles-ci, la crise financière actuelle pose à moyen terme la
question du financement de l'entretien et de l'ouverture de ce patrimoine identitaire auquel les Français sont très attachés.
En effet, l'affaiblissement des finances publiques et l'endettement considérable de l'Etat et des collectivités locales sont
autant d'hypothèques sur l'avenir de l'ensemble extraordinaire des édifices cultuels français. Des milliers de monuments
religieux pourraient disparaitre d'ici à 20 ans !

Renovation of the Baeza Town Hall / Viar Estudio Arquitectura - 2011 - Baeza (Spain)
The Baeza Township Project has been read as a unit in a duration, as a constant change process
where the new design has been thought as an additional stratum, as the last sediment layer in
time the building has created. The thought about the temporal process of architecture is
fundamental.
Historical architecture is based on overlays, accumulating many different pasts in what could be
called the «durée» of architecture. Henri Bergson said that the ultimate reality is not the being,
nor the changing being, but the continuous process of change which he called «durée» or duration.
Architecture has a way of being in time, a becoming that lasts, a change that is substance on its own.

Les modèles numériques peuvent-ils retracer la météo des XVIIIe et XIXe siècles ?
Le projet CHEDAR (Climate and gealth data rescue and modelling) a pour objectif d’évaluer la capacité des
modèles numériques à simuler les séquences météorologiques emblématiques (vagues de chaleur ou de
froid, épisodes post-éruption volcanique…) des XVIIIe et XIXe siècles, avant la mise en place des grands
réseaux de stations météorologiques. Financé par l’ANR, il réunit des climatologues du Laboratoire des
sciences du climat et l'environnement(1) (LSCE/IPSL,CNRS / CEA / UVSQ), laboratoire coordinateur du
projet, du Laboratoire de météorologie dynamique(1) (LMD/IPSL, CNRS / ENS / UPMC / École
Polytechnique), de Météo-France et des historiens du Centre de recherche d'histoire quantitative (CRHQ,
CNRS / Université de Caen Basse-Normandie). L’une des étapes du projet, la numérisation de relevés météorologiques du
fonds d’archives de la Société royale de médecine, vient de s’achever. Les documents sont aujourd’hui consultables sur un
site accessible au grand public.

Satellite observes rapid ice shelf disintegration in Antarctic
As ESA’s Envisat satellite marks ten years in orbit, it continues to observe the rapid retreat of one of
Antarctica’s ice shelves due to climate warming.
One of the satellite’s first observations following its launch on 1 March 2002 was of break-up of a main
section of the Larsen B ice shelf in Antarctica – when 3200 sq km of ice disintegrated within a few days due
to mechanical instabilities of the ice masses triggered by climate warming.
Now, with ten years of observations using its Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR), Envisat has
mapped an additional loss in Larsen B’s area of 1790 sq km over the past decade.

Les écosystèmes riches fragiles face aux variations climatiques extrêmes
Les écosystèmes sont de plus en plus soumis à des perturbations d'origine anthropique, le changement climatique étant
l'une d'entre elles. Les travaux sur le sujet indiquent que la fréquence et l'intensité des évènements climatiques extrêmes
tels que les ouragans, les inondations ou les sécheresses ont augmenté et risquent encore de se renforcer. Face à cette
variabilité accrue, comment les écosystèmes vont-ils réagir ?
C'est à cette question que s'est intéressé une équipe de recherche en biologie théorique de l'université de Linköping. Les
études précédentes sur les réseaux trophiques suggéraient que les écosystèmes riches en espèces sont plus robustes que
ceux à faible diversité. Les résultats publiés par l'équipe suédoise dans la revue " Ecology and Evolution" sont assez
différents. En simulant, grâce à un modèle mathématique, la dynamique de différents écosystèmes en cas de perturbations
environnementales majeures, les auteurs ont observé que les systèmes méga-divers étaient les plus vulnérables.

Slight mass gain of Karakoram glaciers in the early twenty-first century
By Julie Gardelle, Etienne Berthier & Yves Arnaud Assessments of the state of health of Hindu-Kush–Karakoram–Himalaya
glaciers and their contribution to regional hydrology and global sea-level rise suffer from a severe lack of observations1.
The globally averaged mass balance of glaciers and ice caps is negative. An anomalous gain of mass has been suggested
for the Karakoram glaciers, but was not confirmed by recent estimates of mass balance. Furthermore, numerous glacier
surges in the region that lead to changes in glacier length and velocity complicate the interpretation of the available
observations. Here, we calculate the regional mass balance of glaciers in the central Karakoram between 1999 and 2008,
based on the difference between two digital elevation models. We find a highly heterogeneous spatial pattern of changes in
glacier elevation, which shows that ice thinning and ablation at high rates can occur on debris-covered glacier tongues. The
regional mass balance is just positive at +0.11±0.22 m yr−1 water equivalent and in agreement with the observed
reduction of river runoff that originates in this area. Our measurements confirm an anomalous mass balance in the
Karakoram region and indicate that the contribution of Karakoram glaciers to sea-level rise was −0.01 mm yr−1 for the
period from 1999 to 2008, 0.05 mm yr−1 lower than suggested before.

EVOLUTION RECENTE DES OCEANS TROPICAUX: LE RÔLE DE L'INFLUENCE HUMAINE
Par Lola Corre Au sein du système complexe que constitue le climat, l'océan joue un rôle primordial. D'une part, il
enregistre et intègre les effets du changement climatique; d'autre part, les échelles de temps de ses variations naturelles,
et notamment son inertie thermique environ mille fois supérieure à celle de l'atmosphère, en font un acteur important
susceptible de moduler les effets futurs du changement climatique. Cette thèse se propose de mettre en évidence des
signatures du changement climatique d'origine anthropique dans l'océan. Pour cela, nous étudions les évolutions observées
de la température océanique de sub-surface et de la salinité océanique de surface, au cours des trente à cinquante
dernières années. Des méthodes statistiques de détection de la réponse au forçage anthropique sont utilisées pour
déterminer si une influence humaine peut être détectée dans les changements récents observés.

Atlantique), le Cameroun offre l'avantage de proposer un ensemble représentatif des climats régionaux rencontrés en
Afrique tropicale. La diminution des cumuls de précipitations enregistrée dans la région pendant la seconde moitié du XXe
siècle, est associée à la récurrence de périodes anormalement sèches, essentiellement au coeur de la saison des pluies. Ces
conditions ont amplifié la dégradation du couvert végétal au travers ses contraintes socioéconomiques et démographiques

IMPACT DES CHANGEMENTS CLIMATIQUES ET DISTRIBUTION SPATIALE DES OISEAUX MARINS DE L'OCÉAN
AUSTRAL
Par Clara Péron D'après le dernier rapport du Groupe Intergouvernemental d'Experts sur l'Evolution du Climat (GIEC), la
réalité d'un réchauffement majeur du climat est sans équivoque. Ce travail de thèse a consisté à dresser un bilan des
changements climatiques passés et récents dans l'océan Austral et à évaluer si l'impact de ces changements sur la
distribution spatiale des oiseaux marins était déjà détectable et/ou prévisible. Grâce aux données historiques d'observation
en mer par bateau sur 12 espèces d'oiseaux marins, nous avons mis en évidence une diminution d'abondance chez trois
espèces et des changements de distribution contrastés entre les années 1980 et 2000. Ces espèces ont la particularité
d'exploiter les eaux subtropicales où le réchauffement a été plus intense pendant cette période. Les suivis télémétriques
apportent des informations précieuses sur la variabilité spatio-temporelle de la distribution des zones d'alimentation.

Regards croisés sur l'avenir des forêts françaises face au changement climatique
Une nouvelle étude menée par des chercheurs de l’Université Paris-Sud, de l’INRA, du CNRS, du CEA, d’AgroParisTech et de

forêts au changement climatique et de souligner les incertitudes associées. L’objectif de l’analyse était en effet de comparer
les sorties de différentq types de modèles écologiques et de les combiner afin d’avoir des scénarii plus fiables. L’étude a
porté sur une sélection de cinq essences forestières dominantes en France. En général, les auteurs montrent que les
plaines de l'ouest, du sud-ouest et du centre de la France seront les plus fortement touchées d'ici 2050. Le changement
climatique en France compromettra l'avenir de certaines essences d'arbre en plaine, comme le pin sylvestre. Ces résultats
viennent d’être publiés dans la revue "Ecology Letters".

Recent Plant Diversity Changes on Europe’s Mountain Summits
In mountainous regions, climate warming is expected to shift species’ ranges to higher altitudes. Evidence for such shifts is
still mostly from revisitations of historical sites. We present recent (2001 to 2008) changes in vascular plant species
richness observed in a standardized monitoring network across Europe’s major mountain ranges. Species have moved
upslope on average. However, these shifts had opposite effects on the summit floras’ species richness in boreal-temperate
mountain regions (+3.9 species on average) and Mediterranean mountain regions (–1.4 species), probably because recent
climatic trends have decreased the availability of water in the European south. Because Mediterranean mountains are
particularly rich in endemic species, a continuation of these trends might shrink the European mountain flora, despite an
average increase in summit species richness across the region.

UNEP (United Nations Environmental Programme) Report: Freshwater under Threat : Pacific
Islands - Vulnerability Assessment of Freshwater Resources to Environmental Change
This study undertakes a vulnerability assessment of the freshwater resources of the Pacific Island Countries
(PICs), based on input from technical experts and regional resource managers. The approach assumes that
the vulnerability of freshwater resources is dependent upon the resources available to meet the productive,
consumptive and environment uses; the pollution and development pressures; and the management
capacity to respond to these pressures. This approach highlights the importance of drivers such as climate
variability and change, population growth, urban migration and economic development to water resource
vulnerability through their influence on the state of freshwater resources and the associated pressures.

UNEP (United Nations Environmental Programme) Resource book on IWRM (Integrated Water
Resources Management Planning Approach for Small Island Developing States (SIDS))
Year of Publication: 2012
Author: UNEP
ISB: 978-92-807-3254-2
This Resource Book makes the case for IWRM Guidelines specific to SIDS, and argues that unlike traditional
models, SIDS desiring to implement IWRM need not start with expensive and timeconsuming institutional
reforms. They can start small, using pressing water-related issues as “entry points”, and fine-tuning their
IWRM strategies from experience. This pragmatic approach towards sustainable water management promotes co-ordinated
development and management of water, land and related resources without compromising the sustainability of vital
ecosystems.
The publication contains numerous case studies of best practices of IWRM in SIDS, and a practical and logical framework of
activities at various levels—national, watershed, and community. It puts forward a SIDS IWRM Planning Cycle and
Methodology, a framework with three important pillars: stakeholder participation; continuous sensitisation and public
awareness; and the creation of scenarios.

Combien d'églises détruites dans 20 ans ? Observatoire du patrimoine religieux France
Après l'annonce du relèvement de 30% des droits à construire sur l'ensemble du territoire
français, véritable menace pour le patrimoine monumental de notre pays, l'Observatoire du
Patrimoine Religieux, association non-confessionnelle œuvrant au rayonnement et à la
préservation du patrimoine religieux français, dresse un état des lieux de la situation du
patrimoine cultuel.
En dépit de l'excellent travail de nombreux maires ou responsables des lieux de culte, ce patrimoine reste fragile et
menacé. Vols à répétition, ventes et transformations de lieux de culte, destructions et - pire encore à long terme abandons purs et simples, constituent les premières menaces. A celles-ci, la crise financière actuelle pose à moyen terme la
question du financement de l'entretien et de l'ouverture de ce patrimoine identitaire auquel les Français sont très attachés.
En effet, l'affaiblissement des finances publiques et l'endettement considérable de l'Etat et des collectivités locales sont
autant d'hypothèques sur l'avenir de l'ensemble extraordinaire des édifices cultuels français. Des milliers de monuments
religieux pourraient disparaitre d'ici à 20 ans !

European network on Cultural Management and Cultural Policy education (ENCATC)
was awarded by UNESCO the title of a UNESCO partner NGO with associate status
On 10 March 2012, ENCATC was awarded by UNESCO the title of a UNESCO partner NGO with
associate status. This important recognition was offered to ENCATC because it has proved
competence in the field of education and has a record of regular major contributions to framing
UNESCO’s objectives and implementing its programmes.
This new partnership means ENCATC will maintain effective coordination with UNESCO’s field
units and with the National Commissions for UNESCO in the various countries.
This reclassification of NGO partnership with UNESCO following the approval of new directives concerning UNESCO’s
partnership with NGOs adopted by the General Conference during its 36th session which took place in Paris from 25
October to 11 November 2011. This new statutory framework modernises, simplifies and renews the UNESCO engagement
for a stronger and more efficient partnership between UNESCO and NGOs. This initiative bears witness to UNESCO’s
determination to be more open to external partners and civil society.

Website - National Treasures - USA
They are beloved one-room local schoolhouses, inspiring national monuments, ancient sites, and modern masterpieces.
They reflect our past while enriching our future.
Today, thousands of these irreplaceable buildings, landscapes, and communities are endangered as never before. That’s
why the National Trust for Historic Preservation has launched an innovative, new campaign to save them. With the support
of thousands of local preservationists and preservation professionals from coast to coast, the National Trust is identifying
endangered National Treasures and taking action to save them. Together, we’re raising needed funds, building coalitions to
prevent demolition, fighting in the courts to save sites from deterioration, and making sure that the icons of the past
remain present with us in the future.
And you can help! The National Trust has been protecting America’s historic places for more than 60 years. Working
together, we can magnify our proven record of success in dramatic ways.
Together we can protect America’s heritage. Let’s get to work.

Cambridge Heritage Research Group Annual Seminar - Heritage Studies: Stories in the Making (28 April 2012)
- Reflections on a Conference. Cambridge University (United Kingdom)
By: Jessie Lipkowitz The 13th Annual Cambridge Heritage Seminar was held at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological
Research on Saturday 28 April 2012. The central theme was reflections on the heritage field with contributions from
Cambridge Heritage MPhil Alumni. The conference provided a unique forum for alumni, heritage practitioners and current
students to discuss their professional and personal interactions with heritage. The intent of this structure was to strengthen
our existing network as well as provide the audience with a narrative of the evolution of heritage as a field, to discuss its
present challenges, to critically evaluate and reorient current practices, and reflect on its trajectory for the future— the
story of heritage and its stories in the making.

M. Leniaud, en tant que spécialiste d'histoire de l'architecture et d'histoire du patrimoine s'est
évertué à répondre aux questions posées par l'évolution du patrimoine religieux français à cette
époque. A travers de nombreuses illustrations, il a dévoilé la complexité du sujet qui revêt aussi bien des aspects
liturgiques, artistiques, matériels ou encore financier, la liste n'étant pas exhaustive. Ce panorama a permis d'aborder des

Le patrimoine archéologique syrien est en danger : Un état de lieu de minarets, mosquées, monastères qui ont
été endommagés ou pillés - Appel à la communauté internationale
Le patrimoine archéologique syrien subit divers types de dommages et de dégradations à différents degrés, qu’il s’agisse de
monuments ou de quartiers historiques, de sites archéologiques, de musées ou de lieux de culte. Ces destructions ont
commencé dès le 15 mars 2011, date de la montée en puissance du soulèvement syrien.
Par cet appel, nous souhaitons porter ces destructions à la connaissance de tous et inviter la communauté internationale à
soutenir et accompagner l’inventaire et la dénonciation d'exactions portant atteinte à un patrimoine qui, à plus d’un titre,
concerne l'humanité toute entière.

During the first three months of 2012, prominent occasions of special importance animated the life of Iraqis, showing very
promising signs on the shorter and longer terms.
On behalf of UNESCO, I would like to congratulate the Iraqi government and citizens for their successful organization of the

le déficit atteint en 2011 des records historiques. Des casernes, des prisons, des tribunaux, de luxueux

Régime, alimentent sans interruption les colonnes de France Domaine, le service du ministère du Budget
chargé de les vendre. Aujourd’hui, de nombreux investisseurs privés attendent de cueillir le fruit mûr ! Mais jusqu'où doiton protéger notre patrimoine de la privatisation ? La vente de ce patrimoine, jugé trop coûteux à entretenir, fait office de
politique immobilière depuis cinq ans et se poursuivait dans une relative indifférence jusqu'à l'affaire, très médiatisée, de la

La diversidad cultural como agente de desarrollo en Argentina
Publicación de la Secretaría de Cultura de la Presidencia de la Nación y de UNESCO
Jorge Coscia, Secretario de Cultura, indica que “a poco más de diez años de la Declaración
Universal de la UNESCO sobre la Diversidad Cultural, surgió el proyecto [que da título a la
publicación], con el objetivo de implementar políticas públicas y culturales /.../”
Se realizaron encuentros a través de talleres organizados para reflexionar sobre
interculturalidad, desarrollo sostenible, género, medios de comunicación y bienes
culturales, entre otros temas.
Por su parte, Frédéric Vacheron, especialista del Programa de Cultura de la Oficina de UNESCO Montevideo-Multipaís para
Argentina, Paraguay y Uruguay y Representación de la UNESCO para MERCOSUR, indica que “esta Convención vino a
complementar las otras normativas específicas adoptadas por la UNESCO como resultado de más de sesenta años de labor
en pro de la diversidad cultural y el desarrollo sostenible. Estas normas universales adoptadas por los Estados parte de la
Organización van desde la valorización y preservación del patrimonio en todas sus esferas, hasta el fomento de la
creatividad como portador de identidad de individuos y comunidades. La Convención de 2005, que es la séptima y la más
reciente de estas normativas, vela para que todas las culturas tengan la posiblidad de autorrepresentarse y expresarse, a
la vez que se enriquecen mediante el contacto mutuo”.

Proceedings of the 11th International Colloquium on ancient mosaics (Uludag University Turkey - 2009)
Edited by Mustafa Şahin
ISBN 978-605-5607-81-4
Turkey is home to some of the most abundant and beautiful ancient mosaics traceable uninterruptedly
since their first emergence. Yet, there has not been serious study on this worthy cultural heritage. In
order to compensate the lack of serious studies on them Mozaik Araştırmaları Uygulama ve Araştırma
Merkezi, the Mosaic Research Center (AIEMA-Turkey), was established by Uludağ University. This book
contains 70 of the 114 papers and 10 posters presented at the 11th AIEMA International Mosaic Colloquium held in
collaboration with Association Internationale pour l’Étude de la Mosaïque Antique (AIEMA), on October 16th-20th 2009 at
the Bursa Ördekli Cultural Center by 150 participants from 20 different countries. The colloquium was supported by the
Uludağ University Rectorship, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Bursa Governorship, the Metropolitan Municipality of

Cultural Heritage and Prisoners of War: Creativity Behind Barbed Wire
Book edited by Gilly Carr and Harold Mytum
ISBN: 978-0-415-52215-1
Published: March 2012
Following on from a successful conference at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research in 2010,
this book focuses on the numerous examples of creativity produced by POWs and civilian internees during
their captivity, including: paintings, cartoons, craftwork, needlework, acting, musical compositions,
magazine and newspaper articles, wood carving, and recycled Red Cross tins turned into plates, mugs and
makeshift stoves, all which have previously received little attention. The authors of this volume show the wide potential of
such items to inform us about the daily life and struggle for survival behind barbed wire. Previously dismissed as items
which could only serve to illustrate POW memoirs and diaries, this book argues for a central role of all items of creativity in
helping us to understand the true experience of life in captivity. The international authors draw upon a rich seam of
material from their own case studies of POW and civilian internment camps across the world, to offer a range of
interpretations of this diverse and extraordinary material.

Stickwork / Patrick Dougherty
Patrick Dougherty is best known for his sculptures that break down over time. You may have
seen one of his temporary works without realizing it. Built primarily from tree saplings woven
together, each sculptures is approximately a three-week construction project where
Dougherty and his group of volunteers carefully create the habitat or environment of this a
tangled web of all natural materials. Because the sculptures are made of organic matter they
disintegrate, break down and fall apart, becoming part of the landscape once again.

