E-Pang Palace Archaeological Site Park, Xi'an (China)

The remains of the palace of the first emperor of China are among the biggest archaeological monuments in the world. Soon the palace will be in the centre of a new urban development project, situated to the West of modern Xi'an. In collaboration with Milan Kovač, the Ename Center developed a concept for the archaeological park focusing on the remains of the imperial palace of emperor Qin Shi Huang.

UNESCO World Heritage: Beguinage of Kortrijk

In 1998, thirteen Belgian beguinages were recognised by UNESCO as World Heritage. The beguinage of Kortrijk is the first that will be integrally interpreted. Apart from an interpretation centre where the visitor will be confronted with the surprising history of women claiming a spiritual and economically independent community of their own, there will be space for a house with authentic furniture and lay-out, an audio guide for the exploration of the beguinage and the immediate city surroundings as well as a visitor centre. The Ename Center is responsible for the whole process from concept development to content and multimedia implementation.

Heritage Policy at city level: Ronse

The responsibilities of the local governments regarding heritage are constantly growing. As a result the need for an integral heritage approach at the level of the city is growing as well. In Flanders, the city of Ronse is taking the lead in this regard. In cooperation with the Ename Center, the city government developed a global policy starting with a first general assessment of all the heritage resources available, and continuing with the development of policy tools and tools for public outreach. This approach is exemplary for the rest of Flanders and for Europe.

Battlefield Archaeology: a Pilot Project in Flanders

Over the centuries nowhere else in Europe have so many battles been fought as in Flanders. Despite this fact, battlefield archaeology is still in its infancy. In the context of two valuation studies, i.e. a study of the Battlefield of Oudenaarde 1708 (East-Flanders) and one at the Battlefield of Lafelt 1747 (Limburg), the Ename Center is developing a methodology that will be exemplary for doing research at battle fields in the whole of Flanders. This research is done at the behest of the Flemish Heritage Agency. Battlefield archaeology experts of Huddersfield University (UK) have been involved from the very start.
