text (cultural heritage)

‘Cultural Heritage texts‘ are historical works that have become an object of study. The subject matter maybe of any type including mathematics or science, and the work itself may be in any form, even correspondence or a journal. In spite of this variation in content and form, the study of the text’s own composition: for example, evidence of its existence, how it is written, what it is, how it is structured, etc., is normally reckoned as part of the humanities domain.
