Blog: Undetectable values, measurable facades

Published: 5 October 2015

Jennie Sjöholm, PhD student at theDepartment of Civil, Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering, has been a guest blogger on the Norrbottens Museum's web of cultural environments and measurements of Gammelstad Church Town.

Tell us a little about this blog?

Norrbotten Museum's cultural environment department blogs regularly about current projects they are working on, or raise different questions about the county's cultural history and heritage. Now and then they invite guest writers.

What are you working on right now?

I am currently writing my dissertation, which deals with cultural processes in the built environment; how buildings are valued and revalued as cultural heritage. Case study is the urban transformation in Kiruna.

UNESCO added Gammelstad church town to their world heritage list in 1996 - motivated by its outstanding universal value and its relevance to all mankind.

The Gammelstad site is the world's most extensive and best preserved example of a church town, with more than 400 church cottages gathered around a medieval stone church.
