HEART is undertaking a project to build a Tibetan Heritage Museum in the village of Langtang to help with recovery after the community was badly hit by the 2015 earthquake.
The sediments in lakes accumulate over thousands of years, and in all that time they capture microscopic plant remains, like pollen, that can be used to reconstruct the ancient environment.
Much of Nepalese history is passed through the generations by word of mouth rather than as written documents. HEART is undertaking an ongoing programme of recording these unique and personal histories.
HEART is exploring ways that digital heritage technologies like e-museums can create a space for Tibetan communities in diaspora around the world to share their heritage.
HEART assisted with the restoration of the Nyingma-pa Buddhist monastery in the Himalayan village of Langtang.