Funding Sought to Restore Dan Kiley Masterwork at
NationsBank Plaza - Tampa - Florida - USA
In 2006 the Kiley Garden (formerly NationsBank Plaza) was
featured on Landslide, The Cultural Landscape Foundation's annual
list of at-risk and threatened landscapes, and the future of the site
was very much in doubt. Now, the 2-level garage structure that sits
beneath the garden has undergone a $4.3 million renovation and
the Tampa City Council is seeking funds to complete restoration of
the park.

Sur les traces des voyageurs d'autrefois : le projet VIATICALPES à l'Université de
Lausanne (Suisse)
Tôt après l'invention de l'imprimerie, les récits de voyage ont fait leur apparition. Illustrés et
commentés, ils offrent l'équivalent de photographies du territoire et des coutumes bien avant
l'invention de la photographie elle-même. L'Université de Lausanne a entrepris de mettre en
valeur les trésors accumulés depuis 400 ans dans les bibliothèques de Suisse et même d'audelà, par le projet Viaticalpes.
Des milliers de gravures et d'illustrations réparties du 16 ième au 19 ième siècle permettent
de remonter le temps, de voir l'évolution, de retrouver des traces, de reconstituer l'histoire des lieux et de ceux qui y sont
passés. Les possibilités sont immenses. À voir.

European Network of Local&Regional Authorities for the Implementation of the European
Landscape Convention (Recep-Enelc): Working landscapes - Landscape Strategies in Spain: A
compared analysis
Since its creation, one of RECEP-ENELC's goals has been offering its members technical assistance in order
to support the development of the landscape policies which are carried out in their territories. To this end,
it counts with a Technical Co-ordination Board which is a technical body made up of some of the members
of the network.
Among the functions of the Board, the production of technical and scientific documents based on the
political and administrative experience of its members can be highlighted. The aim of these documents is sharing
information and experiences, disseminating the acquired knowledge, promoting co-operation among members and finally,
pushing forward the European Landscape Convention at the local and regional scale throughout Europe.
In order to disseminate the work of the Board, RECEP-ENELC launches the Working Landscapes series, a collection of
monographic technical documents gathering specific experiences developed by members.

Revue du patrimoine mondial N°62 - Patrimoine mondial et peuples autochtones
ISSN 1020-4520
EAN 3059630102629
Les populations autochtones possèdent une connexion puissante et intime avec les terres sur lesquelles
elles vivent. Leur identité culturelle façonne (et est façonnée à son tour par) leur environnement naturel.
Les cultures riches et les pratiques traditionnelles de ces populations, ainsi que les problématiques
qu’elles rencontrent dans le monde actuel, réfèrent à de nombreuses sphères telles que le développement
économique, l’environnement et les droits de l’homme. L’article principal rédigé par M. Tumu te Heuheu,
Grand Chef de la tribu maorie Ngati Tuwharetoa de Nouvelle-Zélande, ancien Président du Comité du patrimoine mondial,
et M. Richard Tuheiava, Sénateur français représentant de la Polynésie française, abordera les questions clefs et les défis
liés aux populations autochtones et au patrimoine mondial. Cet article apportera de précieuses informations sur les
politiques en matière de questions autochtones.
Ce numéro traitera entre autres du peuple saami de Laponie, en Suède, et du peuple nama du Paysage culturel et
botanique du Richtersveld en Afrique du Sud qui continuent de pratiquer un style de vie semi-nomade fondé sur la
transhumance saisonnière de leurs troupeaux.

Conceptualising heritage through the maritime lens: a heritage ethnography of maritime
Bermuda
By Charlotte Andrews
Published in the International Journal of Heritage Studies, in the 2012 Special Issue 'Memory in the
Maritime Museum: Objects, Narratives, Identities'
This article presents the key findings of recent maritime heritage research in Bermuda. It recounts the
essential ways contemporary Bermudians use their relationships with the sea to formulate identity and
community and thereby generate maritime heritage. The summarised single-region, grassroots-orientated,
maritime-themed heritage ethnography examines relationships with past and present maritimes; remembrance and
forgetting of ‘race’ and its legacies; beliefs in authenticity; curatorial practices of community museology; and aspirational
remedies to social crisis. Together, these five ethnographic dimensions offer a holistic and realistic picture of maritime
heritage in this mid-Atlantic community. This overview encapsulates and expands upon this ethnographic analysis of
maritime heritage and examines its contribution to heritage and museum studies.

Contributions from the participants of the International course on First Aid to Cultural Heritage in Times of
Conflict.
During the course, each participant gave short presentations about the protection of endangered cultural
heritage, focusing on their regional, national or professional context. These presentations were so
appreciated by both groups that the participants themselves suggested that a publication should be
prepared to collect all these experiences and share them with the rest of the world.

collections de photographies conservées en France. En commençant d’abord par les
collections de la Direction générale des Patrimoines et celles des établissements
publics du ministère de la Culture et de la Communication. Puis Arago s’ouvrira
progressivement à d’autres ensembles et fonds, tant publics (établissements
publics, collectivités locales), que privés (associations, fondations, fonds d’auteurs,
collections).
Ce portail porte le nom de l’astronome et homme politique français, François Arago (1786-1853) qui a révélé, en août
1839, devant les Académies des Sciences et des Beaux-Arts réunies, le procédé de Daguerre et en a proposé l’acquisition
par l’État pour l’offrir symboliquement au monde.

A first look at the Biodiversity Heritage Library-Europe portal
The Biodiversity Heritage Library for Europe aims to make early published biodiversity literature accessible to anyone who’s
interested. One of the most important access points to this content will be the BHL-Europe portal, which will be available in
no less than 12 languages! The portal’s development now nears its end – and it’s high time we take a look at the

Les archives de Michel Foucault sanctuarisées « trésor national »
Les 37 000 feuillets, manuscrits et textes dactylographiés que constituent les archives de Michel Foucault
ont été classés « trésor national » par le ministère de la Culture. Cette mesure préventive vise à interdire
leur vente à l’étranger.
Pour s’assurer que les archives de Michel Foucault ne quittent pas le territoire, l’État français a décidé de
les classer « trésor national » samedi 14 avril, par un avis publié au Journal Officiel. Saisie par le
ministère de la Culture, la Commission consultative des Trésors nationaux avait fait valoir que les 37 000
feuillets, manuscrits et textes dactylographiés sont « sans équivalent pour la connaissance de son œuvre
». Ces documents couvrent la quarantaine d’années d’activité du philosophe et permettent de dresser l’évolution de sa
pensée.

La British Library acquiert un Evangile du VIIe siècle pour 11 millions d'euros Londres (Royaume-Uni)
Le livre tient dans la paume de la main. Si petit qu’il soit, cet ouvrage religieux, datant du VIIe
siècle, est le plus ancien qui ait survécu jusqu’à aujourd’hui. Il a été acheté 9 millions de livres
(presque 11 millions d’euros) par la British Library.
L’ouvrage, relié de cuir rouge richement décoré d’entrelacs, mesure 9,6 x 13,6 cm. Il s’agit
d’une copie manuscrite en latin de l’Evangile selon saint Jean. Appelé Evangile de saint
Cuthbert, il a été réalisé au monastère de l’île de Lindisfarne (Nord Est de l’Angleterre) à la fin
du VIIe siècle. Enfermé dans le cercueil de saint Cuthbert, ce dernier est déplacé lorsque les Vikings envahissent
Lindisfarne. Arrivé à Durham, le cercueil est ouvert en 1104 ; on y découvre l’Evangile…

Social Network : Pinterest for Heritage - Europeana's Experiment
Some say it is just another one of those social net-work hypes, while many others claim
it is a bandwagon that every brand should be pouncing on. One thing is for sure, the
recent buzz and excitement surrounding Pinterest is massive and without a doubt hard
to miss. If you are one of the few that are still not familiar with ‘pinning’ — you will be
soon.
Pinterest is a social network that responds to what us humans do naturally: collect
things we like. It allows its users (now over 11 million) to create and share virtual ‘pin
boards’ of images and videos that they find on the web or from their computer. Add to that the social dimension of the web
and ‘et voilà’ - success is imminent.

The European Commission is to fund the development of Linked Data tools that will enable more libraries and
archives to provide digital content to Europeana
Europe's largest cultural heritage portal. Funding has also been allocated for the development of tools that will enable
innovative re-use of Europeana data in teaching and research contexts.
The software to be developed will allow for the contextualisation and linking of vast cultural heritage data sets drawn from
some of Europe's most prominent memory institutions. This will in turn allow scholars, students and the wider public to
interact with with cultural objects and their associated metadata in innovative ways.

Presentations and resources from the seminar entitled 'In safe
hands? Guaranteeing our collections for future generations' British Library, London (United Kingdom) 3 February 2012
A Research Libraries UK and Preservation Advisory Centre joint seminar
for RLUK members which explored the relationship between research
libraries' approaches to preservation and conservation and the wider
context of their overall strategy for collection management.
This one day seminar examined how research libraries are addressing
collections issues in terms of decision making, risk assessment and prioritisation. Speakers presented on using preservation
as a strategy now and in the future; using digital surrogates as a preservation strategy; issues around disposal and the
need to preserve the national collection. The seminar consisted of a mixture of presentations and breakout discussion
sessions and provided the opportunity to consider ways to take forward the work completed as part of the jointly funded
three-year Preservation Learning Project which ends in March 2012.

State aid: Commission approves France’s plan to digitise its film heritage
This scheme is in line with the Commission’s policy for the preservation and dissemination of Europe’s cultural heritage.
The digitisation of film heritage should help to enhance the distribution of European films, interoperability and accessibility
to collections, in particular by way of the EU public digital library Europeana (http://www.europeana.eu/portal/), in
accordance with the principles highlighted in the Digital Agenda for Europe (see IP/10/581).
The breakthrough represented by digital technology impacts the dissemination of heritage among the public and its
transmission from one generation to the next. In order for the public to continue to have access to certain cultural works,
especially old films, which are not available in a suitable technical format, the restoration and digitisation of these works is
essential.

Syracuse University Unveils First Phase of Marcel Breuer Digital Archive - Syracuise,
New York State (USA)
Marcel Breuer, born in Hungary in 1902, was educated under the Bauhaus manifesto of “total
construction”; this is likely why Breuer is well known for both his furniture designs as well as his
numerous works of architecture, which ranged from small residences to monumental architecture
and governmental buildings. His career flourished during the Modernist period in conjunction with
architects and designers such as founder of Bauhaus Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier and Mies van
der Rohe.
In 2009, Syracuse University’s Special Collection Research Center recieved a National Endowment for the Humanities grant
with which it began creating the Marcel Breuer Digital Archive. The digital archive, available online, is a collaborative effort
headed by the library and includes institutions such as the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin, the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau, the
Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich, Harvard University, the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian
Institution, the University of East Anglia, and the Vitra Design Museum. It is in the first phase, which includes Breuer work

British Council announces digitisation of over 120 unique films from its own archive
- London (United Kingdom)
Over 120 films providing fascinating snapshots of the UK’s cultural, sporting, industrial and
political heritage have been launched online to the public today thanks to funding from
Google and the British Council. The films are from the British Council’s own film archive
which dates back to late 1939 – and give an insight not only into a bygone age, but also
serve to capture how cultural relations has changed. For several decades, the Council was an
enthusiastic commissioner and distributor of documentaries, designed to showcase Britain to
the outside world and promote democratic values at a time when fascism was spreading across Europe. The films were
largely shown at embassies, consulates and to students and schoolchildren around the world.

Amateur sleuth helps stop National Archives and Records Administration thefts Washington D.C. (USA)
When J. David Goldin saw the recorded interview of baseball great Babe Ruth for sale on
eBay he knew something was wrong. There was only one original record of that 1937
interview of Ruth on a hunting trip, and Goldin had donated it to a government archive more
than 30 years ago. Now someone was auctioning it off, the winning bid just $34.75. "I took
one look at the record label and I said, 'holy smokes, that's my record,'" said the retired
radio engineer. From his home in Connecticut, filled with antique radios and tape reels,
Goldin launched an amateur sleuthing effort that helped uncover a thief ripping off the country's most important repository
of historical records. The heist turned out to be an inside job. The culprit was the recently retired head of the video and
sound branch of the National Archives and Records Administration — the government agency entrusted with preserving
such documents as the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.

The essays in this volume shed new light on the birth of a medium. Jeffrey Cody and Frances Terpak,
together with Edwin Lai, discuss the medium’s evolution, commercialization, and dissemination; Wu
Hung examines the invention of a portrait style through the lens of Milton Miller; Sarah Fraser
investigates how this style shaped China’s national image; and Wen-hsin Yeh addresses the camera’s
role in Republican Shanghai and wartime Chongqing. The catalogue accompanies an exhibition of the same name at the J.

Getty Conservation Institute: Demonstration Assessment of Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Retrofit Lamps
Final Report prepared in support of the U.S. DOE Solid-State Lighting Technology Demonstration GATEWAY Program
This document is a report of observations and results obtained from a lighting demonstration project conducted under the
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) GATEWAY Demonstration Program. The program supports demonstrations of highperformance solid-state lighting (SSL) products in order to develop empirical data and experience with in-the-field
applications of this advanced lighting technology. The DOE GATEWAY Demonstration Program focuses on providing a
source of independent, third-party data for use in decision-making by lighting users and professionals; this data should be
considered in combination with other information relevant to the particular site and application under examination. Each
GATEWAY Demonstration compares SSL products against the incumbent technologies used in that location. Depending on
available information and circumstances, the SSL product may also be compared to alternate lighting technologies. Though
products demonstrated in the GATEWAY program may have been prescreened for performance, DOE does not endorse any
commercial product or in any way guarantee that users will achieve the same results through use of these products.

Le Net Art au musée. Stratégies de conservation des oeuvres en ligne
Auteur: Anne Laforest
Éditeur: Questions théoriques - Niveau : Universitaire
ISBN: 978-2917131046
Le net art - la création artistique par et pour Internet - rejoint depuis quelques années les collections des
musées, posant de nouvelles et complexes questions de conservation et d'exposition.
D'une part, les matériaux numériques de ces oeuvres sont fragiles; d'autre part, le déploiement complet de
leur dispositif suppose qu'elles soient en ligne et activées par leurs visiteurs. Il faut donc tenir compte à la
fois de la matérialité particulière des oeuvres et de la façon dont la conservation dialogue avec les autres fonctions du
musée.
Anne Laforet présente et interroge les différentes stratégies de conservation expérimentées par les musées, les archives,
les artistes, etc. Documentation, émulation, migration, partition, ré-interprétation, auto-archivage, archivage automatique
et en tire la proposition d'une conservation hybride, celle du " musée archéologique ".

Numbers of young scientists declining in Japan. Government policies are
hampering the country's next generation of research leaders, advisory body says.
Junior researchers are being squeezed out of Japanese universities by government policies
aimed at cutting costs. The claim, from the Council for Science and Technology Policy
(CSTP), the government’s top advisory body on science, is raising concerns that the
country’s next generation of scientific leaders is under threat and that the trend may already
be harming research productivity.
The CSTP analysis comes from a draft report on Japan's science and technology activities
scheduled for publication in the next several weeks. It points out that although the number of tenured and contract faculty
at publicly funded universities has grown from around 50,000 to 63,000 over the past 30 years, the number of faculty
under 35 has plunged from more than 10,000 to 6,800…

Site web - The Civil War in Art: Teaching & Learning through Chicago Collections. Chicago,
Illinois (USA)
"The Civil War in Art: Teaching and Learning through Chicago Collections" is intended to help teachers and
students learn about the Civil War—its causes and effects—and connect to the issues, events, and people
of the era through works of art.
The website was initiated, funded, and developed by the Chicago-based Terra Foundation for American Art
in acknowledgement of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War (1861–1865). From 2010 to 2012,
the Terra Foundation collaborated with six Chicago cultural organizations on the project. Each partner
contributed images from its collection along with written descriptions, questions for discussion, and additional reading
sources. Content specialists from DePaul University curated the selection of objects and wrote the Exhibit texts and
selected object descriptions. Terra Foundation staff contributed to the writing and editing of the Exhibit texts, object
descriptions, and other content in collaboration with the partners and content specialists.

European network on Cultural Management and Cultural Policy education (ENCATC)
was awarded by UNESCO the title of a UNESCO partner NGO with associate status
On 10 March 2012, ENCATC was awarded by UNESCO the title of a UNESCO partner NGO with
associate status. This important recognition was offered to ENCATC because it has proved
competence in the field of education and has a record of regular major contributions to framing
UNESCO’s objectives and implementing its programmes.
This new partnership means ENCATC will maintain effective coordination with UNESCO’s field
units and with the National Commissions for UNESCO in the various countries.
This reclassification of NGO partnership with UNESCO following the approval of new directives concerning UNESCO’s
partnership with NGOs adopted by the General Conference during its 36th session which took place in Paris from 25
October to 11 November 2011. This new statutory framework modernises, simplifies and renews the UNESCO engagement
for a stronger and more efficient partnership between UNESCO and NGOs. This initiative bears witness to UNESCO’s
determination to be more open to external partners and civil society.

De Versailles à Gondar, les élèves explorent les fastes royaux
Quel point commun y a-t-il entre la ville de Gondar en Ethiopie et celle de Versailles en France ? L'une est située en Afrique
et l'autre en Europe et pourtant elles présentent des similitudes historiques mises au jour par le projet pédagogique
"Dessine-moi un château".
En effet, Gondar et Versailles ont connu un essor important au 17ème siècle, chefs-lieux de deux royaumes dirigés à
l'époque par deux puissants souverains chrétiens : Iyassou le Grand et Louis XIV. En 2010, les élèves de Gondar et du
département des Yvelines ont participé au projet pédagogique susmentionné pour découvrir les similitudes et différences de
ces deux sites exceptionnels.

Volunteer student labour available via Deakin University - Melbourne, Victoria (Australia)
Do you have a project – cataloguing, picture management, even data entry – which could give a volunteer student
exposure to the workings of a heritage business or organisation? If you do, Deakin Cultural Heritage & Museum Studies
program has postgraduates (predominantly sensible grown–ups) who would love to observe and learn from you.
We have students based around the nation – not just Melbourne or Victoria. They know that job experience is even more
critical than credentials in getting into the heritage trade – every little bit counts on a beginner-CV. And if you can become
a contact, a referee, a mentor, even a friend, you will have helped that student take steps into the heritage scene, which
matters almost as much…

Cambridge Heritage Research Group Annual Seminar - Heritage Studies: Stories in the Making (28 April 2012)
- Reflections on a Conference. Cambridge University (United Kingdom)
By: Jessie Lipkowitz The 13th Annual Cambridge Heritage Seminar was held at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological
Research on Saturday 28 April 2012. The central theme was reflections on the heritage field with contributions from
Cambridge Heritage MPhil Alumni. The conference provided a unique forum for alumni, heritage practitioners and current
students to discuss their professional and personal interactions with heritage. The intent of this structure was to strengthen
our existing network as well as provide the audience with a narrative of the evolution of heritage as a field, to discuss its
present challenges, to critically evaluate and reorient current practices, and reflect on its trajectory for the future— the
story of heritage and its stories in the making.

Interarts y la red Proyecta Cultura acaban de publicar el informe “Acceso de los jóvenes a la cultural en
Iberoamérica : Tendencias, obstáculos y experiencias”, resultado de una investigación realizada en 12
Estados iberoamericanos durante 2011. En cada uno de los países analizados, corresponsales locals
describieron los marcos institucionales y jurídicos relativos al acceso de los jóvenes a la cultura, las
tendencias actuales en este ámbito y diversos casos de estudio, y recogieron testimonios de jóvenes en relación con su
percepción de la vida cultural.
Posteriormente, un equipo de redacción analizó los datos en conjunto para elaborar el informe final. El proyecto ha estado
financiado por la Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo (AECID) y sirve de base para la
realización de nuevas acciones en el marco de Proyecta Cultura, en las que participa Interarts.

