HERITAGE MONITORING

Helping Preserve Armenian Monuments

The Aragats Foundation is committed to preserving the rich past of the Caucasus. To further this mission, we are supporting the work of Caucasus Heritage Watch, a research program involving specialists from Cornell and Purdue Universities. Their mission is to conduct satellite-based monitoring of cultural heritage sites at risk  in Nagorno-Karabakh.

 

The Aragats Foundation is also deeply concerned with acts of cultural appropriation. This blog assembles a record of concerning incidents as they occur. If you have evidence of site destruction or cultural appropriation, please share with us on Twitter @aragatsfound. This program is under development. Entries will eventually be augmented with references to scholarly publications.
