NEW YORK — EXPLORING CULTURAL LANDSCAPES An ancient pueblo inhabited for centuries by indigenous people. A city park inspired by the Midwestern prairie. A Hudson River estate designed as a three-dimensional work of art.
What do these places — the Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico, Columbus Park in Chicago and Olana in New York — have in common? They're all cultural landscapes — places that are important because of their history or association with individuals, communities or events. And they're included — along with 1,700 other sites — in an online database called What's Out There, created by the Cultural Landscape Foundation in Washington D.C.
Of course! Coffee is part of the cultural landscape!
Over the course of human history, thousands of languages have developed from what was once a much smaller number. How did we end up with so many? And how do we keep track of them all? Alex Gendler explains how linguists group languages into language families, demonstrating how these linguistic trees give us crucial insights into the past.