Une forêt jeune chargée d'histoire - Verdun (France)
La forêt domaniale de Verdun a été créée au lendemain de la Première Guerre mondiale
sur l’ancien champ de bataille. Elle englobe pour l’essentiel d’anciennes terres agricoles
dévastées et déclarées impropres à l'agriculture par les autorités, mais aussi des zones
autrefois boisées.
Située à proximité de Verdun, ce haut lieu de mémoire de presque 10.000 ha, accueille
chaque année de nombreux visiteurs. Profondément marquée par la Grande Guerre,
dont elle porte encore les séquelles, la forêt a évolué au fil des ans et des interventions
forestières. Elle abrite aujourd'hui des espèces animales et végétales protégées. Elle est gérée par l’Office national des

Quel avenir pour les forêts françaises face au changement climatique ?
Ecology Letters vient de publier les résultats d'une étude menée par un groupe de chercheurs de
l'Université Paris-Sud, de l'INRA, du CNRS, du CEA, d'AgroParisTech et de l'Université Joseph Fourier
de Grenoble. Réalisés dans la cadre du projet QDIV et soutenus par l'Agence Nationale de la Recherche
(ANR) et le GIS "Climat, Environnement, Société", ces travaux ont permis d'évaluer, à partir de huit
modèles écologiques de dernière génération, la réponse des forêts, et plus particulièrement de cinq
essences forestières dominantes en France, au changement climatique, mais aussi de souligner les
incertitudes qui subsistent dans les prévisions. Difficile en effet de prédire l'impact du changement
climatique sans disposer d'une meilleure connaissance des effets directs de l'augmentation de la teneur en CO2
atmosphérique sur la végétation, d'autant plus quand on sait que de fortes teneurs en CO2 peuvent protéger les arbres
contre la sécheresse…

Étude multi-échelles des précipitations et du couvert végétal au Cameroun : Analyses spatiales, tendances
temporelles, facteurs climatiques et anthropiques de variabilité du NDVI (Normalized DifferenceVegetation
Index)
Par Viviane Djoufack De par sa géométrie et sa situation géographique (2°N-13°N - 8°E-16°E ; ouverture sur l'océan
Atlantique), le Cameroun offre l'avantage de proposer un ensemble représentatif des climats régionaux rencontrés en
Afrique tropicale. La diminution des cumuls de précipitations enregistrée dans la région pendant la seconde moitié du XXe
siècle, est associée à la récurrence de périodes anormalement sèches, essentiellement au coeur de la saison des pluies. Ces
conditions ont amplifié la dégradation du couvert végétal au travers ses contraintes socioéconomiques et démographiques
(déforestation, extension des surfaces d'activité). Les conséquences souvent dommageables de la variabilité climatique en
général, et des sécheresses en particulier, sur les hommes et leurs activités suscitent l'intérêt de développer des études
pour mieux comprendre comment le climat et les pressions naturelles et environnementales interagissent localement.

Regards croisés sur l'avenir des forêts françaises face au changement climatique
Une nouvelle étude menée par des chercheurs de l’Université Paris-Sud, de l’INRA, du CNRS, du CEA, d’AgroParisTech et de
l’Université Joseph Fourier de Grenoble a permis d’évaluer, à partir de huit modèles de dernière génération, la réponse des
forêts au changement climatique et de souligner les incertitudes associées. L’objectif de l’analyse était en effet de comparer
les sorties de différentq types de modèles écologiques et de les combiner afin d’avoir des scénarii plus fiables. L’étude a
porté sur une sélection de cinq essences forestières dominantes en France. En général, les auteurs montrent que les
plaines de l'ouest, du sud-ouest et du centre de la France seront les plus fortement touchées d'ici 2050. Le changement
climatique en France compromettra l'avenir de certaines essences d'arbre en plaine, comme le pin sylvestre. Ces résultats
viennent d’être publiés dans la revue "Ecology Letters".

Découverte d'oeufs fossiles de dinosaures en Tchétchénie - Fédération de Russie
Les participants d'une expédition géologique dans la république nord-caucasienne de Tchétchénie ont découvert un groupe
d'oeufs fossiles dans le district de Charoïski.
L'équipe a trouvé une quarantaine d'oeufs avec des diamètres de 24 à 100 cm. " L'image d'une section montre que sa
coquille, le jaune et l'albumen sont bien délimités. Nous avons pris plusieurs échantillons pour vérifier la composition
chimique et physique " a indiqué M. Dzhabrailov de l'université d'Etat de Tchétchénie.
Les scientifiques pensent que ces oeufs sont ceux de dinosaures herbivores vivants il y a environ 60 millions d'années.

Subduction dynamics and the origin of Andean orogeny and the Bolivian orocline
The building of the Andes results from the subduction of the oceanic Nazca plate underneath the South American continent.
However, how and why the Andes and their curvature, the Bolivian orocline, formed in the Cenozoic era (65.5 million years
(Myr) ago to present), despite subduction continuing since the Mesozoic era (251.0–65.5 Myr ago), is still unknown. Threedimensional numerical subduction models demonstrate that variations in slab thickness, arising from the Nazca plate’s age
at the trench, produce a cordilleran morphology consistent with that observed…

Conceptualising heritage through the maritime lens: a heritage ethnography of maritime
Bermuda
By Charlotte Andrews
Published in the International Journal of Heritage Studies, in the 2012 Special Issue 'Memory in the
Maritime Museum: Objects, Narratives, Identities'
This article presents the key findings of recent maritime heritage research in Bermuda. It recounts the
essential ways contemporary Bermudians use their relationships with the sea to formulate identity and
community and thereby generate maritime heritage. The summarised single-region, grassroots-orientated,
maritime-themed heritage ethnography examines relationships with past and present maritimes; remembrance and
forgetting of ‘race’ and its legacies; beliefs in authenticity; curatorial practices of community museology; and aspirational
remedies to social crisis. Together, these five ethnographic dimensions offer a holistic and realistic picture of maritime
heritage in this mid-Atlantic community. This overview encapsulates and expands upon this ethnographic analysis of
maritime heritage and examines its contribution to heritage and museum studies.

makeshift stoves, all which have previously received little attention. The authors of this volume show the wide potential of
such items to inform us about the daily life and struggle for survival behind barbed wire. Previously dismissed as items
which could only serve to illustrate POW memoirs and diaries, this book argues for a central role of all items of creativity in
helping us to understand the true experience of life in captivity. The international authors draw upon a rich seam of
material from their own case studies of POW and civilian internment camps across the world, to offer a range of
interpretations of this diverse and extraordinary material.

Sarajevo museums under siege - Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina’s major cultural institutions, including the National Gallery and the
National Museum, which are both in the capital Sarajevo, are in danger of closing indefinitely
due to a lack of funding and government support. Staff, many of whom have been not been
paid for months, have responded by organising events and exhibitions to bring attention to
the crisis. The situation stems from the country’s dysfunctional administrative system and
the lack of a national cultural ministry.

US museums rebuild but fears of relapse linger - Directors' optimism tempered by
sluggish economy and slow recovery of investments (USA)
Leading US museums are finally in recovery mode and their directors are much more
optimistic about the financial outlook than a year ago, but few are feeling bullish.
Endowments may have increased but they have not regained their peak of 2007. Of the ten
richest museums we surveyed, seven were within sight of their previous levels, but the
wealthiest, the Getty Trust, is only a third of the way to the $1.8bn it lost during the
downturn (see table, p10). The road to financial health will be long for all but a fortunate
few, and many fear that the economic recovery may prove short-lived. Nevertheless, many directors describe themselves
as “cautiously optimistic”.

Art Fund calls on Government to drop plan to cap charitable donations - United
Kingdom
The Art Fund has joined forces with other charities to call on the Government to drop its plan
to introduce a cap on tax relief on donations to charity. Director Stephen Deuchar said the
plan would have a ‘devastating impact’ on planned fundraising appeals.
The Chancellor announced in the March Budget that from April 2013 tax relief on charitable
donations will be capped at £50,000 or 25% of income. This will deter the most generous
givers, and will have a disproportionate impact on the arts, museums and cultural charities,
which are often dependent on a small pool of larger-value donors…

Call to close every other museum raises storm in Germany - Artists respond
that the call to close every other museum would "destroy the base of the
public funding of culture"
A call by a group of academics and cultural commentators to close every second statesubsidised cultural institution—in particular art museums and theatres—in response to
the economic downturn has provoked a robust response from German artists,
filmmakers and writers. The proposal, by the consultant and director of the Centre for
Cultural Research think tank in Berlin, Dieter Haselbach, the director of the statefunded Swiss arts council, Pro Helvetia, Pius Knüsel, and academics Armin Klein, and Stephan Opitz (also an official at the
ministry of culture in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein), was set out in the recent book Der Kulturinfarkt (Cultural
Heart Attack) as well as in an article in the German magazine Der Spiegel. In an open letter under the banner of “Akademie
der Künste” (Academy of Arts), artists including Rosemarie Trockel, Klaus Staeck and Harun Farocki, along with the
filmmaker Wim Wenders and the author Günter Grass wrote: “[We] protest against this… infringement of a taboo, which
destroys the base of the public funding of culture. [It is] an unequalled attempt to discredit the publicly funded support of
culture.” The letter also referred to “a late exhalation of neo-liberal thinking”.

Zaha Hadid’s Maxxi Museum faces Closure two years after its Opening - Rome
(Italy)
Just two years after its opening, the Maxxi Museum in Rome is threatened with closure. The
country’s current economic crisis has resulted in major cuts in cultural funding, causing a
great deal of stress on the arts. As BD reports, earlier this month the museum was told that
the government’s contribution to its €11 million budget would fall to less than €2 million for
2012. Now, as the museum officials failed to set a budget for 2013, the government has
reportedly begun proceedings to put the high-profile museum under special administration.
Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the 2010 Stirling Prize winning national art and architecture museum has attracted
more than 450,000 visitors per year. Hadid has described the museum’s success as “remarkable”, as it quickly built a
prestigious, international reputation within the world of contemporary art.
As reported by the Guardian, problems arose once the Italian government uncovered a €800,000 hole in Maxxi’s 2011
accounts. Although the museum stated that this amount was offset by 2010 profits, the Italian government is considering
putting the museum in the hands of administrators and will reveal the museums fate within the next few weeks.

La British Library acquiert un Evangile du VIIe siècle pour 11 millions d'euros Londres (Royaume-Uni)
Le livre tient dans la paume de la main. Si petit qu’il soit, cet ouvrage religieux, datant du VIIe
siècle, est le plus ancien qui ait survécu jusqu’à aujourd’hui. Il a été acheté 9 millions de livres
(presque 11 millions d’euros) par la British Library.
L’ouvrage, relié de cuir rouge richement décoré d’entrelacs, mesure 9,6 x 13,6 cm. Il s’agit
d’une copie manuscrite en latin de l’Evangile selon saint Jean. Appelé Evangile de saint
Cuthbert, il a été réalisé au monastère de l’île de Lindisfarne (Nord Est de l’Angleterre) à la fin
du VIIe siècle. Enfermé dans le cercueil de saint Cuthbert, ce dernier est déplacé lorsque les Vikings envahissent
Lindisfarne. Arrivé à Durham, le cercueil est ouvert en 1104 ; on y découvre l’Evangile…

Le Getty de Los Angeles cherche de nouvelles sources de

Confrontés à des baisses de budget, le Musée va concentrer ses
ressources sur ses « missions essentielles ».
Adossé à la fondation d'art la plus riche du monde, le Getty de Los
Angeles n'est cependant pas à l'abri de la crise. Malgré des débuts

l’importance va croissante depuis juillet 2008. « Deux forces

le Musée à recentrer ses ressources sur ses « missions essentielles » : l'exposition et la conservation des oeuvres, les

500-year-old painting back to Jewish family - Tallahassee - Florida -USA
A 500-year-old painting auctioned by the French government during the Nazi occupation in World War
II is back in the hands of a Jewish family who proved it was sold illegally. U.S. authorities in
Tallahassee on Wednesday signed paperwork to return the 16th century Baroque painting to
representatives of the family of Federico Gentili di Giuseppe. He died in 1940 shortly before the Nazis
occupied France. The Vichy government sold the painting, but the sale has been deemed illegal. The
family plans to auction "Christ Carrying the Cross" later this year. It could fetch up to $3.5 million. U.S.
authorities seized the painting from a Florida museum in November after discovering the family had
been seeking its return. A federal judge in February ordered that the painting be returned to the family.

Art&Tourism: relaunching culture in Italy and throughout the world - Cultural
tourism is not suffering a recession, but it is often considered something
unimportant
We need a real Copernican revolution in the relationship between development and

burdensome unproductive goods like “leftovers from a glorious past,” which have to be
maintained and must once again become crucial for the consolidation of a public

The Heritage Lottery Fund gives lead support to save Manet's Portrait of Mademoiselle Claus
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has announced its lead support of the Ashmolean Museum’s campaign to
save Edouard Manet’s Portrait of Mademoiselle Claus, 1868, for the public with a major grant of £5.9 million.
Since launching the campaign in February, the Ashmolean has also been awarded a significant grant from
The Art Fund of £750,000, along with £200,000 of gifts from individuals and The Friends of the Ashmolean.
The painting has been sold to a foreign buyer for £28.35 million but, under a private treaty sale, with tax
remission it can be purchased by an approved UK public collection at the greatly reduced price of £7.83
million. The Ashmolean has until 7 August 2012, before the export bar ends, to raise the remaining
£908,000 to acquire the painting. The portrait is a preparatory study for Le Balcon (1868–9) now in the Musée d’Orsay one of the key images of the Impressionist movement. Having previously been exhibited only once since it was painted, it
is currently on display in the Museum’s Impressionist Gallery…

The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia reaches 100,000 visitors three weeks after its reopening - Sydney,
New South Wales (Australia)
MCA Director Elizabeth Ann Macgregor says: “These figures are a true testament to the success of the redevelopment. The
Galleries and National Centre for Creative Learning are bustling with people, the MCA Cafe and Store are thriving and I am
delighted to say that everywhere I turn, I see crowds interacting with art. The enthusiastic response to the redevelopment
is evident everywhere. Sam Marshall’s response to the need for a more open and accessible MCA has clearly struck a
chord.”
The redevelopment stemmed from the Museum’s exponential audience growth, that itself bore witness to the increased
interest in contemporary art. Upon completion of the $53 million transformation, the MCA’s vision to facilitate access for
everyone from school groups to people with disabilities turned into a reality and, says Elizabeth Ann Macgregor, “one that I
am extremely proud of. The MCA is back and it is positively brimming with energy.”

Crocker Art Museum receives long-term loan and future gift of paintings by
California's premier Impressionist - Sacramento, California (USA)
The Crocker Art Museum, which houses one of the country’s largest collections of Californian
art, is pleased to announce it will be the recipient of a comprehensive collection by the
Golden State’s foremost Impressionist painter, Guy Rose. “Guy Rose was as important to
California as Monet was to France,” explains Scott A. Shields, the Crocker Art Museum’s
Associate Director and Chief Curator. “He is nationally recognized as one of the most
significant American artists of his generation.” Guy Rose was perhaps best known for his
landscapes, but was equally skilled at painting still lifes and the figure. His deft touch and approach to color were influenced
by French example more so than any other artist of the American West. The collection will feature nearly 40 of Rose’s
paintings representing the breadth of the artist’s styles, subjects, and achievements, from an early figurative painting
shown at the Paris Salon to his final Monterey landscapes.

Amherst College's Mead Art Museum receives $1,000,000 Endowment Challenge
Grant - Amherst, Massachusetts (USA)
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded Amherst College’s Mead Art Museum a
$1,000,000 matching grant to endow its Coordinator of College Programs position and
thereby ensure the continuation of the museum’s successful initiatives to integrate the
college’s art collection meaningfully into its curriculum. As a condition of the grant, Amherst
College has committed to raise a minimum of $1,000,000 within three years. The college
seeks to raise an additional $500,000 to underwrite the museum-based academic programs,
overseen by the Coordinator, that engage 90 percent of Amherst’s student body each year. The matching grant follows a
previous grant of $500,000 that the Foundation awarded to the Mead in December 2008 to create a position for a
Coordinator of College Programs, a museum-based scholar charged with spurring and facilitating curricular engagement
with the collection. The 2008 grant also launched an ongoing series of semiannual faculty seminars in which visiting experts
“teach the teachers” about specific areas of the college’s wide-ranging, fine-quality art collection; established stipends for
faculty guest curators of collection-based exhibitions; and piloted a program of two-year post-baccalaureate curatorial
fellowships.

Civil War shipwreck in the way of Georgia port project - Savannah, Georgia (USA)
Before government engineers can deepen one of the nation's busiest seaports to
accommodate future trade, they first need to remove a $14 million obstacle from the past —
a Confederate warship rotting on the Savannah River bottom for nearly 150 years.
Confederate troops scuttled the ironclad CSS Georgia to prevent its capture by Gen. William
T. Sherman when his Union troops took Savannah in December 1864. It's been on the river
bottom ever since. Now, the Civil War shipwreck sits in the way of a government agency's
$653 million plan to deepen the waterway that links the nation's fourth-busiest container
port to the Atlantic Ocean. The ship's remains are considered so historically significant that dredging the river is prohibited
within 50 feet of the wreckage.

United States Foreign Cultural Exchange Jurisdictional Immunity Clarification - USA
The Lawyers' Committee for Cultural Heritage Preservation (LCCHP) is asking the Senate to postpone voting on the United
States Foreign Cultural Exchange Jurisdictional Immunity Clarification Act until it has addressed concerns with this bill
through open hearings.
The proposed legislation will allow foreign governments to immunize themselves from U.S. lawsuits when loaning art and
antiquities to American museums. Although LCCHP supports the bill's purpose of cultural exchange, we fear that it would
leave victims of theft and looting without recourse to recover their rightful property. By allowing museums to knowingly
exhibit illicit artwork, it will also send a terrible message to the public, which undermines the longstanding U.S.
commitment to cultural heritage preservation…

À l'occasion de la remise d'un doctorat honorifique de l'Université du Québec à Montréal à Jean-Claude Marsan, ce colloque

ville peut-elle encore être plus scandinave, plus française, plus espagnole? [S']Approprier la ville invite à discuter des
instruments de la planification urbaine, des outils de la patrimonialisation et des autres moyens mis en œuvre afin de
penser comment s'aménage le vivre et le devenir-ensemble dans un milieu de vie suffisamment intégrateur et représentatif
pour susciter l'attachement et l'appropriation de ses citoyens d'aujourd’hui et de demain. Il s'agit, en d'autres mots, de
réfléchir de concert au devenir-ensemble et à l'avenir du génie du lieu.

Easter Sculpture Museum / Exit Architects - 2011 - Hellín- Albacete - Spain
In the competition winning proposal we included the completely refurbished Casa del Conde as a part of the Museum. We
even wanted to give it a main role, incorporating the former backyard facade as the background of the new main exhibition
space. The inner court of the house played also a significant role as an exhibition area which established a relationship
between the old and the new parts. The upper levels hosted an administration area and a library.

Video: London Aerial / Jason Hawkes
Aerial photographer Jason Hawkes captures London’s hazy skyline in both day and

the city. The building is designed by Renzo Piano and is slated to become the tallest in

Re Building, is instantly recognizable in nearly every frame as it is a landmark within

Planetarium, Centre for Eco Tourism, and Science and Technology Centre / JB
Ferrari & Associates- Chalet-à-Gobet - Lausanne - Switzerland
The iconic nature of the winning proposal for the Planetarium, Centre for Eco Tourism,
and Science and Technology Centre is balanced by a rational response to the brief and
the constraints of the site. By isolating the planetarium and the activities linked closely
to it the design by JB Ferrari & Associates is able to exploit the strong potential for
volumetric expression. This allows for a more subdued intervention to the historic
buildings. Seemingly evident, such a direction is not an obvious reading of the brief but
is made possible through astute reinterpretation of the district plan.

