This is the first official enhanced e-book created for a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Published in conjunction with Norway Communicated and Vestfold-Telemark County.    Featuring an exclusive Foreword by Dr. Mechtild Rössler (Director of the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the Heritage Division), she described the book as 'beautifully crafted and meticulously researched'.   Description;   The world was coming to a crossroads, and many were concerned. As the world population began to boom during the course of the 1800s, the scientific question began to circulate – how long would the world population survive on current food supply production?    To answer that challenge, it was just over a century ago in Norway that a major transformation took place. During the course of just a short decade, power plants, factories, transport systems and company towns were created. The urgent and immediate goal - producing enough mineral fertiliser to increase world food production.    This is the story of the UNESCO Rjukan-Notodden Industrial Heritage Site.    250 pages of interactivity, videos, 1000+ photos, historical documentation, human-interest essays, facts, figures, innovative technology, architecture, trains, ships, design, and more - all colourfully presented in this state-of-the-art eBook. Available in English and Norwegian, Android […]
