It's official - England's Lake District has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Noted for its longstanding inspiration to artists and writers, the location has been trying to receive status since 1986. Have you visited recently? Remember to tag your pictures with #ARCambridge
Awesome capture by one of our Archaeology MPhils, currently conducting fieldwork in Russia. 
Have any shots from archaeological/heritage sites whilst researching? Use #ARCambridge for a feature.
Definitely an archaeo perk - getting up close and personal with #Stonehenge! Want to get up close and personal with us? Check out our website to order some of our previous issues. They're monumental.

Norwich, less than an hour and a half drive from Cambridge, has recently been listed as a UNESCO City of Literature, England's first. The amount of cities who've received this title are few - only Reykjavik, Krakow, Iowa City, Edinburgh, Melbourne and Dublin to date.
If you stop by the city of literary heritage, be sure to snap a few pics, tell us about the vibrant literary scene and tag #ARCambridge with your finds 📖

Stonehenge, potentially the most quintessential archaeological monument, was produced by a culture that left no written documents. The arch department at @cambridgeuniversity visited the site a couple weeks ago, and suffice it to say, they still have some questions. Was it aliens? Time travelers? Frankly, we're not sure either. Tag your favourite archaeology related pics with #ARCambridge for a chance to be featured.

Springtime has come to Cambridge - stop by the McDonald Institute to pick up a copy of the Review (just don't get caught reading on the lawn)
Tonight is the night - we're kicking off our 2017 conference on climate change! Follow us on Twitter at arch_review_cam for live updates. Things are heating up. 📸: @qiminfei
Hvar Island, located off the coast of Split, Croatia, is experiencing the negative effects of climate change. "This winter was the coldest and most brutal of them all," said Vladiv. Temperatures hit below 0 and, according to Vladiv, fishermen's catch was less than ideal. "It's only getting worse!" he lamented. This picture was taken from the Fortica Fortress, inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2015. Photo taken by ARC officer @lowiththebow on her recent trip to the Balkans. For more information on climate change, check out @archaeologicalreview's conference on climate change taking place in April. Tag your photos with #ARClimate to be featured.
The Bay of Kotor, located in Montenegro, was inscribed to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1979. Around the same time a large number of Kotor's monuments were severely damaged by a major earthquake, though the town has since been largely restored. Today it's a big tourist destination, and we're thinking it's one of the best sunsets we've seen in a while.