PAI (Pôle d'attraction inter-universitaire) "City and Society in the Low Countries (ca. 1200 - ca. 1850). The
"condition urbaine": between resilience and vulnerability" - Université libre de Belgique (ULB)
« City and Society in the Low Countries » is a vibrant network of senior and junior researchers devoted to the study of the
urban history of the historical Low Countries (present-day Belgium and the Netherlands), that builds on the know-how
acquired in IAP phases III, IV, V and VI. For this phase (2012-2017), the network proposes a new collaborative research
project entitled « City and Society in the Low Countries (ca. 1200-ca. 1850). The condition urbaine : between resilience
and vulnerability ». Environmental problems, issues of social identity, and of community building have claimed their place
on the world's social sciences programmes, and are therefore of great historical interest. Yet, the questions and results of
this historical research often remain isolated and, therefore, need to be reintegrated in a questionnaire that claims not only
historical but also wider social relevance. From an historical perspective, one of the most striking features of urban society
is its capacity to undergo moments of stress and extreme crisis or long-term destabilisation, but to re-emerge in the end.
This remarkable resilience of the urban phenomenon - or condition urbaine - will be the leading concept of this research
network in the following years, allowing for a critical assessment. The common goal of the different research projects
proposed by the network is to give a realistic and contingent evaluation of the opportunities, challenges, successes and
failures of urban societies…

Accessible Ribadeo / Abalo Alonso Arquitectos - 2010 - Ribadeo, Galicia (Spain)
Ribadeo is located in the north-west of Galicia, at the border with Asturias and edging the
estuary which bears its very same name. It has some nine thousand inhabitants, most of them
working at the services sector. It has a protected historical quarter, a marina and a commercial
port, which is strategically located in the Cantabrian coast.
Within the municipality of Ribadeo lies the Catedrales beach, whose surrounding area is the
second most visited place in Galicia, following Santiago de Compostela’s Cathedral. Ribadeo is a
favorite summer holiday destination not just for people from the Lugo province, but also from
people from every corner of Spain.
We could highlight then two outstanding features in the region: on the one hand, a consolidated population, a population
with a future, and growing tourism both sporadic and regular. On the other hand, a villa swinging in between two ends: on
one end, the marina and commercial port; on the other end, the historical quarter.

Indigenous Modernities - Negotiating Architecture and Urbanism
Author: Jyoti Hosagrahar
Published by Routledge, 2005
ISBN 978-0415323765
This book examines how a historic and so-called 'traditional' city quietly evolved into one that was modern
in its own terms; in form, use and meaning. Through a focused study of Delhi, the author challenges
prevalent assumptions in architecture and urbanism to identify an interpretation of modernism that goes
beyond conventional understanding.
Part one reflects on transformations and discontinuities in built form and spatial culture and questions accepted notions of
the static nature of what is normally referred to as traditional and non-Western architecture.
Part two is a critical discussion of Delhi in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, redefining modernism in a way that
separates the city's architecture and society from the objectified realm of the exotic whilst acknowledging non-Western
ideas of modernity.
In the final part the author considers 'indigenous modernities': the irregular, the uneven and the unexpected in what
uncritical observers might call a coherent 'traditional' society and built environment.

MONU Magazine New Issue: Non-Urbanism
MONU – magazine on urbanism is a unique bi-annual international forum for artists, writers and designers
that are working on topics of urban culture, development and politics.
Each issue collects essays, projects and photographs from contributors from all over the world to a given
topic. Thus MONU examines the rural as a strict counterpart to the urban as it appears to be a condition of
the past. At least, this is what Kees Christiaanse posits in an interview with us entitled “The New Rural:
Global Agriculture, Desakotas, and Freak Farms”. He points out that, today, non-urban spaces interact so
frequently and intensely with urbanity that you can no longer describe something as strictly rural.
Therefore, we can no longer separate the city from the countryside as these are not polarized entities and each other’s
enemies, but rather the result of each other.

The Historic Urban Landscape - Managing Heritage in an Urban Century
Authors: Francesco Bandarin & Ron van Oers
ISBN: 9780470655740
Publisher: John Wiley and Sons Ltd
Much of the current debate on how we should preserve our cultural heritage revolves around urban sites historic monuments in urban settings, historic districts, or complete historic towns. The growing
complexity of urban heritage conservation makes reaching a consensus on how to manage urban heritage
difficult. Additionally, the sharp increase in the world's population now living in urban areas, combined
with a lack of policies to facilitate a sustainable use of heritage assets means the pressure on historic sites is set to rise.
Unless new and innovative ways of managing these sites can be agreed on, there is a real danger that historic cities as we
know them today will not survive the first decades of the 21st century…

Culture et mondialisation: les villes, la politique culturelle et la gouvernance
Authors: Helmut K Anheier - Hertie School of Governance, Germay. University of Heidelberg & Yudhishthir
Raj Isar - The American University of Paris
Paperback ISBN: 97814462012
Hardcover ISBN: 9781446201220
Today is a new metropolitan age and for the first time ever more people live in cities than they do
anywhere else. As cities strengthen their international and cultural influence, the global world is acted out
most articulately in the world's urban hubs - through its diverse cultures, broad networks and innovative
styles of governance. Looking at the city through its internal dynamics, the book examines how governance and cultural
policy play out in a national and international framework.
Making a truly global contribution to the literature, editors Isar and Anheier bring together a truly international and highlyrespected collection of scholars. In doing so, they skilfully steer debates beyond the city as an economic powerhouse, to
cover issues that fully comprehend a city's cultural dynamics and its impact on policy including alternative economies,
creativity, migration, diversity, sustainability, education and urban planning.
Innovative in its approach and content, this book is ideal for students, scholars and researchers interested in sociology,
urban studies, cultural studies, and public policy.

Conceptualising heritage through the maritime lens: a heritage ethnography of maritime
Bermuda
By Charlotte Andrews
Published in the International Journal of Heritage Studies, in the 2012 Special Issue 'Memory in the
Maritime Museum: Objects, Narratives, Identities'
This article presents the key findings of recent maritime heritage research in Bermuda. It recounts the
essential ways contemporary Bermudians use their relationships with the sea to formulate identity and
community and thereby generate maritime heritage. The summarised single-region, grassroots-orientated,
maritime-themed heritage ethnography examines relationships with past and present maritimes; remembrance and
forgetting of ‘race’ and its legacies; beliefs in authenticity; curatorial practices of community museology; and aspirational
remedies to social crisis. Together, these five ethnographic dimensions offer a holistic and realistic picture of maritime
heritage in this mid-Atlantic community. This overview encapsulates and expands upon this ethnographic analysis of
maritime heritage and examines its contribution to heritage and museum studies.

Experts Sound Alarm Over Syrian Arab Republic Archaeological Treasures
Syria's year-long revolt has exposed to looting and destruction the country's archaeological
treasures, including the ancient city of Palmyra and the Greco-Roman ruins of Apamea,
experts warned Thursday.
Most vulnerable are strife-torn areas that have fallen outside the full control of the regime
where looters have already targeted museums, excavation sites and monuments, they said.
"In the past three to four months there has been a lot of looting," said Hiba al-Sakhel,
director of museums in Syria.

United States Foreign Cultural Exchange Jurisdictional Immunity Clarification - USA
The Lawyers' Committee for Cultural Heritage Preservation (LCCHP) is asking the Senate to postpone voting on the United
States Foreign Cultural Exchange Jurisdictional Immunity Clarification Act until it has addressed concerns with this bill
through open hearings.
The proposed legislation will allow foreign governments to immunize themselves from U.S. lawsuits when loaning art and
antiquities to American museums. Although LCCHP supports the bill's purpose of cultural exchange, we fear that it would
leave victims of theft and looting without recourse to recover their rightful property. By allowing museums to knowingly
exhibit illicit artwork, it will also send a terrible message to the public, which undermines the longstanding U.S.
commitment to cultural heritage preservation…

Un tableau de Paul Cézanne, volé en 2008, retrouvé à Belgrade
La police serbe a découvert mercredi soir à Belgrade un tableau du peintre français Paul Cézanne volé en
2008 et a arrêté trois suspects, ont rapporté jeudi les médias. Le tableau «Jeune garçon au gilet rouge»,
datant de 1888-89 et dont la valeur est estimé à plusieurs dizaines de millions d’euros, avait été volé en
2008 en Suisse dans un musée de Zurich en même temps que d’autres toiles d’Edgar Degas, Vincent
van Gogh et Claude Monet, a indiqué la chaîne B92.
L’opération d’arrestation des suspects, qui s’est déroulée à Belgrade et Cacak, ville à 140 km au sudouest de la capitale serbe, a été préparée pendant plusieurs mois avec la coopération des polices de
plusieurs pays, a-t-on indiqué. Le ministère serbe de l’Intérieur, interrogé par l’AFP, s’est borné à préciser qu’un point de
presse à ce sujet aurait lieu dans l’après- midi à Belgrade. Le télévision d’Etat serbe (RTS) a, de son côté, indiqué que des
experts suisses étaient attendus prochainement à Belgrade pour établir l’authenticité de la toile découverte.

500-year-old painting back to Jewish family - Tallahassee - Florida -USA
A 500-year-old painting auctioned by the French government during the Nazi occupation in World War
II is back in the hands of a Jewish family who proved it was sold illegally. U.S. authorities in
Tallahassee on Wednesday signed paperwork to return the 16th century Baroque painting to
representatives of the family of Federico Gentili di Giuseppe. He died in 1940 shortly before the Nazis
occupied France. The Vichy government sold the painting, but the sale has been deemed illegal. The
family plans to auction "Christ Carrying the Cross" later this year. It could fetch up to $3.5 million. U.S.
authorities seized the painting from a Florida museum in November after discovering the family had
been seeking its return. A federal judge in February ordered that the painting be returned to the family.

Website - Loot Busters
The basic premise is to try to list photos of all stolen and looted archaeological material, starting with Egyptian, Greek and
Roman. We are only listing material reported missing after 1970 by governments or their representatives, except in the
case of Nazi-related claims where we go back to 1933. Much material is already up, and more is being added. The photos
are publicly available to all on the web site, so anyone can browse, and anyone who wishes to mirror the site is welcome
to. If anyone spots stolen material, and would like our help, we are happy to do so: we do not charge, and have a good
track record negotiating returns. There is no database yet, although material is sorted by reporter, material, iconography
and so forth. One reason is that although we were offered good funding by a government and the art market, this led to
some controversies, and we decided it was better to initially go forward with a budget of $300, which covers the domain
name and web hosting costs.

Amateur sleuth helps stop National Archives and Records Administration thefts Washington D.C. (USA)
When J. David Goldin saw the recorded interview of baseball great Babe Ruth for sale on

interview of Ruth on a hunting trip, and Goldin had donated it to a government archive more

Goldin launched an amateur sleuthing effort that helped uncover a thief ripping off the country's most important repository

During the first three months of 2012, prominent occasions of special importance animated the life of Iraqis, showing very
promising signs on the shorter and longer terms.
On behalf of UNESCO, I would like to congratulate the Iraqi government and citizens for their successful organization of the

Un centre d'interprétation de l'estuaire et de la Loire à Saint-Nazaire (France)
Ce centre ouvrira courant 2015 dans l’ancienne usine élévatoire, témoin du passé historique
et industriel de la ville qui fût édifiéé au début du XXème siècle et qui a cessé son activité en
1989. Le projet dont le coût avoisinera les 10 millions d'euros est initié par la Région Pays de
la Loire, la ville de Saint-Nazaire et le Grand Port Maritime Nantes-Saint-Nazaire.
Ce centre d'interprétation et de valorisation veut devenir un véritable lieu de vie, de débats
et de rencontres autour de la thématique de l’estuaire et de la Loire. Paysages,
environnement, activité économique, vie sociale : la Loire a en effet profondément structuré
la vie quotidienne des habitants de l'estuaire et des bords de Loire.
Le projet culturel et scientifique prévoit de relier la ville-port, l’estuaire et la Loire amont, notamment le Val de Loire inscrit
au patrimoine mondial.

Patrimoine scientifique, astronomique, technologique et industriel
The iconic nature of the winning proposal for the Planetarium, Centre for Eco Tourism,
and Science and Technology Centre is balanced by a rational response to the brief and
the constraints of the site. By isolating the planetarium and the activities linked closely
to it the design by JB Ferrari & Associates is able to exploit the strong potential for
volumetric expression. This allows for a more subdued intervention to the historic
buildings. Seemingly evident, such a direction is not an obvious reading of the brief but
is made possible through astute reinterpretation of the district plan.

The Plant: An Old Chicago Factory is Converted into a No-Waste Food Factory Chicago, Illinois (USA)
The old red-brick building sporting a “BEER” sign may not look impressive, but what is going
on inside certainly is. “The Plant” is an indoor vertical farm that triples as a food-business
incubator and research/education space located inside an 87-year old meat packing factory
in the Union Stockyards of Chicago, Illinois. The project was partly funded by the Illinois
Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity with a $1.5 million grant. Browse
through the Plant Chicago’s Flickr Photostream and you can watch the space steadily
transform into an urban farm that will grow fresh produce, farm fresh fish, brew beer and produce kombucha all while
recycling the waste of the facility to make it a Net-Zero Energy System.

Archaeologists find ancient Mayan workshop for astronomers in northeastern
Guatemala
Archaeologists have found a small room in Mayan ruins where royal scribes apparently used
walls like a blackboard to keep track of astronomical records and the society's intricate
calendar some 1,200 years ago. The walls reveal the oldest known astronomical tables from
the Maya. Scientists already knew they must have been keeping such records at that time,
but until now the oldest known examples dated from about 600 years later. Astronomical
records were key to the Mayan calendar, which has gotten some attention recently because
of doomsday warnings that it predicts the end of the world this December. Experts say it makes no such prediction. The
new finding provides a bit of backup: The calculations include a time span longer than 6,000 years that could extend well
beyond 2012.

Safeguarding Nepal's Intangible Cultural Heritage: capacity building to start next week in Kathmandu - Nepal
(16-20 April 2012)
Nepal’s traditions, performing arts, festive events and the skills of its people to produce traditional crafts are as precious as
its many heritage buildings. But often, the capacity to safeguard this intangible heritage is low. UNESCO therefore initiates
on 16 April a series of workshops on the implementation of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible
Cultural Heritage, which Nepal has ratified in 2010.
The first workshop in this capacity building initiative is being organized in Kathmandu from 16 to 20 April 2012 jointly by
the Ministry of Federal Affairs, Constituent Assembly, Parliamentary Affairs and Culture and the UNESCO Office in
Kathmandu.

Afrodescendientes. El color olvidado - Grupo Córdoba Ruta del Esclavo (Argentina)
Para reconciliar la memoria con la verdad, la ONU declaró a 2011 como Año Internacional de
los Afrodescendientes, reconociéndolos como un sector de la población cuyos derechos
deben ser protegidos. Es que el racismo y la xenofobia afectan aún hoy a quienes
descienden de las víctimas del comercio de esclavos entre África, Europa y América, tráfico
que desterró violentamente a unas 20 millones de personas.
El legado de este colectivo social en la Argentina comenzó a estudiarse en 2004, cuando la
UNESCO inició el proyecto Ruta del Esclavo en el Río de la Plata, identificando sitios ligados
al esclavismo con el fin de crear itinerarios conmemorativos y revalorizar la cultura generada por la presencia de
afrodescendientes.

19hs. in La Huerta de Saavedra - Espacio CUCOCO. Plaza Oeste 3556 – Federal Capital. Buenos Aires,
Argentina.
Presentation of the documentary “Y TU – EL ARROYO”. The documentary was made with the Mbya
Guaraní “Y TU” community of the Dpt. of Caazapá, Paraguay. The Mbya Guaranís are suffering from
territorial aggression for the imposition of the soy crop. The deforestation of the forests in which they have lived since
ancient times impacts directly their traditional habitat, and therefore their culture. In spite of this, the Mbya Guaranís
continue to preserve their culture and their cosmovision, which include ecological practices and a human sense of life.

recover the tangible places that treasure the memory of hundreds of enslaved Blacks who worked and built
the memory in the territory.

EVOLUTION RECENTE DES OCEANS TROPICAUX: LE RÔLE DE L'INFLUENCE HUMAINE
Par Lola Corre Au sein du système complexe que constitue le climat, l'océan joue un rôle primordial. D'une part, il
enregistre et intègre les effets du changement climatique; d'autre part, les échelles de temps de ses variations naturelles,
et notamment son inertie thermique environ mille fois supérieure à celle de l'atmosphère, en font un acteur important
susceptible de moduler les effets futurs du changement climatique. Cette thèse se propose de mettre en évidence des
signatures du changement climatique d'origine anthropique dans l'océan. Pour cela, nous étudions les évolutions observées
de la température océanique de sub-surface et de la salinité océanique de surface, au cours des trente à cinquante
dernières années. Des méthodes statistiques de détection de la réponse au forçage anthropique sont utilisées pour
déterminer si une influence humaine peut être détectée dans les changements récents observés.

Job Offers - International chair in Evolutionary Marine Ecology - LabexMer.
University of Brest (France) Deadline for applications: 31 May 2012
LabexMER is enthusiastically inviting applications for an international chair in
Evolutionary Marine Ecology. This chair aims to promote research on both the
evolutionary influences on ecological processes and on the ecological influences on
evolutionary processes, using both theoretical and experimental approaches.
The applicants should have an international recognition and a significant publication
record in ecology, especially in functional ecology. One of the potential pathways to
tackle these questions could rely on experimental approaches where evolutionary processes on short time scales
(phenotypic plasticity, changes in life history traits) influence ecological processes. The development of theoretical models
will represent one of the expected outcomes of this chair.
The chair is set up for a duration of three years. It is awarded with a grant of 200,000 €/year. These funds include the
salary of the successful candidate. Part of this funding may also be used for equipment purpose, operating costs and costs
related to personnel hired on a fix-termed contract basis, that cannot exceed the duration of the project.

Une forêt jeune chargée d'histoire - Verdun (France)
La forêt domaniale de Verdun a été créée au lendemain de la Première Guerre mondiale
sur l’ancien champ de bataille. Elle englobe pour l’essentiel d’anciennes terres agricoles
dévastées et déclarées impropres à l'agriculture par les autorités, mais aussi des zones
autrefois boisées.
Située à proximité de Verdun, ce haut lieu de mémoire de presque 10.000 ha, accueille
chaque année de nombreux visiteurs. Profondément marquée par la Grande Guerre,
dont elle porte encore les séquelles, la forêt a évolué au fil des ans et des interventions
forestières. Elle abrite aujourd'hui des espèces animales et végétales protégées. Elle est gérée par l’Office national des
forêts.

The National Museum of Civil War Medicine is trying to determine if a preserved
human forearm is a relic of the Civil War Battle of Antietam - Frederick - MarylandUSA
Long after the guns fell silent at Antietam, the earth yielded up gruesome reminders of the
bloodiest day of the American Civil War: bodies, bones, buttons and entire severed limbs —
one of which is now the focus of intense study at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.
A Sharpsburg-area farmer is said to have found the human forearm while plowing a field two
weeks after the 1862 battle.

Site web - The Civil War in Art: Teaching & Learning through Chicago Collections. Chicago,
Illinois (USA)
"The Civil War in Art: Teaching and Learning through Chicago Collections" is intended to help teachers and
students learn about the Civil War—its causes and effects—and connect to the issues, events, and people
of the era through works of art.
The website was initiated, funded, and developed by the Chicago-based Terra Foundation for American Art
in acknowledgement of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War (1861–1865). From 2010 to 2012,
the Terra Foundation collaborated with six Chicago cultural organizations on the project. Each partner
contributed images from its collection along with written descriptions, questions for discussion, and additional reading
sources. Content specialists from DePaul University curated the selection of objects and wrote the Exhibit texts and
selected object descriptions. Terra Foundation staff contributed to the writing and editing of the Exhibit texts, object
descriptions, and other content in collaboration with the partners and content specialists.

Des Armes et des Hommes. L'archerie à la transition fin du Néolithique/Age du Bronze en Europe occidentale Université Toulouse Le Mirail. Toulouse II (France)
Part importante de l'armement préhistorique pour les périodes récentes (quantitativement et qualitativement), l'archerie
représente un objet d'étude riche en développements problématiques. A l'aube de l'introduction progressive de la
métallurgie dans les usages techniques, il est intéressant de saisir le ou les processus de transferts mis en œuvre.
Transition chronologique (Néolithique/Age du bronze), transition matérielle (types de pièces produites et types de
matériaux employés) et transition comportementale sont ainsi envisagées pour parvenir à préciser le statut de cet
armement dans les sociétés concernées. En nous basant sur la caractérisation de la panoplie de l'archer, sur l'identification
des contextes de fabrication, sur la reconnaissance des champs fonctionnels (utilisations et usagers) et sur l'analyse archéobalistique des vestiges de traumatismes par flèches dans le cadre de violences interhumaines, il en résulte un ensemble
exhaustif qui renouvelle sensiblement la perception de cet armement dans le temps et dans les usages.

