Project
The aim of this project resides in the expansion of the knowledge, systematic documentation and definiton of objective criteria for the evaluation of a specific group of technical monuments – historical water management objects. The main goal is to develop a methodology of unambiguous identification, categorization and evaluation of historical water management objects in terms of historic preservation and renewal, based on an interdisciplinary approach. Attainment of the project’s goals through: - Documentation and analysis and analysis of the water management objects‘ evolution in chosen study areas, using historical topographical maps of five different periods, as well as archive sources, - Comparative analysis of the historical water management objets‘ development in study areas, taking into consideration different conditions both natural and socio-economic The project’s outcomes will be: - A set of maps, - The methodology of identification, categorization and evaluation of historialc water management objects. The methodology will be a significant contribution to further research activities involving documentation, evaluation, preservation and renewal of this specific cultural heritage fund. The map sets will be implemented in the National Heritage Institute’s information system, so that the information system will be extended with a new comprehensive thematic database of historical water management from five different historical periods and various regions of the Czech Republic. Moreover, a new database of the identified historical water management objects in the selected study sites will be integrated into the ifnormation system. The aforementioned maps will illustrate the development over the period from the objects' origin to the present. To enhance the public‘s awareness and to promote this type of cultural and technical heritage, an exhibition (cenceived as traveling) will be held. A critical catalog will be published.
