This Handbook and its Toolkit explain ‘cultural heritage first aid’: the immediate and interdependent actions taken to stabilise and reduce risks to endangered tangible and intangible cultural heritage, with the aim of promoting its recovery. Through a field-tested, three-step framework, it establishes when and how to protect endangered cultural heritage, and indicates all those who could assist in such operations. The steps and workflows provided can be adapted to different types of emergencies and their specific contexts.