La représentation des bateaux en europe entre le VIIIè et le XIIIè siècle.
Par Barbara Auger L'étude de la représentation des bateaux en Europe du Nord-Ouest ne se limite pas à la seule question
iconographique et pose pour l'objectif la compréhension de l'humain dans son acte représentatif. Aussi la problématique
s'intéresse-t-elle à la modalité perceptive et sa mise en culture. Comprendre la représentation des bateaux durant le Moyen
Age nord-européen s'attache ainsi à définir la verbalisation de l'objet technologique qu'est le navire, les modes de
productions visuelles et les schémas mentaux qui lestent chacune des images tant mentales que visuelles d'un sens
culturel. Il s'agit de donner une définition anthropologique de l'image du bateau restituée à son contexte de développement
et d'ainsi rétablir l'intentionnalité créatrice de chacun des auteurs. Image d'un processus créatif en cours, le bateau
mythologique pose donc les questions d'un comportement humain fondamental, aussi est-il important de baser cette
analyse sur un questionnement épistémologique. Il s'agit de véritablement d'appréhender le mouvement créatif humain.
Cette thèse est un bateau.

Cutty Sark / Grimshaw - London - United Kingdom
Cutty Sark epitomises the great age of sail; she is the last surviving tea clipper. Herre
markable story is tangible evidence of the centuries long importance of sea-trade to this
country and to the growth of London as theworld’s pre-eminent port and trading centre. Built
as a tea clipper, where speed to market was critical, it is the combination of sail and hull
form which gave Cutty Sarkher edge. The hull shape is defined by the revolutionary 19th
century composite iron and timber ship building technique.
A comprehensive programme of conservation began on Cutty •
Sark in 2004, which saw the biggest overhaul of the Grade I listed landmark for 50 years with the ship’s reopening planned
to take place in 2009. The project was brought to a dramatic halt when a fire in 2007 swept through the wooden structure,
causing extensive damage to the centre of the ship. The disaster caught the public’s interest and initiated a major fund
raising campaign, enabling the project not only to be resumed at the end of 2009 but to an enhanced design brief…

disappeared from North Carolina's Roanoke Island in the late 16th century. Experts from the First Colony Foundation and
the British Museum in London discussed their findings Thursday at a scholarly meeting on the campus of the University of

White in the 1580s and owned by the British Museum since 1866.

Examining the memorialscape of occupation and liberation: a case study from the British
Channel Islands
By Dr Gillian Carra
Volume 18, Issue 2, 2012
Special Issue:
This paper introduces the concept of the ‘memorialscape’ as a tool for studying the inter-relationship of
memorials within a single rural or urban environment or landscape. Using a case study of the British
Channel Islands, where the number of memorials relating to the German occupation of 1940–1945 has
increased greatly since 1985 (the 40th anniversary of liberation), I examine the active role these memorials have played in
changing the occupation narrative of the islands. This paper will also explore the importance of memorial marginality and
centrality; memorial inter-visibility; the difference between the memorialscape of the capital towns of Guernsey and Jersey
and the groups they commemorate; and the narrative that the resulting memorialscape produces.

Cultural Heritage and Prisoners of War: Creativity Behind Barbed Wire
Book edited by Gilly Carr and Harold Mytum
ISBN: 978-0-415-52215-1
Published: March 2012
Following on from a successful conference at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research in 2010,
this book focuses on the numerous examples of creativity produced by POWs and civilian internees during
their captivity, including: paintings, cartoons, craftwork, needlework, acting, musical compositions,
magazine and newspaper articles, wood carving, and recycled Red Cross tins turned into plates, mugs and
makeshift stoves, all which have previously received little attention. The authors of this volume show the wide potential of
such items to inform us about the daily life and struggle for survival behind barbed wire. Previously dismissed as items
which could only serve to illustrate POW memoirs and diaries, this book argues for a central role of all items of creativity in
helping us to understand the true experience of life in captivity. The international authors draw upon a rich seam of
material from their own case studies of POW and civilian internment camps across the world, to offer a range of
interpretations of this diverse and extraordinary material.

Conceptualising heritage through the maritime lens: a heritage ethnography of maritime
Bermuda
By Charlotte Andrews
Published in the International Journal of Heritage Studies, in the 2012 Special Issue 'Memory in the
Maritime Museum: Objects, Narratives, Identities'
This article presents the key findings of recent maritime heritage research in Bermuda. It recounts the
essential ways contemporary Bermudians use their relationships with the sea to formulate identity and
community and thereby generate maritime heritage. The summarised single-region, grassroots-orientated,
maritime-themed heritage ethnography examines relationships with past and present maritimes; remembrance and
forgetting of ‘race’ and its legacies; beliefs in authenticity; curatorial practices of community museology; and aspirational
remedies to social crisis. Together, these five ethnographic dimensions offer a holistic and realistic picture of maritime
heritage in this mid-Atlantic community. This overview encapsulates and expands upon this ethnographic analysis of
maritime heritage and examines its contribution to heritage and museum studies.

MUSEVI / TEN Arquitectos - 2011 - Villahermosa - Tabasco- Mexico
A new elevated museum complete with an outdoor amphitheater at its base. MUSEVI is
phase one of a three-phased Master Plan for Paseo Tabasco. By physically connecting two
otherwise insulated lakes, Vaso Cencalli and Lagoon of Illusions, MUSEVI proposes a new
form of exhibition and public space that encourages connectivity and social gathering.
Likewise, the accompanying amphitheater has become a new focal point for Tomas Garrido
Park. And with parts of the building protruding into and over the landscape, the museum, at
the same time, encourages an intimate and reflective contemplation of the surrounding
nature, if not acting as an unequivocal celebration thereof.

The Neutra Embassy Building in Karachi, Pakistan: A Petition to Save Modernism Karachi - Pakistan
Richard Neutra‘s Embassy Building in Karachi, Pakistan is a relic of the Cold War – an effort by
the United States to express its authority and wealth in other countries. The building is in the
modernist style, designed in 1959, by an architect whose work is still admired today. Until
2011, the Embassy was occupied by the U.S. General Consulate and was a symbol of
modernity in Karachi. The Neutra Institute for Survival through Design has begun a petition to
help save this building from demolition. It proclaims that this modernist icon is “the only

"Lost" Le Corbusier Building Sparks Preservation Movement in Iraq - Baghdad (Iraq)
In Upstate New York, residents are clamoring to raze down their Government Center, Paul
Rudolph’s classic 1970 example of brutalist design. Ostensibly, this is due to flood-damage. But it
can’t hurt that, as one resident was quoted in The New York Times as saying, it’s “a big ugly
building.”
In Minnesota, city officials would rather tear down M. Paul Fiedberg’s Peavey Plaza, a “Modernist
gem” completed in ’73, than spend the time, money, and effort to revitalize it.
In Baghdad, on the other hand, a gymnasium completed in 1982, suffering the signs of decades
of violence, poverty, and ill-executed renovation, has sparked a small preservation movement, reawakening a country to its
neglected cultural heritage.
The architect behind this Iraqi endeavor? None other than Le Corbusier himself.

In 2009, Syracuse University’s Special Collection Research Center recieved a National Endowment for the Humanities grant
with which it began creating the Marcel Breuer Digital Archive. The digital archive, available online, is a collaborative effort
headed by the library and includes institutions such as the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin, the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau, the
Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich, Harvard University, the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian
Institution, the University of East Anglia, and the Vitra Design Museum. It is in the first phase, which includes Breuer work

Satellite observes rapid ice shelf disintegration in Antarctic
As ESA’s Envisat satellite marks ten years in orbit, it continues to observe the rapid retreat of one of
Antarctica’s ice shelves due to climate warming.
One of the satellite’s first observations following its launch on 1 March 2002 was of break-up of a main
section of the Larsen B ice shelf in Antarctica – when 3200 sq km of ice disintegrated within a few days due
to mechanical instabilities of the ice masses triggered by climate warming.
Now, with ten years of observations using its Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR), Envisat has
mapped an additional loss in Larsen B’s area of 1790 sq km over the past decade.

Subduction dynamics and the origin of Andean orogeny and the Bolivian orocline
The building of the Andes results from the subduction of the oceanic Nazca plate underneath the South American continent.
However, how and why the Andes and their curvature, the Bolivian orocline, formed in the Cenozoic era (65.5 million years
(Myr) ago to present), despite subduction continuing since the Mesozoic era (251.0–65.5 Myr ago), is still unknown. Threedimensional numerical subduction models demonstrate that variations in slab thickness, arising from the Nazca plate’s age
at the trench, produce a cordilleran morphology consistent with that observed…

glaciers and their contribution to regional hydrology and global sea-level rise suffer from a severe lack of observations1.
The globally averaged mass balance of glaciers and ice caps is negative. An anomalous gain of mass has been suggested
for the Karakoram glaciers, but was not confirmed by recent estimates of mass balance. Furthermore, numerous glacier
surges in the region that lead to changes in glacier length and velocity complicate the interpretation of the available
observations. Here, we calculate the regional mass balance of glaciers in the central Karakoram between 1999 and 2008,
based on the difference between two digital elevation models. We find a highly heterogeneous spatial pattern of changes in

glacier elevation, which shows that ice thinning and ablation at high rates can occur on debris-covered glacier tongues. The
regional mass balance is just positive at +0.11±0.22 m yr−1 water equivalent and in agreement with the observed
reduction of river runoff that originates in this area. Our measurements confirm an anomalous mass balance in the
Karakoram region and indicate that the contribution of Karakoram glaciers to sea-level rise was −0.01 mm yr−1 for the
period from 1999 to 2008, 0.05 mm yr−1 lower than suggested before.

Recent Plant Diversity Changes on Europe’s Mountain Summits
In mountainous regions, climate warming is expected to shift species’ ranges to higher altitudes. Evidence for such shifts is
still mostly from revisitations of historical sites. We present recent (2001 to 2008) changes in vascular plant species
richness observed in a standardized monitoring network across Europe’s major mountain ranges. Species have moved
upslope on average. However, these shifts had opposite effects on the summit floras’ species richness in boreal-temperate
mountain regions (+3.9 species on average) and Mediterranean mountain regions (–1.4 species), probably because recent
climatic trends have decreased the availability of water in the European south. Because Mediterranean mountains are
particularly rich in endemic species, a continuation of these trends might shrink the European mountain flora, despite an
average increase in summit species richness across the region.

US museums rebuild but fears of relapse linger - Directors' optimism tempered by
sluggish economy and slow recovery of investments (USA)
Leading US museums are finally in recovery mode and their directors are much more
optimistic about the financial outlook than a year ago, but few are feeling bullish.
Endowments may have increased but they have not regained their peak of 2007. Of the ten
richest museums we surveyed, seven were within sight of their previous levels, but the
wealthiest, the Getty Trust, is only a third of the way to the $1.8bn it lost during the
downturn (see table, p10). The road to financial health will be long for all but a fortunate
few, and many fear that the economic recovery may prove short-lived. Nevertheless, many directors describe themselves
as “cautiously optimistic”.

Mucha's "Slav Epic" moved to Prague without approval - Conservationists and art
historians warn temporary venue could damage the paintings - Veletrzni Palac,
Prague (Czech Republic)
The remaining 15 canvases of the Czech artist Alphonse Mucha’s “Slav Epic” cycle have been
removed without approval from the Moravian town of Moravsky Krumlov and taken to Prague,
according to the Alphonse Mucha Foundation. The canvases will be reunited with the five other
parts and the entire series of 20 canvases is due to go on show at Prague’s Veletrzni Palac
(Trade Fair Palace). But leading conservationists and art historians say this venue could cause
severe damage to the paintings, which Mucha considered his masterpiece. “It’s a very serious mistake,” says Petr Kuthan,
the head of restoration at the Czech National Gallery in Prague.
The foundation wants the monumental work, which depicts the history of the Slavic people, to be housed in Prague’s main
train station. “We have issued a formal letter of intent, signed by us, the Czech railways and the Italian developer
overhauling the station,” says John Mucha, the artist’s grandson and the president of the foundation.

Un tableau de Paul Cézanne, volé en 2008, retrouvé à Belgrade
La police serbe a découvert mercredi soir à Belgrade un tableau du peintre français Paul Cézanne volé en
2008 et a arrêté trois suspects, ont rapporté jeudi les médias. Le tableau «Jeune garçon au gilet rouge»,
datant de 1888-89 et dont la valeur est estimé à plusieurs dizaines de millions d’euros, avait été volé en
2008 en Suisse dans un musée de Zurich en même temps que d’autres toiles d’Edgar Degas, Vincent
van Gogh et Claude Monet, a indiqué la chaîne B92.
L’opération d’arrestation des suspects, qui s’est déroulée à Belgrade et Cacak, ville à 140 km au sudouest de la capitale serbe, a été préparée pendant plusieurs mois avec la coopération des polices de
plusieurs pays, a-t-on indiqué. Le ministère serbe de l’Intérieur, interrogé par l’AFP, s’est borné à préciser qu’un point de
presse à ce sujet aurait lieu dans l’après- midi à Belgrade. Le télévision d’Etat serbe (RTS) a, de son côté, indiqué que des
experts suisses étaient attendus prochainement à Belgrade pour établir l’authenticité de la toile découverte.

MUSEVI / TEN Arquitectos - 2011 - Villahermosa - Tabasco- Mexico
A new elevated museum complete with an outdoor amphitheater at its base. MUSEVI is
phase one of a three-phased Master Plan for Paseo Tabasco. By physically connecting two
otherwise insulated lakes, Vaso Cencalli and Lagoon of Illusions, MUSEVI proposes a new
form of exhibition and public space that encourages connectivity and social gathering.
Likewise, the accompanying amphitheater has become a new focal point for Tomas Garrido
Park. And with parts of the building protruding into and over the landscape, the museum, at
the same time, encourages an intimate and reflective contemplation of the surrounding
nature, if not acting as an unequivocal celebration thereof.

Sarajevo museums under siege - Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina’s major cultural institutions, including the National Gallery and the
National Museum, which are both in the capital Sarajevo, are in danger of closing indefinitely
due to a lack of funding and government support. Staff, many of whom have been not been
paid for months, have responded by organising events and exhibitions to bring attention to
the crisis. The situation stems from the country’s dysfunctional administrative system and
the lack of a national cultural ministry.

Two Chinese artifacts that were stolen from Durham University's Oriental Museum
have been recovered by the police
Detectives investigating the theft of priceless Chinese artefacts from a museum in Durham
have seized two cars suspected of being used by the burglars.
On the night of Thursday, April 5 intruders smashed a hole in the wall of the Malcolm
MacDonald gallery at the Oriental Museum in Elvet Hill, Durham.
They made off with a solid jade bowl dating from 1769 and a Dehua porcelain figurine, both
from the Qing Dynasty and together valued at over £2m.
Last Friday night, April 13 they were recovered from a field in the Brandon area, a few miles to the south-west of Durham
city.
Both items were examined by an expert from the museum on Monday afternoon who confirmed they were in excellent
condition, with no apparent damage resulting from their removal from the museum.

I gioielli nascosti di famiglia (Italy)
Che il nostro patrimonio storico, artistico ed archeologico sia ancora in buona parte poco
conosciuto e fruito non è opinione diffusa, ma dato di fatto: pensando ai soli siti culturali
statali, nel 2010, più della metà dei visitatori si è concentrata in soli 30 dei 424 luoghi
della cultura visitabili. Che l’ampiezza e la diffusione sul territorio di questo enorme
patrimonio rendano la sua gestione complicata è affermazione facilmente comprensibile.
Che oltre a quello che abbiamo davanti ai nostri occhi (contenitori – musei, palazzi storici,
aree archeologiche – e contenuti – tele, sculture, tavole, reperti, etc) ci sia un altro tesoro
“sommerso” e non ben definito può apparire un’asserzione bizzarra. E invece così è, e questo patrimonio oltre ad essere di
valore incommensurabile è effettivamente “incommensurato”: non sappiamo effettivamente quanto e quale sia.

Culture can save the economy
One of Italy's top culture officials has pushed private investment in the country's museums and galleries and the seemingly
insatiable Chinese and Indian appetites for art and archaeology as the way to pull the country out of its recession. Mario
Resca, a former CEO of McDonald's Italian operations who was appointed in 2008 by the government of Silvio Berlusconi to
be director-general of the Culture Ministry, said that an increase in ticket sales to Italian museums has not been matched
by an increase in state finding.

Long after the guns fell silent at Antietam, the earth yielded up gruesome reminders of the

Divinely beautiful Greek charioteer comes to London - The British Museum. London (United
Kingdom)
He is called the charioteer and although damaged, with his turning, athletic body and robe so fine and
clinging that every muscle is revealed, he is one of the most exquisite surviving Greek sculptures. And the
British Museum has managed to borrow him for the duration of the Olympic Games.
From 1 May, the fifth-century BC Auriga (charioteer) of Mozia (where he was found) will be on display in
the Duveen Gallery surrounded by the Parthenon Marbles, which are slightly younger by about 30 years.
Normally, to see the charioteer you have to make a lengthy pilgrimage to a remote island off the west
coast of Sicily, to the little museum set up in memory of the English marsala importer Giuseppe Whitaker, who personally
funded decades of excavations there.

30th March 2012 to hear about new insights into the techniques and practices behind some of
the greatest art works produced in Britain between the 16th to 19th centuries. The conference
was supported by the Clothworkers’ Foundation, and took place in the Clore Building of the Tate
Britain gallery.
Results included those of the National Portrait Gallery's 5-year project “Making Art in Tudor
Britain”.
This 5-year project that aims to examine over 120 paintings from the 16th and early 17th century using techniques such as
X-radiography (X-ray), infrared reflectography (IRR), dendrochronology, microscopy and paint sampling.

Call to close every other museum raises storm in Germany - Artists respond
that the call to close every other museum would "destroy the base of the
public funding of culture"
A call by a group of academics and cultural commentators to close every second statesubsidised cultural institution—in particular art museums and theatres—in response to
the economic downturn has provoked a robust response from German artists,
filmmakers and writers. The proposal, by the consultant and director of the Centre for
Cultural Research think tank in Berlin, Dieter Haselbach, the director of the statefunded Swiss arts council, Pro Helvetia, Pius Knüsel, and academics Armin Klein, and Stephan Opitz (also an official at the
ministry of culture in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein), was set out in the recent book Der Kulturinfarkt (Cultural
Heart Attack) as well as in an article in the German magazine Der Spiegel. In an open letter under the banner of “Akademie
der Künste” (Academy of Arts), artists including Rosemarie Trockel, Klaus Staeck and Harun Farocki, along with the
filmmaker Wim Wenders and the author Günter Grass wrote: “[We] protest against this… infringement of a taboo, which
destroys the base of the public funding of culture. [It is] an unequalled attempt to discredit the publicly funded support of
culture.” The letter also referred to “a late exhalation of neo-liberal thinking”.

