Dear Readers, The issue o f “Ochrona Zabytków " that we are currently putting; into your hands constitutes the first step in the direction of major changes in our magazine, which is addressed to the Polish conservation professionals. Phis issue is a so-called transitory stage. A comprehensive article written by Zbigniew Kobyliński regarding scientific, conservation and ethical bases o f the philosophy o f protecting archaeological heritage, richly illustrated by examples from all over the world and supported by numerous legal arguments portrays the modern approach to archaeology; based on preventive conservation which relies on preservation o f authentic historical structure. Phis interpretation complies with the principles determined in the mission o f the National Heritage Hoard o f Poland which stipulates that the N1 IP is a national institution o f culture that creates bases for sustainable protection oj heritage - it collects and popularises knowledge about monuments, determines standards o f their protection and conservation a n d shapes social awareness for the purpose of preserving Poland 's cultural heritage f or future generations . The text referred to above and the very competent article on combating crime against archaeological monuments also constitute signals that archaeology is going to be a constant issue o f interest in our magazine. Issues rela ted to protection o f archaeological monuments, most numerous, most endangered and least recognized, require special support. The scope o f issues related to the heritage o f the past, and therefore subjects that we are trying to bring closer to you, is, obviously, very extensive. Starting from presentation o f painting masterpieces, such as the works o f Rembrandt from the collection of the Royal Castle in Warsaw - whose complex conservation process was discussed in chapter "Realisations " - to showing monuments that testify to perception o f art in rural areas, for example paintings in the late-Baroque church in Krosno (Warmia region). Two highly recommended texts that we would like to encourage you to read were written or co-written by the employees of our institution. Phis is another important change - we will use our best effort to make "Ochrona Zabytków ' a place where concepts and achievements resulting from conservation programmes currently implemented by our institution are presented. At the same time, we have the pleasure o f informing you that as o f January I, 2011 our institution will be transformed into the National Heritage Institute with an increased scope o f competences, pursuant to a decision o f the Minister o f Culture and National / leritage. The range o f our activities will be increased even more; "Ochrona Zabytków will also continue to develop and - hopefully - the circle o f its readers will keep growing. I invite you to read our periodical! Paulina Florjanowicz Director a. i. of the National Heritage Hoard of Poland
