Taking into account that the issues of culture and nature are inseparable, ANHER was a project which aimed to present archaeological heritage with its connections to natural heritage.

Teaching about integrated cultural and natural heritage is still a new thing, therefore the main objective of ANHER was a production of a range of new didactic materials covering the most pertaining aspects of the green archaeological heritage and archaeological dimension of natural heritage.

The innovative didactic content have a form of eight modules covering such issues as:

  • sustainability of archaeological landscape management and nature conservation planning,
  • nature conservation of archaeological resources,
  • land use in perspective of integrated archaeological and natural heritage,
  • archaeological and natural heritage in landscape planning and policy analysis,
  • integrated floodplain management and its impact upon archaeological heritage,
  • integration of archaeological heritage into the historical landscape and the built environment,
  • archaeological heritage in the process of decision making in the natural heritage sector.

Two modules provide a systematic training of trainers and teachers using different methods of distance learning, in particular:

  • covering complexity of training delivery, including specific needs of trainees,
  • production of course curricula,
  • use of available didactic resources,
  • delivery of training to different target groups using methods of distance learning.

All newly produced didactic materials are stored in the Content Repository – a kind of interactive database of e-learning resources in the field of protection and management of archaeological heritage. Its major functionality is a capacity to create tailored e-learning content to meet needs of different trainees.
