discussion post


Please visit the UNESCO World Heritage List of world heritage sites. Click on different sites within the United States and all over the world. 

Pick 2 sites (at least 1 should be from outside the United States) that you find particularly interesting, and focus your discussion of the following:

  • Identify the sites you have chosen and why you find them to be significant.
  • Why is it important to protect these sites? 
  • In your post, consider how tourists visiting these sites, for example, can generate revenue and employment for the local economy. 
  • Thinking as a cultural anthropologist, how would you argue for the preservation of these sites?
