MONITORING HERITAGE DESTRUCTION & APPROPRIATION
Cultural Heritage in Nagorno-Karabakh at Risk
Due to the terms of the recent ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the remains of the past in the Nagorno-Karabakh region face two key threats: physical destruction and historical appropriation. The Aragats Foundation is monitoring destruction and appropriation, and maintaining a record of newly reported incidents as they occur. Click on the links below to learn more.
The Aragats Foundation is dedicated to promoting activities that utilize the unique heritage resources of Armenia to improve communities, enhance education, and preserve the past for future generations.
Sharing Armenia's heritage with local communities and global visitors through hands-on learning.
Promoting the responsible stewardship of Armenia's archaeological heritage
Empowering local communities to pursue opportunities for heritage-oriented economic development
Our Work In Action
Camp Aragats offers opportunities for young girls from Armenia to learn the science behind archaeological research. Working alongside our distinguished faculty and staff, students learn techniques from drones and satellite imagery to excavation to pottery making. These techniques prepare students not only to study the past, but to succeed in the future.
Stay tuned for an article on Camp Aragats by Lori Khatchadourian in the December 2020 issue of Near Eastern Archaeology.
