The Archaeological Heritage Network was founded in 2016 in the presence of Frank Walter Steinmeier, now President of the German Federal Republic. ArcHerNet pools the expertise that exists in Germany and makes it available internationally via a network of contacts. The experience gained through the project “Zero Hour – A Future for the Time after the Crisis” and the modules it comprised were then used to further develop ArcHerNet’s approaches and objectives. Its scope has expanded to encompass new regions. In the framework of the Archaeological Heritage Network (ArcHerNet), the project “KulturGutRetter (KGR) – An emergency mechanism for cultural heritage in crisis situations” was initiated. The intention behind it is for the expertise that exists in Germany to be concentrated in a team of experts that can act quickly in the event of a crisis to provide assistance in securing, preserving and if need be salvaging objects and buildings. The project is supported by the Federal Foreign Office and the German Bundestag.