En Allemagne, les auteurs d'un livre polémique suggèrent la fermeture de la moitié
des musées du pays
Dans un ouvrage provocateur paru fin mars, quatre acteurs du monde culturel dressent un bilan
très sombre du modèle culturel allemand. En réaction à une politique jugée élitiste et figée, ils
avancent des propositions pour le moins brutales et controversées.
A défaut d’apocalypse, la suggestion entraîne en tout cas une jolie polémique outre-Rhin. Et
pour cause, les auteurs de cette provocation sont des acteurs reconnus du monde de l’art : deux
professeurs d’universités, un membre de l’administration culturelle et le directeur d’une
fondation suisse. Dans un livre intitulé « Der Kulturinfarkt » (« L’infarctus culturel »), les quatre hommes exposent leur

New ‘gold’ clad extensions hint at treasures inside Maidstone Museum &Bentlif Art Gallery has reopened following an extensive £3 million refurbishment and the addition of a new east wing by
Hugh Broughton Architects. Clad with ‘gold’ shingles which hint at the museum’s collection of
‘treasures’ on display inside, the new East Wing provides the museum with a reinvigorated look
making it the cultural focus for the town centre. Housing a collection of over 600,000 artifacts
and specimens that are outstanding in their diversity and quality, Maidstone Museum forms the
largest mixed collection in Kent and one of the largest in the South-East of England…

Zaha Hadid’s Maxxi Museum faces Closure two years after its Opening - Rome
(Italy)
Just two years after its opening, the Maxxi Museum in Rome is threatened with closure. The
country’s current economic crisis has resulted in major cuts in cultural funding, causing a
great deal of stress on the arts. As BD reports, earlier this month the museum was told that
the government’s contribution to its €11 million budget would fall to less than €2 million for
2012. Now, as the museum officials failed to set a budget for 2013, the government has
reportedly begun proceedings to put the high-profile museum under special administration.
Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the 2010 Stirling Prize winning national art and architecture museum has attracted
more than 450,000 visitors per year. Hadid has described the museum’s success as “remarkable”, as it quickly built a
prestigious, international reputation within the world of contemporary art.
As reported by the Guardian, problems arose once the Italian government uncovered a €800,000 hole in Maxxi’s 2011
accounts. Although the museum stated that this amount was offset by 2010 profits, the Italian government is considering

Datong Art Museum design revealed by Foster + Partners - Datong
(China)
Construction is underway for the new Datong Art Museum in China, designed
by Foster + Partners. Referred to as China’s ‘Museum of the 21st Century’,
the 32,000-square-meter venue will be one of four major new buildings
within Datong New City’s cultural plaza. The museum will open in 2013 and
represent China in the ‘Beyond the Building’ Basel Art international tour.
Clad in earth-toned Corten steel, the roof is comprised of four interconnected
pyramids that spawn an exterior form that is conceived as an erupted landscape. Each pyramid increases in height and fan
outwards to the four corners of the cultural plaza, creating a scale that relates to the other three cultural buildings in the
plaza, while balancing the overall composition of the master plan and maximizing the internal volume of the Grand Gallery
– the heroically scaled, top-lit exhibition space that is the centerpiece of the building…

Norway's one and only painted stone Madonna from the Middle Ages
Mould has been eating away at this sculpture for centuries and loosening and fading the paint.
The curators have just a few months to save the remains, because the sculpture is going back to Holdhus
Church in western Norway.
Mille Stein, a painting restorer and researcher, says that the paint is from the Middle Ages.
Although the paint has lost its original hue and the gold no longer shines like new, they would rather
conserve the sculpture as it is rather than restore it to its original look.
The sculpture, which dates back to the 1450s, glowed of gold, blue, deep green and red when it was new.

500-year-old painting back to Jewish family - Tallahassee - Florida -USA
A 500-year-old painting auctioned by the French government during the Nazi occupation in World War
II is back in the hands of a Jewish family who proved it was sold illegally. U.S. authorities in
Tallahassee on Wednesday signed paperwork to return the 16th century Baroque painting to
representatives of the family of Federico Gentili di Giuseppe. He died in 1940 shortly before the Nazis
occupied France. The Vichy government sold the painting, but the sale has been deemed illegal. The
family plans to auction "Christ Carrying the Cross" later this year. It could fetch up to $3.5 million. U.S.
authorities seized the painting from a Florida museum in November after discovering the family had
been seeking its return. A federal judge in February ordered that the painting be returned to the family.

395 nouveaux musées en Chine en 2011
Le New York Times fait le point sur la très expansionniste politique culturelle. Pas moins de
395 musées ont été construits en 2011 tandis que les artistes contemporains sont

Après l'industrie, la Chine investit massivement dans l’art. L'ouverture de nombreux musées
s'accompagne d'un lobbying actif tentant de faire exposer des artistes chinois à l'étranger.
Deux modalités d'action qui visent à la fois à flatter la conscience nationale et à permettre au
niveau internationale, une réévaluation de l'héritage artistique chinois. « Du point de vue
occidental, la modernité artistique du 20ème siècle est typiquement occidentale » a déclaré au New York Times, Fan Di'an,

La représentation des bateaux en europe entre le VIIIè et le XIIIè siècle.
Par Barbara Auger L'étude de la représentation des bateaux en Europe du Nord-Ouest ne se limite pas à la seule question
iconographique et pose pour l'objectif la compréhension de l'humain dans son acte représentatif. Aussi la problématique
s'intéresse-t-elle à la modalité perceptive et sa mise en culture. Comprendre la représentation des bateaux durant le Moyen
Age nord-européen s'attache ainsi à définir la verbalisation de l'objet technologique qu'est le navire, les modes de
productions visuelles et les schémas mentaux qui lestent chacune des images tant mentales que visuelles d'un sens
culturel. Il s'agit de donner une définition anthropologique de l'image du bateau restituée à son contexte de développement
et d'ainsi rétablir l'intentionnalité créatrice de chacun des auteurs. Image d'un processus créatif en cours, le bateau
mythologique pose donc les questions d'un comportement humain fondamental, aussi est-il important de baser cette
analyse sur un questionnement épistémologique. Il s'agit de véritablement d'appréhender le mouvement créatif humain.
Cette thèse est un bateau.

Brandywine River Museum to offer tours of Andrew Wyeth's Studio - Chadds Ford,
Pennsylvania (USA)
In 1911, with the proceeds from his illustrations for Treasure Island, the artist N.C. Wyeth
purchased 18 acres of land on Rocky Hill in the village of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
Possessed of "the most glorious sight in the township," Wyeth built his home and studio
overlooking the valley. Here he set down roots which have nourished a family of extraordinary
creativity for more than a century.
N.C. Wyeth died in 1945, and Mrs. Wyeth lived in the house until 1973. Their daughter,
Carolyn Wyeth, lived in the house and painted in the studio until her death in 1994. In 1997, the National Park Service
granted the property National Historic Landmark status. The Brandywine River Museum owns and maintains the land and
buildings which retain much of their original character.

Planetarium, Centre for Eco Tourism, and Science and Technology Centre / JB
Ferrari & Associates- Chalet-à-Gobet - Lausanne - Switzerland
The iconic nature of the winning proposal for the Planetarium, Centre for Eco Tourism,
and Science and Technology Centre is balanced by a rational response to the brief and
the constraints of the site. By isolating the planetarium and the activities linked closely
to it the design by JB Ferrari & Associates is able to exploit the strong potential for
volumetric expression. This allows for a more subdued intervention to the historic
buildings. Seemingly evident, such a direction is not an obvious reading of the brief but
is made possible through astute reinterpretation of the district plan.

The Museum of Jesuit Mission of Alta Gracia and House of the Viceroy Liniers presents the exhibition
“PLACES OF MEMORY IN CÓRDOBA” Enslaved Blacks: Absence and Presence from 9 February 2012.
The objective of the exhibition is to show how the process of slavery in America has made invisible in
society these ethnic groups, their descendants and their cultural legacy. The places of memory exhibited
were identified by the Slave Route Group of Córdova. Since its confirmation in 2010, the Group began to
recover the tangible places that treasure the memory of hundreds of enslaved Blacks who worked and built
the memory in the territory.
Sponsored by CONAPLU and the UNESCO Mercosur Cluster, the exhibition will remain open until April 8, 2012. Admission is

Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects to Design Hood Museum's Expansion and Renovation Hanover. Pennsylvania (USA)
Dartmouth today announced that it has selected Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects to design a major
expansion and renovation of its Hood Museum of Art. Since the museum opened in 1985, its collection and
programming have grown exponentially, and it has become a vital educational resource for Dartmouth
students and faculty across a range of disciplines, and for visitors from around the world. The goal of the
project, which encompasses the renovation of the adjacent Wilson Hall and an addition to the 1985 Hood
Museum of Art building, is to significantly increase the museum’s gallery space and classrooms, and feature
new entrance facilities and amenities. The Hood’s expansion and renovation is an integral component of the creation of
Dartmouth’s new Arts District, encompassing the neighboring Hopkins Center for the Arts and the new Black Family Visual
Arts Center, designed by Machado and Silvetti and opening in September 2012. Dartmouth has also initiated a renovation
and expansion project for the Hopkins Center and will be selecting an architect in the coming year.

The solution: a private art museum that Wang hopes will impart some class to China's flashy

The Heritage Lottery Fund gives lead support to save Manet's Portrait of Mademoiselle Claus
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has announced its lead support of the Ashmolean Museum’s campaign to
save Edouard Manet’s Portrait of Mademoiselle Claus, 1868, for the public with a major grant of £5.9 million.
Since launching the campaign in February, the Ashmolean has also been awarded a significant grant from
The Art Fund of £750,000, along with £200,000 of gifts from individuals and The Friends of the Ashmolean.
The painting has been sold to a foreign buyer for £28.35 million but, under a private treaty sale, with tax
remission it can be purchased by an approved UK public collection at the greatly reduced price of £7.83
million. The Ashmolean has until 7 August 2012, before the export bar ends, to raise the remaining
£908,000 to acquire the painting. The portrait is a preparatory study for Le Balcon (1868–9) now in the Musée d’Orsay one of the key images of the Impressionist movement. Having previously been exhibited only once since it was painted, it
is currently on display in the Museum’s Impressionist Gallery…

$1,000,000 matching grant to endow its Coordinator of College Programs position and
thereby ensure the continuation of the museum’s successful initiatives to integrate the

overseen by the Coordinator, that engage 90 percent of Amherst’s student body each year. The matching grant follows a
previous grant of $500,000 that the Foundation awarded to the Mead in December 2008 to create a position for a
Coordinator of College Programs, a museum-based scholar charged with spurring and facilitating curricular engagement
with the collection. The 2008 grant also launched an ongoing series of semiannual faculty seminars in which visiting experts

MCA Director Elizabeth Ann Macgregor says: “These figures are a true testament to the success of the redevelopment. The
Galleries and National Centre for Creative Learning are bustling with people, the MCA Cafe and Store are thriving and I am
delighted to say that everywhere I turn, I see crowds interacting with art. The enthusiastic response to the redevelopment
is evident everywhere. Sam Marshall’s response to the need for a more open and accessible MCA has clearly struck a
chord.”
The redevelopment stemmed from the Museum’s exponential audience growth, that itself bore witness to the increased
interest in contemporary art. Upon completion of the $53 million transformation, the MCA’s vision to facilitate access for
everyone from school groups to people with disabilities turned into a reality and, says Elizabeth Ann Macgregor, “one that I
am extremely proud of. The MCA is back and it is positively brimming with energy.”

Palais de Tokyo reopened as the largest contemporary art centre in Europe - Paris France
Today Palais de Tokyo will reopen in Paris revealing a fully extended building and exciting
new programme, marking its 10 year anniversary since opening in 2002.
Following ten months of extensive renovation work by architects Anne Lacaton and JeanPhilippe Vassal (responsible for the design of the building’s first restoration in the late 1990s)
Palais de Tokyo has taken over the entire building and now occupies 22,000m2 (approx.
236,000 square feet), making it the largest contemporary art centre in Europe. Visitors will
have access to four floors of vast and extremely diverse exhibition galleries. The architects have deliberately preserved the
diversity of the rooms in order to allow artists to work within a number of complex spaces: light-flooded upper galleries to
the darker, more intimate spaces of the lower gallery, the four cinemas, and the broad open spaces of the curved platform
on the lower concourse. The light and airy building stretches the length of museum hill, from the Avenue du Président
Wilson to the Seine river below. Lacaton and Vassal have conceived the building as a landscape, restoring the existing light
distribution and devising new ways of handling vertical circulation to create as flexible a layout as possible.
On 12 and 13 April 2012, the Palais de Tokyo will present 28 hours of non-stop performances, concerts and installations
followed by the launch of the Triennale on 20th April, a contemporary art exhibition entitled “Intense Proximity” curated by

Crocker Art Museum receives long-term loan and future gift of paintings by
California's premier Impressionist - Sacramento, California (USA)
The Crocker Art Museum, which houses one of the country’s largest collections of Californian
art, is pleased to announce it will be the recipient of a comprehensive collection by the
Golden State’s foremost Impressionist painter, Guy Rose. “Guy Rose was as important to
California as Monet was to France,” explains Scott A. Shields, the Crocker Art Museum’s
Associate Director and Chief Curator. “He is nationally recognized as one of the most
significant American artists of his generation.” Guy Rose was perhaps best known for his
landscapes, but was equally skilled at painting still lifes and the figure. His deft touch and approach to color were influenced
by French example more so than any other artist of the American West. The collection will feature nearly 40 of Rose’s
paintings representing the breadth of the artist’s styles, subjects, and achievements, from an early figurative painting
shown at the Paris Salon to his final Monterey landscapes.

rips to its canvas after it was stolen from a Zurich gallery. Lukas Gloor told a news
conference in Zurich on Friday that the repairs will take time but he is confident they will
restore the work to its former state. Four men were arrested in Serbia earlier this month
when a pan-European police operation led to the seizure of the painting, which was stolen from a Zurich gallery in 2008.
Masterpieces by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Edgar Degas were also taken in the heist but subsequently
recovered.

Pieter Bruegel Unseen! The Hidden Antwerp Collections exhibition. For the first time ever, the

The exhibition will however also unveil another gem: a landscape drawing by the master
newly discovered by curator Manfred Sellink. Fritz Mayer van den Bergh (1858-1901) was a
passionate art collector with a keen eye for masterpieces. One of his favourite artists was
Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Museum Mayer van den Bergh owns two world-renowned works by the Flemish master: Dulle
Griet (Mad Meg) and Twaalf Spreuken (Twelve Proverbs). In addition to these paintings, however, the museum’s collection

‘See Yesterday…Today’.Today invites outdoor visitors to see the Reynolda landscape as if they were in the late
1910s and early 1920s using archival photographs and images - Reynolda House Museum of American Art Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Throughout the spring and summer of 2012, Reynolda House Museum of American Art is celebrating the landscape of
Reynolda, along with the landscapes of other famous country estates built during the Country Place Era. A Genius for Place:
American Landscapes of the Country Place Era is on view at the Museum through August 5, 2012.
See Yesterday…Today invites outdoor visitors to see the Reynolda landscape as visitors to the Reynolda Estate might have
experienced it in the late 1910s and early 1920s, using archival photographs and images. The Reynolda landscape was
thoughtfully and artfully envisioned by Katharine Smith Reynolds alongside her landscape architect Thomas Sears. Eight
locations between the Estate’s front entrance and the boathouse at the foot of Sunset Hill are marked with signs that
highlight the beauty and history of the Reynolda landscape.

Interpret Europe Conference 2012. Caring for nature and culture: interpretation as a
management tool. Pisa, Italy (19 - 22 May 2012)
Tuscany has some of Europe’s finest landscapes, a wonderful heritage of cities, towns and villages,
and a rich artistic legacy. Our 2012 conference will be held in Pisa and the Migliarino San Rossore
Regional Park, right in the heart of the Tuscan countryside.
Tuscan landscapes offer a stunning diversity, from the Mediterranean coast to rocky mountain
summits. There are places of outstanding beauty and harmony, shaped both by nature and man. But
there are also places where this harmony is threatened, or has been lost already…

UNESCO Iraq Office Newsletter 2012 Vol.2 No.1 (January - March 2012)
During the first three months of 2012, prominent occasions of special importance animated the life of Iraqis, showing very
promising signs on the shorter and longer terms.
On behalf of UNESCO, I would like to congratulate the Iraqi government and citizens for their successful organization of the
Arab Summit in Baghdad. With its many implications, this event showed the readiness of Iraq to restore its international
and regional function.
On 8 March, the country lively celebrated with the whole world the International Women's Day. This occasion recalls the
urgent need to take courageous steps to promote gender equality in Iraq.

L'invention de l'Ecomusée - Genèse du parc d’Armorique (1957-1997) (France)
Par Rosemarie Lucas
ISBN : 978-2-7535-1817-9
Le parc d’Armorique a fêté ses 40 ans d’existence en 2010. Revenir sur ses origines et son histoire permet
d’éclairer les étapes fondamentales de développement des concepts de parc naturel régional et
d’écomusée. Une expérience difficile qui ne permet pas l’aboutissement d’un projet écomuséographique,
mais qui aura contribué à concevoir le patrimoine comme un outil dynamique de développement et à
l’installer dans l’actualité.

Getty Conservation Institute: Demonstration Assessment of Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Retrofit Lamps
Final Report prepared in support of the U.S. DOE Solid-State Lighting Technology Demonstration GATEWAY Program
This document is a report of observations and results obtained from a lighting demonstration project conducted under the
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) GATEWAY Demonstration Program. The program supports demonstrations of highperformance solid-state lighting (SSL) products in order to develop empirical data and experience with in-the-field
applications of this advanced lighting technology. The DOE GATEWAY Demonstration Program focuses on providing a
source of independent, third-party data for use in decision-making by lighting users and professionals; this data should be
considered in combination with other information relevant to the particular site and application under examination. Each
GATEWAY Demonstration compares SSL products against the incumbent technologies used in that location. Depending on
available information and circumstances, the SSL product may also be compared to alternate lighting technologies. Though
products demonstrated in the GATEWAY program may have been prescreened for performance, DOE does not endorse any
commercial product or in any way guarantee that users will achieve the same results through use of these products.

Le Net Art au musée. Stratégies de conservation des oeuvres en ligne
Auteur: Anne Laforest
Éditeur: Questions théoriques - Niveau : Universitaire
ISBN: 978-2917131046
Le net art - la création artistique par et pour Internet - rejoint depuis quelques années les collections des
musées, posant de nouvelles et complexes questions de conservation et d'exposition.
D'une part, les matériaux numériques de ces oeuvres sont fragiles; d'autre part, le déploiement complet de
leur dispositif suppose qu'elles soient en ligne et activées par leurs visiteurs. Il faut donc tenir compte à la
fois de la matérialité particulière des oeuvres et de la façon dont la conservation dialogue avec les autres fonctions du
musée.
Anne Laforet présente et interroge les différentes stratégies de conservation expérimentées par les musées, les archives,
les artistes, etc. Documentation, émulation, migration, partition, ré-interprétation, auto-archivage, archivage automatique
et en tire la proposition d'une conservation hybride, celle du " musée archéologique ".

Le Parc national des Calanques rejoint la famille des parcs nationaux français - France
Le Premier ministre, François Fillon, Ministre de l'Ecologie, du Développement durable, des Transports et
du Logement, a signé le 18 avril 2012 le décret de création du Parc national des Calanques.
Il s'agit du 10ème parc national français et du premier parc périurbain d'Europe. Paysage emblématique
de la Provence méditerranéenne, le site des Calanques est connu dans le monde entier pour sa valeur
paysagère, sa biodiversité et son patrimoine culturel.
Le Parc national des Calanques est avant tout un parc maritime, puisque 90% de sa surface est en mer. Il
s'inscrit dans le cadre des objectifs de la stratégie nationale pour la création et la gestion des aires
marines protégées.
Le projet a été mis en place par le Groupement d'intérêt public des calanques, en concertation avec les acteurs locaux.

COMPETITONS - Appel à projets - Travaux de Restauration de milieux naturels Ministère français de l'environnement - Date limite de candidature: 22 juin 2012
Les aires protégées constituent un élément important du maillage écologique du territoire,
souvent réservoirs de biodiversité mais aussi corridors écologiques. Elles sont devenues en
quelques décennies des territoires de très forts enjeux d’interface nature/société car elles
constituent un socle important d’activités, voire d’identités, territoriales. Les pratiques de
conservation de la biodiversité ne peuvent désormais plus s’extraire des contextes
sociétaux : trop souvent perçues comme facteurs de contraintes supplémentaires, les aires
protégées peuvent aussi être des vecteurs de « croissance verte ». Conduire des opérations exemplaires de restauration
des milieux naturels est la démarche la plus à même de faire évoluer les représentations collectives et de les inscrire dans
une gestion patrimoniale « intégrée » et donc de développement durable « territorialisé ».
C’est la raison pour laquelle le présent appel à projets permettra d’apporter un concours financier à des investissements
ayant pour finalité la restauration de milieux naturels dégradés nécessaires aux continuités écologiques, qui conjuguent
génie écologique et implication des acteurs du territoire.

