HYDRIA



The website of Hydria www.hydriaproject.info

The overall objective of HYDRIA isto unfold and present a small part of the diverse Mediterranean Cultural Heritage using as vehicle representative cases of past water management works, concepts and techniques. The tool to promote the cases is a website site, www.hydriaproject.info, operating in English, Greek and Arabic language.

The HYDRIA website, aims to demonstrate the wisdom of our ancestors, through their wise and respectful water management techniques; to sensitise on the valuable water-related Mediterranean cultural heritage and present ways to protect it. Furthermore, the website asserts to make the proper links of the wise traditional techniques to the modern innovative technologies of water management, particularly in the light of the pressure generated on water resources by climate change and the water scarcity of the region.
The case studies from the Mediterranean are presented via a series of texts prepared by experts, photographic material, as well as animations, where appropriate, to explain the operation of complex water works. In the case studies links are made to cultural elements that depict how societies evolved around the water resources. Also, in each case study the current status of the remnants is presented and further references are proposed for the interested readers and potential visitors to the sites.
Evolution:
Phase I was a 14-month long project Nov 2008 - Dec 2009. In this phase 14 cases were developed for the website, including 4 animations.
Phase II was also 14-m long project Nov 2010 - Dec 2011. In this phase 6 more cases enriched the website.
Phase III is a 12-m project (Oct 2012 - Oct 2013). In this phase 20 cases are expected to be developed, plus 4 animations.
