Canada's nomination (Grand Pre) is recommended for inscription. I am suprised by this, as it looks like there is almost nothing left of historical remains. Reading about the site, history, and browsing pictures seem to show a very underwhelming site. I could be wrong
From the description in the AB evaluation, it seems that Grand Pre is recommended for inscription for 2 reasons: a) as an example of polder landscape in North America; b) as "iconic" memorial place for the Acadians. Beemster and Schokland are cited as similar Old World examples - no wonder it may seem underwhelming on the pictures...
With regard to Wearmouth-Jarrow, the UK seems to have put to much faith on the association with Bede. The following comment seems very relevant in this context:
"ICOMOS in this context would like to recall that the World Heritage Convention is a property or site-based convention without a mandate for the commemoration of the world's most outstanding individuals."
This seems to imperil further nominations based on the association with famous persons, such as the Darwin Lab Landscape or the Swedish Linnaeus-associated site (Rise of Systematic Biology)