L'invention de l'Ecomusée - Genèse du parc d’Armorique (1957-1997) (France)
Par Rosemarie Lucas
ISBN : 978-2-7535-1817-9
Le parc d’Armorique a fêté ses 40 ans d’existence en 2010. Revenir sur ses origines et son histoire permet
d’éclairer les étapes fondamentales de développement des concepts de parc naturel régional et
d’écomusée. Une expérience difficile qui ne permet pas l’aboutissement d’un projet écomuséographique,
mais qui aura contribué à concevoir le patrimoine comme un outil dynamique de développement et à

Histoire de la recherche agricole en Afrique tropicale francophone
De l'histoire de l'Afrique, a fortiori de celle de l'agriculture de ce continent, qu'en sait aujourd'hui le citoyen
français moyen ? Fort peu le plus souvent, en raison d'une éducation restée trop longtemps eurocentriste.
Difficile dans ces conditions de s'imaginer que "ceux d'en bas", vivant au sud du Sahara, qui plus est des
paysans, aient pu faire preuve d'une extraordinaire créativité durant durant des siècles, notamment en
matière d'agriculture. Or le "voyage", d'une durée de 10.000 années auquel nous invite l'agronome
français René Tourte, nous conduit à voir l'Afrique autrement, sans a priori, tel qu'elle est et a été. Dans
cette monumentale Histoire de la recherche agricole en Afrique tropicale francophone que la FAO vient de
faire paraître sur son site Internet, soit six volumes et quelque 3.000 pages fruit d'une quinzaine d'année de travail de

Revue du patrimoine mondial N°62 - Patrimoine mondial et peuples autochtones
ISSN 1020-4520
EAN 3059630102629
Les populations autochtones possèdent une connexion puissante et intime avec les terres sur lesquelles
elles vivent. Leur identité culturelle façonne (et est façonnée à son tour par) leur environnement naturel.
Les cultures riches et les pratiques traditionnelles de ces populations, ainsi que les problématiques
qu’elles rencontrent dans le monde actuel, réfèrent à de nombreuses sphères telles que le développement
économique, l’environnement et les droits de l’homme. L’article principal rédigé par M. Tumu te Heuheu,
Grand Chef de la tribu maorie Ngati Tuwharetoa de Nouvelle-Zélande, ancien Président du Comité du patrimoine mondial,
et M. Richard Tuheiava, Sénateur français représentant de la Polynésie française, abordera les questions clefs et les défis
liés aux populations autochtones et au patrimoine mondial. Cet article apportera de précieuses informations sur les
politiques en matière de questions autochtones.
Ce numéro traitera entre autres du peuple saami de Laponie, en Suède, et du peuple nama du Paysage culturel et
botanique du Richtersveld en Afrique du Sud qui continuent de pratiquer un style de vie semi-nomade fondé sur la
transhumance saisonnière de leurs troupeaux.

Visualiser la formation du verre en temps réel, une première !
Si le verre est l'un des matériaux les plus anciens fabriqués par l'homme puisqu'il était déjà connu des anciens Egyptiens,
sa formation à partir de poudres granulaires chauffées à plus de 1000° C n'en demeure pas moins ponctuée de zones
d'ombre. D'où l'importance des travaux menée par une équipe du Laboratoire Surface du Verre et Interfaces (CNRS/SaintGobain), en collaboration avec l'Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie (CNRS/Université Toulouse III-Paul
Sabatier), le Laboratoire Sciences et Ingénierie des Matériaux et Procédés (CNRS/Institut Polytechnique de GrenobleUniversité Joseph Fourier, Grenoble) et l'INRIA Saclay (Parietal), travaux dont les résultats sont publiés sur le site de The

Etude des protéines dans les échantillons du Patrimoine Culturel par spectrométrie Raman et analyse
protéomique
Par Sophie Dallongeville L'analyse d'échantillons du Patrimoine Culturel est primordiale pour des questions de
compréhension de technique, de conservation et de restauration. Cependant, ces échantillons sont rares et précieux et
l'analyse doit être effectuée sur une faible quantité de matière, ce qui nécessite le développement et l'optimisation de
méthodes analytiques appropriées. L'objectif de ce travail de thèse a donc été de développer des méthodes analytiques
dans le but d'étudier les protéines dans des échantillons du Patrimoine Culturel. Les changements structuraux et les
modifications chimiques des protéines des liants de peinture, provoqués par interaction avec les autres composés ou par le
vieillissement ont été mis en évidence grâce à l'utilisation de la micro-spectrométrie Raman et de l'analyse protéomique.
Les travaux ont ensuite ciblés un type de substance protéique abondamment utilisé en tant qu'adhésif et liant de peinture :
la colle animale. Une méthodologie, basée sur l'analyse par spectrométrie de masse à haute résolution et permettant
l'identification de l'espèce d'origine des colles animales est présentée. Elle a été appliquée avec succès sur un échantillon
de dorure du 18ème siècle révélant ainsi la nature de la colle animale utilisée pour la préparation de la couche d'apprêt et
pour la fixation des feuilles d'or. Enfin, une problématique liée à l'identification du contenu des amphores, qui est à l'heure
actuelle un véritable challenge à cause des conditions de conservation des objets archéologiques, a été abordée. Le
développement d'une méthode d'analyse protéomique permettant d'identifier les résidus de protéines piégés dans les
tessons d'amphores archéologiques est exposée.

Microstratigraphic evidence of in situ fire in the Acheulean strata of Wonderwerk Cave, Northern Cape
Province (South Africa)
By Francesco Bernaa, Paul Goldberga, Liora Kolska Horwitzc, James Brinkd, Sharon Holtd, Marion Bamfordf and Michael
Chazang The ability to control fire was a crucial turning point in human evolution, but the question when hominins first
developed this ability still remains. Here we show that micromorphological and Fourier transform infrared
microspectroscopy (mFTIR) analyses of
intact sediments at the site of Wonderwerk Cave, Northern Cape province, South Africa, provide unambiguous evidence—in
the form of burned bone and ashed plant remains—that burning took place in the cave during the early Acheulean
occupation, approximately 1.0 Ma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the earliest secure evidence for burning in an
archaeological context.

Recherche en physique et chimie des matériaux
Le sable et ses mystères
Par JACQUES LAPAIRE et PAUL MIEVILLE
ISBN : 978-2-7159-2526-7
Quand on voit du sable, on n’imagine pas qu’il a parcouru parfois des milliers de kilomètres,
provenant de paysages des plus fantastiques car modelés par l’érosion. Ni l’extraordinaire variété de
ce qu’il renferme parmi ses grains minuscules : minéraux divers, dont parfois de l’or ou des pierres
précieuses, restes animaux récents ou fossiles, et même graines de végétaux. Suffisamment grossi,
cela donne des clichés magnifiques.
Quant aux hommes qui côtoient ce sable, ils sont extraordinairement divers : géologues, ingénieurs, industriels, bien sûr,
mais aussi plasticiens qui en font des oeuvres d’art, musiciens qui le font chanter... et collectionneurs qui vont le recueillir
aux quatre coins de la planète.
Tout cela à voir et à apprendre dans un livre très documenté et richement illustré.

Getty Conservation Institute: Demonstration Assessment of Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Retrofit Lamps
Final Report prepared in support of the U.S. DOE Solid-State Lighting Technology Demonstration GATEWAY Program
This document is a report of observations and results obtained from a lighting demonstration project conducted under the
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) GATEWAY Demonstration Program. The program supports demonstrations of highperformance solid-state lighting (SSL) products in order to develop empirical data and experience with in-the-field
applications of this advanced lighting technology. The DOE GATEWAY Demonstration Program focuses on providing a
source of independent, third-party data for use in decision-making by lighting users and professionals; this data should be
considered in combination with other information relevant to the particular site and application under examination. Each
GATEWAY Demonstration compares SSL products against the incumbent technologies used in that location. Depending on
available information and circumstances, the SSL product may also be compared to alternate lighting technologies. Though
products demonstrated in the GATEWAY program may have been prescreened for performance, DOE does not endorse any
commercial product or in any way guarantee that users will achieve the same results through use of these products.

New MA Programme: Buddhist art and its conservation - The Courtauld Institute of Art. London (United
Kingdom)
The Courtauld Institute of Art is delighted to announce the creation of a new MA programme in Buddhist Art: History and
Conservation. Generously funded by an endowment of £2.5 million by The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation of Hong
Kong, the programme will operate in collaboration with School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).
Professor Deborah Swallow, Märit Rausing Director of The Courtauld, and previously Keeper of the Asian Department at the
Victoria and Albert Museum, said: “The new MA integrates The Courtauld’s strengths in conservation, art history and
curating in a remarkably innovative manner. I am delighted that this initiative, which draws on the international excellence
of our partner SOAS, reflects our long-term goals and those of The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation, as well as The
Courtauld’s expansion into the field of Asian art.”

Mucha's "Slav Epic" moved to Prague without approval - Conservationists and art
historians warn temporary venue could damage the paintings - Veletrzni Palac,
Prague (Czech Republic)
The remaining 15 canvases of the Czech artist Alphonse Mucha’s “Slav Epic” cycle have been
removed without approval from the Moravian town of Moravsky Krumlov and taken to Prague,
according to the Alphonse Mucha Foundation. The canvases will be reunited with the five other
parts and the entire series of 20 canvases is due to go on show at Prague’s Veletrzni Palac
(Trade Fair Palace). But leading conservationists and art historians say this venue could cause
severe damage to the paintings, which Mucha considered his masterpiece. “It’s a very serious mistake,” says Petr Kuthan,
the head of restoration at the Czech National Gallery in Prague.
The foundation wants the monumental work, which depicts the history of the Slavic people, to be housed in Prague’s main
train station. “We have issued a formal letter of intent, signed by us, the Czech railways and the Italian developer
overhauling the station,” says John Mucha, the artist’s grandson and the president of the foundation.

City Approves Marine Stadium Restoration - Miami, Florida (USA)
On March 8, Miami commissioners voted 3-2 in favor of a plan to renovate Miami
Marine Stadium, a 1960s modernist building on Virginia Key. The vote of approval
comes after years of campaigning by Friends of Miami Marine Stadium, a
grassroots group who successfully nominated the site to the 2010 Watch.
Following Watch-listing, WMF contributed to a study demonstrating reuse
potential. Following the March decision, Friends of Miami Marine Stadium have
two years to develop a fundraising strategy and a viable operational plan.

Current Technical Research into Painting in Britain from 1550 - 1850 Conference Tate Britain, London (United Kingdom) 30 March 2012
More than 100 paintings conservators and researchers gathered at Tate Britain in London on
30th March 2012 to hear about new insights into the techniques and practices behind some of
the greatest art works produced in Britain between the 16th to 19th centuries. The conference
was supported by the Clothworkers’ Foundation, and took place in the Clore Building of the Tate
Britain gallery.
Results included those of the National Portrait Gallery's 5-year project “Making Art in Tudor
Britain”.
This 5-year project that aims to examine over 120 paintings from the 16th and early 17th century using techniques such as
X-radiography (X-ray), infrared reflectography (IRR), dendrochronology, microscopy and paint sampling.

Colossus Re-Erected at Memnon - Egypt
The Colossi of Memnon have been famous landmarks in the Nile Valley since
antiquity. Originally, however, there were three pairs of colossal statues, two on
either side of each monumental gateway, or pylon, of Pharaoh Amenhotep III's
mortuary temple. Along with the rest of the vast temple, these colossi vanished in
antiquity after a series of earthquakes, leaving the two famous Colossi of Memnon
as the only major visible remnants. Excavations and WMF-supported conservation
work have been ongoing at the site since the first World Monuments Watch-listing
in 1998, and over several seasons large sections of toppled colossi have been uncovered. On March 1 a ceremony marked
the partial re-erection of one of the colossi. The conserved head and torso will be mounted early next year. A slideshow of
some recent work is available online.

Norway's one and only painted stone Madonna from the Middle Ages
Mould has been eating away at this sculpture for centuries and loosening and fading the paint.
The curators have just a few months to save the remains, because the sculpture is going back to Holdhus
Church in western Norway.
Mille Stein, a painting restorer and researcher, says that the paint is from the Middle Ages.
Although the paint has lost its original hue and the gold no longer shines like new, they would rather
conserve the sculpture as it is rather than restore it to its original look.
The sculpture, which dates back to the 1450s, glowed of gold, blue, deep green and red when it was new.

February 2012
A Research Libraries UK and Preservation Advisory Centre joint seminar for RLUK members which
explored the relationship between research libraries' approaches to preservation and conservation
and the wider context of their overall strategy for collection management.
This one day seminar examined how research libraries are addressing collections issues in terms
of decision making, risk assessment and prioritisation. Speakers presented on using preservation
as a strategy now and in the future; using digital surrogates as a preservation strategy; issues around disposal and the
need to preserve the national collection. The seminar consisted of a mixture of presentations and breakout discussion
sessions and provided the opportunity to consider ways to take forward the work completed as part of the jointly funded
three-year Preservation Learning Project which ends in March 2012.

A ceremony was held on March 18 to celebrate the completion of the first phase of restoration at San Jose Church in Ouro
Preto, Brazil. Located at the top of one of many picturesque hills in the town, the church was neglected and closed to
parishioners for more than 20 years. WMF launched a restoration project three years ago in collaboration with the
Prefeitura de Ouro Preto and Instituto do Patrimônio Histórico e Artístico Nacional. The Archbishop of Mariana celebrated a
high mass at the ceremony, which was attended by many members of the local community and representatives of the

Thunderstorms, Wild Turkeys and Broken Glass: A History of Glass Preservation at the Philip
Johnson Glass House - New Canaan - Connecticut - USA
It appeared this winter in the lower lite to the right of the main door—a four to five inch crack almost
invisible to the eye, like “a hair in the glass” according to Brendan Tobin, Manager of Buildings and
Grounds at the Glass House. Tobin immediately scheduled a replacement.
Though this year’s crack was a slight one, a few of the broken glass stories are nothing short of
frightening. Before 3/8” tempered glass (safety glass) replaced the original glass, broken lites posed real
danger. The shards were the size of a pizza slice and larger, and once a piece of plate glass broke,
fragments could hang guillotine-like from the upper steel frame of the house…

communities in the country. Among the works is the restoration of the Monument La Gruta, La Esperanza Intibucá and of
the House of Culture Choluteca, as well as the reconstruction of the House of Culture Taulabé.
The works in these spaces, chosen by their importance for the strengthening of the identity and because they favor social
cohesion with neighboring communities, will continue for three and a half years.

The Mill / Rural Design - 2011 - Dingwall, Scotland (United Kingdom)
Incorporating the few remaining freestanding walls of a former mill building, the project
engages with the buildings past, without replication of its traditional forms.
The starting point for the Mill project was the few freestanding walls that remained on the
site. The existing walls created a series of courtyards, some of which has begun to be reinhabited by nature.
Our clients brief was for a large family house. We were keen to re-imagine the building in a
progressive form, layering a series of forms over the ruins to create a clear juxtaposition of
old and new.
Some elements are clearly defined as freestanding objects, the Garden Room, Gym and Garage building slide alongside the
existing walls, the new raised upper story is overlaid, with a folded larch roof and wall floating over the castle-like structure
of the existing walls.

Renovation of the Baeza Town Hall / Viar Estudio Arquitectura - 2011 - Baeza (Spain)
The Baeza Township Project has been read as a unit in a duration, as a constant change process
where the new design has been thought as an additional stratum, as the last sediment layer in
time the building has created. The thought about the temporal process of architecture is
fundamental.
Historical architecture is based on overlays, accumulating many different pasts in what could be
called the «durée» of architecture. Henri Bergson said that the ultimate reality is not the being,
nor the changing being, but the continuous process of change which he called «durée» or duration.
Architecture has a way of being in time, a becoming that lasts, a change that is substance on its own.

Director of the E.G. Büehrle Foundation says Cezanne damaged in heist can be
restored - Zurich, Switzerland
A Swiss art expert says a $110 million painting by Paul Cezanne damaged following a
robbery four years ago can be restored. The director of the E.G. Buehrle foundation that
owns the painting says the French impressionist's work "The Boy in the Red Vest" suffered
rips to its canvas after it was stolen from a Zurich gallery. Lukas Gloor told a news
conference in Zurich on Friday that the repairs will take time but he is confident they will
restore the work to its former state. Four men were arrested in Serbia earlier this month
when a pan-European police operation led to the seizure of the painting, which was stolen from a Zurich gallery in 2008.
Masterpieces by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Edgar Degas were also taken in the heist but subsequently
recovered.

Découverte d'oeufs fossiles de dinosaures en Tchétchénie - Fédération de Russie
Les participants d'une expédition géologique dans la république nord-caucasienne de Tchétchénie ont découvert un groupe
d'oeufs fossiles dans le district de Charoïski.
L'équipe a trouvé une quarantaine d'oeufs avec des diamètres de 24 à 100 cm. " L'image d'une section montre que sa
coquille, le jaune et l'albumen sont bien délimités. Nous avons pris plusieurs échantillons pour vérifier la composition
chimique et physique " a indiqué M. Dzhabrailov de l'université d'Etat de Tchétchénie.
Les scientifiques pensent que ces oeufs sont ceux de dinosaures herbivores vivants il y a environ 60 millions d'années.
Cette découverte est une première du genre en Tchétchénie.

Sur les traces de l'homme en Aquitaine - Un site pour s'initier à l'archéologie
préhistorique et découvrir la vie de nos lointains ancêtres
L'établissement Cap Sciences de Bordeaux (France) propose un site dédié au mode de vie des
hommes du Paléolithique supérieur (- 35 000 à - 9 000 ans) dans la région Aquitaine. Ce site,
intitulé Sur les traces de l'homme en Aquitaine, s'adresse aux jeunes à partir de 8 ans
environ.
Le site nous conduit sur un chantier de fouilles. Le chantier est organisé en 6 espaces :
Art mobilier, Outillage, Feu et alimentation, Chasse et cueillette, Sépultures, Tente de
l'archéologue. En cliquant sur l'un de ces espaces, nous avons accès à différents objets. L'espace "outils" par exemple
présente la pointe de flèche, le biface, le galet, le racloir, etc. Chaque objet est décrit dans un court texte.

Emergence et développement de l'archéologie préhistorique en Midi Toulousain entre 19e et 20e siècle
Par Sébastien Dubois Dès le milieu du XIXe siècle, Toulouse apparaît comme un pôle dynamique du développement des
études en archéologie préhistorique. " Laboratoire " d'expériences institutionnelles de la jeune discipline, enseignements
universitaires, revues, sociétés savantes et musées toulousains favorisent en effet l'implantation d'une communauté
scientifique dont l'examen sociologique révèle l'ampleur des réseaux à différentes échelles, notamment à travers l'étude
des correspondances et archives personnelles de ces premiers préhistoriens.Parmi les nombreuses personnalités
scientifiques ayant participé à ce développement et favorisé l'essor des recherches en ce domaine, la figure d'Emile
Cartailhac (1845-1921) apparaît comme emblématique de cette communauté savante. La longue et prolifique carrière de
ce scientifique provincial, son engagement dans la structuration de la communauté locale, ses relations avec les savants
français et étrangers ainsi que son implication active dans les grands débats de son époque le placent au cœur d'une
problématique visant à redéfinir le rôle de ces érudits locaux dans la constitution des savoirs entre XIXe et XXe siècle. Ce
travail propose donc à travers l'étude de la pensée et de la production de ce préhistorien toulousain, notamment par

Des Armes et des Hommes. L'archerie à la transition fin du Néolithique/Age du Bronze en Europe occidentale Université Toulouse Le Mirail. Toulouse II (France)
Part importante de l'armement préhistorique pour les périodes récentes (quantitativement et qualitativement), l'archerie
représente un objet d'étude riche en développements problématiques. A l'aube de l'introduction progressive de la
métallurgie dans les usages techniques, il est intéressant de saisir le ou les processus de transferts mis en œuvre.
Transition chronologique (Néolithique/Age du bronze), transition matérielle (types de pièces produites et types de
matériaux employés) et transition comportementale sont ainsi envisagées pour parvenir à préciser le statut de cet
armement dans les sociétés concernées. En nous basant sur la caractérisation de la panoplie de l'archer, sur l'identification
des contextes de fabrication, sur la reconnaissance des champs fonctionnels (utilisations et usagers) et sur l'analyse archéobalistique des vestiges de traumatismes par flèches dans le cadre de violences interhumaines, il en résulte un ensemble
exhaustif qui renouvelle sensiblement la perception de cet armement dans le temps et dans les usages.

