OUR CULTURAL & NATURAL HERITAGE (4th Cultural Week)



This year's cultural week (the 4th) is going to be devoted to our cultural and natural heritage.
Heritage refers to something inherited from the past. The word has several different senses, including:
Britain is a country that is proud of its cultural and natural heritage and preserves it excelently. Here are links to pages. You'll see that they are much more successful and aware of their heritage and its protection than us.

- ENGLISH HERITAGE
English Heritage is an executive non-departmental public body of the British Government sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. It was set up under the terms of the National Heritage Act 1983. Its functions for maintaining ancient monuments and advising on the care of the historic environment in England. English Heritage's best known role is managing over 400 significant historical and archaeological sites, from Stonehenge to the world's earliest iron bridge. It directly owns some historic sites and also collaborates with private owners of others that are managed under guardianship arrangements. It has major responsibilities in conservation, giving advice, registering and protecting the historic environment. It also maintains a public archive: the English Heritage Archive.  English Heritage complements the work of Natural England.

Natural England is the non-departmental public body of the UK government responsible for ensuring that England's natural environment, including its land, flora and fauna, freshwater and marine environments, geology and soils, are protected and improved. It also has a responsibility to help people enjoy, understand and access the natural environment.
This video is about one of the most famous English heritage sites and wonders of the world. Stonehenge is estimate to be as old as 3100 BC. There is no record on how primitive humans could have put together such a large and hefty monument.
