Cultural heritage - Sites
A site is a delimited area that contains one or several cultural heritage monuments or objects. The site is usually defined by physical barriers or the total physical extent of its monuments or objects. As an example, a site may be a grave-field, while the cultural heritage monuments are made up of the burial mounds or barrows. For post-medieval cultural heritage, such as building protected by individual orders, the site might be the farmyard, while the cultural heritage monuments and objects are the buildings and perhaps parks or gardens in connection to these buildings. A site which contains automatically protected monuments will itself be considered protected. Any site must have at least one monument or object, but could potentially have an unlimited number of monuments and objects, within its delimitation.
