Thematic Summary

Cultural heritage is both a celebration of diversity and shared communities of the human race. It is an irreplaceable resource at risk from acts of nature, climate change, political unrest or armed conflict. When a site, monument or artefact is destroyed, so is the knowledge it imparts to us and future generations, and its loss has a profound impact on social, political and economic factors for those communities affected. Innovative, digitally smart approaches are urgently needed to monitor, document and assess the risk to cultural heritage and assist in protecting, recovering, restoring and rebuilding these irreplaceable records of humanity’s shared past.

This special issue explores the emerging multidisciplinary methodologies and approaches to monitoring, protection, and restoration of tangible cultural heritage affected by conflict and natural disasters. It seeks to demonstrate how a modern integrated approach can successfully combine contemporary technical requirements with historical and cultural considerations, fostering future sustainable reconstruction and recovery efforts.
