WITH Putting a World of Pictures into Words, UNESCO is asking the public to join them in transcribing captions from a selection of 5,000 newly-digitized photos which demonstrate the wealth and breadth of UNESCO’s activities from 1945 to the present at https://heritagehelpers.co.uk/. These exceptional photos, available online for the very first time, document watershed UNESCO moments like the Campaign to Save the Monuments of Nubia (of which there are over 400 photos!). Other photos reveal themes of common international interest, including fundamental education, youth, journalism, space exploration, oceanography and more. 

Trouble is, it is difficult to find all the interesting treasures they contain: specific UNESCO programmes, precise locations, individuals, and all the stories these photos tell us about the history of UNESCO’s ideas and actions over the past 70 years.

INTERVIEW: UNESCO ARCHIVES DIGITIZATION PROJECT: 

ANCIENT History Encyclopedia has partnered with the UNESCO Archives, which we are very excited about. Our mission aligns very much with UNESCO, wanting to bring about peace and international understanding to the world through cultural heritage and education. We sat down with Mr. Adam Cowling, the Digitization Project Manager to talk about their project and where it is headed. What they do in their archives is absolutely fascinating.
