This part of the website deals specifically with East Fort and the efforts that the Association has made to encourage our Heritage Authorities and Government Departments to meet their obligation to adhere to the National Heritage Resources Act of 1999.
The “East Fort Project” start page, includes a table of hyper-links that will take you through the various related topics of the section which you can address in any order but would suggest that you initially start on the top row of the and work Right to Left.
Embedded in the text are “hyperlinks” which refer to other Internet sites or PDF document downloads which you can save on your computer.
The site also contains “Light boxes” ie. as you move your cursor over many of the pictures, a pointing hand will appear, if you then left-click on the picture it will give you an enlarged picture and more information about the topic.
‘Left-click’ on the flag below and you’ll see how the light boxes work!
An open letter that was written to review our heritage situation in 2016 during heritage month, describes the situation at the time. The sad fact is that the parlous situation of our heritage has further deteriorated and its message still holds good. If you click on the link above you can download the Review which will be a good starting point for your journey through this part of the website.
We hope that you find the journey both enlightening as well as thought provoking.
