Hadrian’s Wall, Great Wall to work together in heritage partnership
    2017-December-21  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A UNIQUE agreement that will see Britain’s Hadrian’s Wall and the Great Wall of China work together, was announced in early December by U.K. Heritage Minister John Glenn.

The two UNESCO World Heritage Sites will work together on research, education and tourism growth, the U.K. Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) said in an official announcement. A new Heritage Council is to be launched emphasizing value of historic environments, building consensus and ensuring greater coordination across governments.

The Great Wall and the Hadrian’s Wall will sign a unique collaboration agreement to increase the historical and cultural understanding of the two sites, Glen announced as he set out his priorities for heritage.

Representatives from the two World Heritage Sites will work together to examine the challenges and opportunities of managing large and complex archaeological remains and explore the potential of tourism growth between both countries, said DCMS.

Called the “Wall-to-Wall Collaboration,” the initiative is part of the People-to-People Dialogue, a cultural exchange between China and Britain that took place in London last week. The initiative arose from a UK-China cultural heritage event held in Beijing and Xi’an in February, during which the conservation of the two walls was one of the key topics.

Historic England and the Chinese Academy of Cultural Heritage, which manages the Great Wall, signed an agreement last week. They will hold a seminar in Newcastle next year, the first step in a wider program of collaboration between the two sites. (Xinhua)
