ICOFORT, ICOMOS China and Shenyang Jianzhu University will hold ICOFORT Symposium on the “the Conservation of Historic War & Fortification Monuments and Sites” in Shenyang from September 27 to 28, 2019. Due to China's long history, vast territory and diverse cultures, unique historic sites and buildings can be found in different regions,especially a large number of ancient city defense, wars and other historic sites which reflect diverse cultures. These sites, therefore, have become important parts of the world cultural heritage and research targets in the field of architectural history and cultural heritage in East Asia and China. In the process of rapid development of urban and rural areas, a variety of war sites and cultural heritage have been destroyed to varying degrees. Therefore, studies from the perspectives of architectural history and conservation have become extremely necessary. The symposium, with the theme of “Conservation of Historic War & Fortification Monuments and Sites” will focus on such topics as the ancient city defense system, the historical landscape of ancient walled cities (villages, forts), the regional architectural technology and cultural heritage, the diversity of cultural heritage, as well as historical protection and cultural construction in urban and rural areas
