Heritage – our past, and where we come from – means different things to different people. Some people relate to the idea of heritage in a personal way, while others see it as having a broader historical and political significance.
In this section, we will explore a number of issues relating to heritage, namely:

  • What is heritage?
  • What are heritage resources?
  • What are South Africa's World Heritage Sites?
  • Investigating heritage resources from the past
  • What are the issues involved in displaying people in museums?
  • Note: Some grade 10 sections are under construction and still link to old content. Also note, there may be minor changes to the curriculum from year to year, teachers always check with your Curriculum Advisor and students, check with your teacher.