Trust for African Rock Art (TARA) Newsletter (December 2011)
TARA, the Trust for African Rock Art, was founded in 1996 by photographer David Coulson under the
patronage of renowned archaeologist, Mary Leakey, and author/conservationist, Laurens van der Post.
Based in Nairobi, Kenya, TARA is committed to recording the rich rock art heritage of the entire African
continent, to making this information widely available and accessible and, to the extent possible,
safeguarding those sites most threatened by both humans and nature, no matter how remote.
TARA achieves this through survey and conservation work, documentation, exhibitions, publications and
community projects. TARA has documented rock art in 19 African countries and digitised over 20,000
images, many of which are available online. It is estimated that over one million people have visited TARA’s exhibitions.
The organisation also works closely with communities in areas where rock art is found, in order to raise awareness of rock
art as a fragile heritage resource, and to improve the lives of people in those communities.

Microstratigraphic evidence of in situ fire in the Acheulean strata of Wonderwerk Cave, Northern Cape
Province (South Africa)
By Francesco Bernaa, Paul Goldberga, Liora Kolska Horwitzc, James Brinkd, Sharon Holtd, Marion Bamfordf and Michael
Chazang The ability to control fire was a crucial turning point in human evolution, but the question when hominins first
developed this ability still remains. Here we show that micromorphological and Fourier transform infrared
microspectroscopy (mFTIR) analyses of
intact sediments at the site of Wonderwerk Cave, Northern Cape province, South Africa, provide unambiguous evidence—in
the form of burned bone and ashed plant remains—that burning took place in the cave during the early Acheulean
occupation, approximately 1.0 Ma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the earliest secure evidence for burning in an
archaeological context.

New Research: Some Dinosaur Groups Diminishing Before Mass Extinction - American
Museum of Natural History. New York City, New York State (USA)
Were dinosaurs already undergoing a long-term decline before an asteroid hit at the end of the
Cretaceous about 65.5 million years ago? A new study led by Museum scientists gives a multifaceted
answer.
The findings, published online today in the journal Nature Communications, suggest that in general,
large-bodied, “bulk-feeding” herbivores were declining during the last 12 million years of the
Cretaceous Period. But carnivorous dinosaurs and mid-sized herbivores were not.
The research team, which includes Brusatte; Mark Norell, chair of the Museum’s Division of Paleontology; and scientists
Richard Butler of Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and Albert Prieto-Márquez from the Bavarian State Collection for
Palaeontology, both in Germany, is the first to look at dinosaur extinction based on “morphological disparity”—the
variability of body structure within particular groups of dinosaurs.

Simon Coencas venaient de découvrir l'une des plus importantes grottes paléolithiques ornées montrant
une véritable richesse et une impressionnante variété dans ses œuvres pariétales. "On est descendus

l'invention de la photographie elle-même. L'Université de Lausanne a entrepris de mettre en
valeur les trésors accumulés depuis 400 ans dans les bibliothèques de Suisse et même d'audelà, par le projet Viaticalpes.
Des milliers de gravures et d'illustrations réparties du 16 ième au 19 ième siècle permettent
de remonter le temps, de voir l'évolution, de retrouver des traces, de reconstituer l'histoire des lieux et de ceux qui y sont
passés. Les possibilités sont immenses. À voir.

Planetarium, Centre for Eco Tourism, and Science and Technology Centre / JB
Ferrari & Associates- Chalet-à-Gobet - Lausanne - Switzerland
The iconic nature of the winning proposal for the Planetarium, Centre for Eco Tourism,
and Science and Technology Centre is balanced by a rational response to the brief and
the constraints of the site. By isolating the planetarium and the activities linked closely
to it the design by JB Ferrari & Associates is able to exploit the strong potential for
volumetric expression. This allows for a more subdued intervention to the historic
buildings. Seemingly evident, such a direction is not an obvious reading of the brief but
is made possible through astute reinterpretation of the district plan.

Public Review: Promoting Sustainable Destinations - Global Sustainable Tourism Council Destination Criteria Deadline for comments and suggested edits: 2 June 2012
To promote sustainable tourism at a destination level, the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) has established the
GSTC Criteria for Destinations. The development of these criteria has followed a similar path as the original GSTC Criteria
for Hotels and Tour Operators. The Destinations Working Group developed a set of draft criteria based on input from
destination experts around the globe. These draft criteria were submitted to the GSTC International Standards Working
Group for review and input.
The GSTC Criteria for Destinations is available here for public review until June 2, 2012. All comments will be reviewed and
modifications will be made to improve the draft criteria in line with ISEAL guidelines. The draft criteria will be applied and
tested in up to 10 destinations over the next year. Results from the GSTC Early Adopter Program (see below) will be
incorporated into the final version of the criteria.

Civil War shipwreck in the way of Georgia port project - Savannah, Georgia (USA)
Before government engineers can deepen one of the nation's busiest seaports to
accommodate future trade, they first need to remove a $14 million obstacle from the past —
a Confederate warship rotting on the Savannah River bottom for nearly 150 years.
Confederate troops scuttled the ironclad CSS Georgia to prevent its capture by Gen. William

bottom ever since. Now, the Civil War shipwreck sits in the way of a government agency's
$653 million plan to deepen the waterway that links the nation's fourth-busiest container
port to the Atlantic Ocean. The ship's remains are considered so historically significant that dredging the river is prohibited
within 50 feet of the wreckage.

Paharpur : un village célèbre son patrimoine mondial en présence de la Directrice
générale - Bangladesh
En cette journée du 10 mai, tandis que l’hélicoptère descendait sur un fascinant patchwork de
rizières, d’étangs et de villages à perte de vue, la population de Paharpur s’était réunie pour
accueillir par des danses, des chants et des fleurs le premier Directeur général de l’UNESCO à
rendre visite à leur site inscrit au patrimoine mondial.
C’est ici, à quelque 300 kilomètres au nord de la capitale du Bangladesh, qu’au 6e siècle
l’empereur Dharmapala de la dynastie Pala fit édifier le deuxième plus grand monastère au sud
de l’Himalaya.

Fellowships - Remise des aides à projets 2012 de la Fondation VMF (Vieilles Maisons Françaises): un soutien à
une quinzaine d'initiatives - France
Créée en 2009 sous l'égide de la Fondation du Patrimoine, la Fondation VMF pour la sauvegarde et le rayonnement du
patrimoine défend, en France et dans le monde, le patrimoine français ou d'influence française. A ce titre, elle prolonge
l'action de l'association Vielles Maisons Françaises, présente sur le terrain depuis 1958.
La Fondation VMF a choisi d'apporter son expertise et son soutien, en priorité, au patrimoine en péril, afin d'aider à sauver
des lieux gravement menacés, en amont du projet de restauration.
Cette année, ce sont huit projets, parmi de nombreux dossiers reçus, que la Fondation VMF a choisi d'aider dans la
catégorie "Patrimoine en péril" pour un montant total de 108 000 €.

Création d'un fonds de solidarité pour la sauvegarde des moulins - France
Lors de la dernière Assemblée Générale de la Fédération Française des Associations de sauvegarde des Moulins (FFAM) à
Marigny, il a été décidé la création d’un fonds de solidarité dit "Fonds d’interventions collectives".
Ce fonds, alimenté par des dons, doit permettre aux propriétaires de seuils et moulins de faire face aux frais engendrés par
des recours en justice, à tous échelons, contre des décisions administratives injustifiées, ou pouvant faire jurisprudence.
Un recours au tribunal administratif entraine des frais de l’ordre de 4 à 5 000 euros, et une association, même importante,
n’a pas la capacité financière d’y faire face, a fortiori lorsqu’il faut aller en Cour d’appel administrative. Même chose pour un
recours en Conseil d’État.

Renovation of an old barn / Comac - 2012. Charroux (France)
Charroux, village of the XVIIth century part of the heritage of the most beautiful villages of France. An
ancient franked fortified town, eminent point of the medieval trade shining under the air of Dukes du
Bourbonnais. Today mystified, the village looks like a frozen museum where the time seems to have
stopped.
A meeting, a Project, a XVIIth century barn and a knowlegde. Sharing the passion of the place throughout a
restaurant combining the highlight of the country and cultural heritage. The barn is made of traditionals
stones walls, three wild openings are facing the North, a clay ground and a skeleton entirely recovered with
its original tiles. In the South part, a garden looking onto a street facing the city hall. A frame full of history.

The Mill / Rural Design - 2011 - Dingwall, Scotland (United Kingdom)
Incorporating the few remaining freestanding walls of a former mill building, the project
engages with the buildings past, without replication of its traditional forms.
The starting point for the Mill project was the few freestanding walls that remained on the
site. The existing walls created a series of courtyards, some of which has begun to be reinhabited by nature.
Our clients brief was for a large family house. We were keen to re-imagine the building in a
progressive form, layering a series of forms over the ruins to create a clear juxtaposition of
old and new.
Some elements are clearly defined as freestanding objects, the Garden Room, Gym and Garage building slide alongside the
existing walls, the new raised upper story is overlaid, with a folded larch roof and wall floating over the castle-like structure
of the existing walls.

MONU Magazine New Issue: Non-Urbanism
MONU – magazine on urbanism is a unique bi-annual international forum for artists, writers and designers
that are working on topics of urban culture, development and politics.
Each issue collects essays, projects and photographs from contributors from all over the world to a given
topic. Thus MONU examines the rural as a strict counterpart to the urban as it appears to be a condition of
the past. At least, this is what Kees Christiaanse posits in an interview with us entitled “The New Rural:
Global Agriculture, Desakotas, and Freak Farms”. He points out that, today, non-urban spaces interact so
frequently and intensely with urbanity that you can no longer describe something as strictly rural.
Therefore, we can no longer separate the city from the countryside as these are not polarized entities and each other’s
enemies, but rather the result of each other.

Experts Sound Alarm Over Syrian Arab Republic Archaeological Treasures
Syria's year-long revolt has exposed to looting and destruction the country's archaeological
treasures, including the ancient city of Palmyra and the Greco-Roman ruins of Apamea,
experts warned Thursday.
Most vulnerable are strife-torn areas that have fallen outside the full control of the regime
where looters have already targeted museums, excavation sites and monuments, they said.
"In the past three to four months there has been a lot of looting," said Hiba al-Sakhel,
director of museums in Syria.

Archaeologists Blast Hasty World Heritage Listings
One of the most significant global committees that you never heard of summoned a couple
of hundred experts to the island of Menorca, Spain last week. The meeting involved politics,
the remnants of great civilizations, human catastrophes, architectural triumphs, religious
works of art and architecture, use of tourism, the rise and fall of empires, and did we say
politics?
The International Committee on Archaeological Heritage Management, or ICAHM, held its
first conference on how to manage the world’s myriad archaeological World Heritage sites.
This wildly varied array of places encompasses many of the most celebrated sites of human cultural accomplishment and
catastrophe—everything from the pyramids and Roman fortifications to Mongol-era tombs and prehistoric rock art. ICAHM’s
key job is to advise the World Heritage Committee about new sites proposed for the famous list. I attended as a guest of
the Congress, which paid for my travel.

Colossus Re-Erected at Memnon - Egypt
The Colossi of Memnon have been famous landmarks in the Nile Valley since
antiquity. Originally, however, there were three pairs of colossal statues, two on
either side of each monumental gateway, or pylon, of Pharaoh Amenhotep III's
mortuary temple. Along with the rest of the vast temple, these colossi vanished in
antiquity after a series of earthquakes, leaving the two famous Colossi of Memnon
as the only major visible remnants. Excavations and WMF-supported conservation
work have been ongoing at the site since the first World Monuments Watch-listing
in 1998, and over several seasons large sections of toppled colossi have been uncovered. On March 1 a ceremony marked
the partial re-erection of one of the colossi. The conserved head and torso will be mounted early next year. A slideshow of
some recent work is available online.

World Heritage Forum. Why World Heritage: The realities and the potentials for
communities. Fremantle, Western Australia (Australia) 18 April 2012
This forum brought together experts on World Heritage and community leaders to discuss
the implications of world heritage listing of natural and cultural sites to local, state and
national communities.
The forum was held to celebrate the International Day of Monuments and Sites and to mark
the 40th anniversary of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, which was adopted in 1972.
The focus was on “World Heritage and Sustainable Development: the Role of Local
Communities” – which spans their involvement in the nomination process, management and conservation of World Heritage
sites, but also as actors and beneficiaries from a socio-economic perspective, and holders of indigenous management
practices and traditional knowledge.

Ujung Kulon National Park, Indonesia - Javan Rhinoceros (Rhinoceros sondaicus) International Rhino Foundation
The Javan rhinoceros (Rhinoceros sondaicus) is one of the rarest species of mammals and one of
the most endangered rhinoceros species, with fewer than 60 animals believed to exist in two
known populations. Between 40 and 60 individuals inhabit Ujung Kulon National Park in West
Java, Indonesia, and between three and five individuals are part of a likely non-viable population
in the Cat Loc section of Cat Tien National Park in Vietnam.
Because Javan Rhinos inhabit dense tropical forests, they are not easy targets for poachers with
guns. But they are vulnerable to poachers who use snares and traps to capture and kill the rhino so its horn can then be
removed…

The Programme provides a solid foundation in a variety of cultural economics topics and the value chain of cultural and
natural sites. It explores in detail the economic, social, institutional and legal considerations that govern the diverse
categories of UNESCO-designated World Heritage Sites.
The Master is designed by the University of Torino , the Politecnico di Torino , the International Training Centre of the ILO
(ITCILO), and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre.

Paharpur : un village célèbre son patrimoine mondial en présence de la Directrice
générale - Bangladesh
En cette journée du 10 mai, tandis que l’hélicoptère descendait sur un fascinant patchwork de
rizières, d’étangs et de villages à perte de vue, la population de Paharpur s’était réunie pour
accueillir par des danses, des chants et des fleurs le premier Directeur général de l’UNESCO à
rendre visite à leur site inscrit au patrimoine mondial.
C’est ici, à quelque 300 kilomètres au nord de la capitale du Bangladesh, qu’au 6e siècle
l’empereur Dharmapala de la dynastie Pala fit édifier le deuxième plus grand monastère au sud
de l’Himalaya.

UNESCO Iraq Office Newsletter 2012 Vol.2 No.1 (January - March 2012)
During the first three months of 2012, prominent occasions of special importance animated the life of Iraqis, showing very
promising signs on the shorter and longer terms.
On behalf of UNESCO, I would like to congratulate the Iraqi government and citizens for their successful organization of the
Arab Summit in Baghdad. With its many implications, this event showed the readiness of Iraq to restore its international
and regional function.
On 8 March, the country lively celebrated with the whole world the International Women's Day. This occasion recalls the
urgent need to take courageous steps to promote gender equality in Iraq.

IUCN and UNEP-WCMC have compiled a KML layer with key information on the natural and
mixed World Heritage sites that were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as of 1
January 2012
IUCN and UNEP-WCMC have compiled a KML layer with key information on the natural and mixed
World Heritage sites that were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as of 1 January 2012.
The information comes from the latest version of the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA).
The WDPA is a joint project of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and IUCN,
maintained at the UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre working with the IUCN World
Commission on Protected Areas, governments and collaborating non-governmental organisations.
The information originates from a wide range of sources including UNESCO, IUCN and UNEP-WCMC records, data reported

to the WDPA, and the original World Heritage nominations prepared by State Parties to the World Heritage Convention. The
recorded areas given in the KML layer were compiled from UNESCO, IUCN and UNEP-WCMC records, while the boundary
areas were calculated from the GIS boundaries recorded in the WDPA. It is planned to verify both the recorded areas and
GIS boundaries with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, and the KML layer shows which sites have been verified.

Publications
La Acequia Real de la Alhambra en época cristiana (1492-1850) Alhambra, Generalife y Albayzin.
Granada (Spain)
Juan Antonio Vilar (Autor)
ISBN: 978-8498368079
Editor: COMARES - 2011
La ACEQUIA del REY fue el cordón umbilical que nutrió de vida, durante siete siglos, a la fortaleza de la
Alhambra, a sus huertas y a sus jardines. Su fluido consiguió transformar tórridas y desiertas colinas en
frondosos bosques y exuberantes vergeles, recreando una suerte de oasis o paraíso acuático a una altura
que siempre sorprendió a sus visitantes. Su agua, a veces saltarina y risueña, a veces retenida en estanques, albercas o
aljibes, sublimó los refinados palacios alhambreños y embelesó los sentidos, aportando frescor, aromas, música y reflejos
que, cual suerte de fatas morganas, magnificaron el alcázar.
Pero aún más, esta acequia, en su tramo final, regaba a multitud de cármenes, miradores aventajados sobre la Vega y la
Sierra Nevada, suspendidos en las zonas más altas de las colinas de la Asabica, del Ahabul y del Mauror. Antes de que la
especulación y la desidia acaben definitivamente con su recuerdo, este libro pretende, con la mayor rigurosidad científica,
dejar constancia histórica del que fue su trazado, de sus instituciones, ordenanzas, servidores y beneficiarios, abriendo
paso a otros trabajos que acaben por recuperar la memoria de su pasado esplendor.

Herido por el agua - Federico García Lorca y La Alhambra (La Alhambra, Generalife y Albaicín)
Autor: Antonio Ramos Espejo
Editorial: PATRONATO DE LA ALHAMBRA Y GENERALIFE - 2012
ISBN: 978-84-86827-68-7
Herido por el agua cuenta la extraordinaria relación entre Federico García Lorca y la Alhambra. El poeta
granadino halló en el conjunto monumental una constante fuente de inspiración. Nos lo recuerda Antonio
Ramos Espejo, uno de los mayores expertos en la figura y obra de Federico. Por su libro desfilan reyes y
príncipes, viajeros, escritores, pintores, músicos, amigos y familiares que forman parte de la corte de los
viejos y nuevos hijos de la Alhambra. Hay páginas para reconocer la huella que Lorca dejó en Manuel de Falla, Juan Ramón
Jiménez, Manuel Ángeles Ortiz, Rafael Alberti, Gerald Brenan, Carlos Cano, Enrique Morente o Leonard Cohen.

Revue du patrimoine mondial N°62 - Patrimoine mondial et peuples autochtones
ISSN 1020-4520
EAN 3059630102629
Les populations autochtones possèdent une connexion puissante et intime avec les terres sur lesquelles
elles vivent. Leur identité culturelle façonne (et est façonnée à son tour par) leur environnement naturel.
Les cultures riches et les pratiques traditionnelles de ces populations, ainsi que les problématiques
qu’elles rencontrent dans le monde actuel, réfèrent à de nombreuses sphères telles que le développement
économique, l’environnement et les droits de l’homme. L’article principal rédigé par M. Tumu te Heuheu,
Grand Chef de la tribu maorie Ngati Tuwharetoa de Nouvelle-Zélande, ancien Président du Comité du patrimoine mondial,
et M. Richard Tuheiava, Sénateur français représentant de la Polynésie française, abordera les questions clefs et les défis
liés aux populations autochtones et au patrimoine mondial. Cet article apportera de précieuses informations sur les
politiques en matière de questions autochtones.
Ce numéro traitera entre autres du peuple saami de Laponie, en Suède, et du peuple nama du Paysage culturel et
botanique du Richtersveld en Afrique du Sud qui continuent de pratiquer un style de vie semi-nomade fondé sur la
transhumance saisonnière de leurs troupeaux.
