Abstract:

The project focuses on historic quarries as a significant part of our cultural heritage in Europe. These quarries and the skills involved in quarrying dimensional stone can be considered as the starting point of Europe’s architectural and sculptural heritage. In the 20th century, most of these sites became disused and hard to access, becoming partly re-cultivated or used as dumping grounds. The project will employ modern approaches to present and safeguard the knowledge of historic quarry sites and landscapes. On the transnational level, it will demonstrate best practice concerning how to compile and use data and information on these sites, and how to formulate ideas and implement measures to use historic quarries for modern cultural purposes once again.
