The Belgian town of Ename in Flanders has its origins in the tenth century as a fortified settlement on the borders of the Holy Roman Empire. The strategic significance of the town rapidly decreased after its capture by the Counts of Flanders and an abbey was constructed; this was destroyed in the sixteenth century (iconoclastic fury); the final destruction of the abbey took place at the end of the eighteenth century in the French Revolution... This paper will consider how the town of Ename has exploited its archaeological and historical resources, and what effect this has had on the town. Consideration will be given to the role of technology at the cultural heritage sites in Ename.
