Inscribed in connection with an anniversary

WHS inscribed on, or in connection with, the celebration or recognition of a major "anniversary" of the site. Sometimes the process takes place slightly out of sync with the actual anniversary because of the uncertainty of the timescale to gain inscription. Not all are successful. - UK had hoped to gain inscription of "Darwin at Down" to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth.
