Kemmelberg website


Cultural heritage is our social capital, our collective memory. It’s a priceless source of knowledge, creativity and identity. The digitalisation trend makes these sources accessible for everyone and makes new, interactive applications possible. Heritage which is accessible and re-usable, forms nowadays and in the future a permanent base for (public) services of the managing institution. New Flemish regulations promote the cultural disclosure of archives, libraries and documentation centers, the permanent disclosure of cultural heritage and the development of expeditions from historical-cultural importance. For this reason local governments and heritage organizations try to improve their communication with the public and therefore they invest in new or contemporary disclosure systems.

An example of a contemporary disclosure system is the creation of a website which contains a lot of documentation and information on the archaeologically rich heritage of the Kemmelberg. By request of the Ename Expertisecentrum for heritage disclosure MICT will conduct preparatory research for the establishment of a website around the rich archaeology of the Kemmelberg. Three target groups are taken into account: the municipality Heuvelland, youth/education (teachers or students) and relevant and interested organizations. A website me not remain an empty box and the existence depends on the interest of several types of users. In this preparatory research wishes and desires, opportunities and treats, as well as particular features will be revealed. They will be of great importance for the eventual creation of the website.
