- Types of Heritage
- Heritage: Features belonging to the culture of a particular society, such as traditions, languages, or buildings, that were created in the past and still have historical importance are known as Heritage.
- Cultural Heritage: Cultural heritage is the heritage of tangible and intangible heritage assets of a group or society that is inherited from past generations.
- Natural Heritage: Natural heritage refers to the sum total of the elements of biodiversity, including flora and fauna, ecosystems, and geological structures.
- Features belonging to the culture of a particular society, such as traditions, languages, or buildings, that were created in the past and still have historical importance are known as Heritage.
- There are two types of Heritage.
(A) Cultural Heritage and
(B) Natural Heritage
1. Cultural Heritage:
- Cultural heritage is the heritage of tangible and intangible heritage assets of a group or society that is inherited from past generations.
- Not all heritages of past generations are 'heritage'; rather, heritage is a product of selection by society.
- It is in the form of human creation.
- It is of two types - Tangible and Intangible.
A) Tangible Cultural Heritage:
- The tangible heritage refers in general to all the material traces such as archaeological sites, historical monuments, artifacts, and objects that are significant to a community, a nation, or/and humanity that we can see and physically touch.
- Immovable heritage includes buildings, historic places, and monuments.
- Moveable heritage includes books, documents, moveable artworks, music, and other artefacts that are considered worthy of preservation for the future.
B) Intangible Cultural Heritage:
- It consists of non-physical aspects of a particular culture, more often maintained by social customs during a specific period in history.
- It includes traditions or living expressions inherited from our ancestors and passed on to our descendants, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge, and practices concerning nature and the universe or the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts.
- Naturally, intangible cultural heritage is more difficult to preserve than physical objects.
2. Natural Heritage:
- Natural heritage refers to the sum total of the elements of biodiversity, including flora and fauna, ecosystems, and geological structures.
- It forms part of our natural resources.
- All varieties of heritage can be regarded as innate, real, and came into being without the human response.
- Natural Heritage is related to specific natural features, areas involving endemic species (flora and fauna), geological and physiographical formations, and sites of unique natural beauty or conservation.
- Examples of natural heritage include plants, landscapes, rivers, forests, natural falls, caves, and animals.
