I have some corrections/proposals with regard to the sites where I have recently been. Beech forests
I have seen the meticuolous work that has been done by Pavel and my intention is not to further delve into the forestal depths, but I just wanted to point out that the Jasmund point
on our map is slightly off: it may be at the center of the Jasmund natural park, but it is not
at the center of the UNESCO area! Here
you can clearly see the difference.
1) using the coordinates of the Königsstuhl (e.g. 54.57311N, 13.66192E) as symbolic place;
2) using a more indefinite centrale point like e.g. 54.5556N, 13.666E.Moler landscapes of the Liim Fiord
(Small note: Liim fiord
is an obsolete/archaic orthography for Limfjord
, only they know why they chose that.)
There is some confusion in our data, and we might add some significant points. Provided that the current file does not explicitly list exact locations, it seems that the intended area are in general all moler
deposits in and around the islands Mors and Fur. Some locals working in museum and tourist offices pointed me to two specific locations, though: Knudeklinterne on Fur and Hanklit on Mors. These places are prominent among the involved cliffs, but it is very doubtful that a future core zone will cover only them. Given this, comments and corrections:
- Ertebølle hoved
: coordinates are markedly wrong! The site is not offshore between mainland and Fur, but on the coast near the eponymous village
. Proposed coordinates: 56.80617N, 9.16939E.
: this also appears slightly offshore, but it should be taken onto the nearby coast.
: now, this is somewhat confusing. This place is actually cited in the current documentation, but is actually a farm and, from what I have been able to read and see, it has no connection to moler
or extracting activities whatsoever. It seems to be cited only regarding conservation issues. But my bet is that Skarre(gaard) is actually intended for the whole area around it, so...
- Fossil- og molermuseet
: ...this should be added instead as the focal point of the area and as it is near a big quarry where visitors can merrily hammer themselves i nsearch for fossiles! Proposed coordinates: 56.94346N, 8.87335E.
- Ejerslev klint
: this can "complete" the picture on Mors (it is on the local maps, but appears to be much less popular). The site is partly created by a wuarry. Proposed: 56.9209N, 8.9188E.
: the two most relevant natural moler
sites on Fur. Proposed coordinates respectively:
56.83751N, 8.96028E and 56.8438N, 9.0053E.
; the first form is in the local dialectal variant): I don't think it's relevant, if not to represent the extraction activity. It's a rest of mining activity and it's rapidly collapsing: I was told it won't be there anymore given 2/3 years, and I could indeed see a big difference with respect to older pictures. A more central point for Northern Fur might be 56.834091N, 9.008555E.
: Only cited along Ertebølle in the documentatio, without further details. They seem to be of lesser importance, but probably deserve to be on the map. With the help of this site
(which has other coordinates, too), I located Silstrup at 56.925013N, 8.660719E, while Junget seems to be at 56.79004N ,9.09876E, judging from this
(in particular the point 3 molerskrænt
, the "moler
slide"), actually near Eskov and Junget øre. Danevirke
The offshore work
point is... off. It should be at Reesholm, so like 54.5143N, 9.6372E.
Could it be worth setting a point for Waldemar's wall
,at ca. 54.48175N, 9.49578E? It's not one of the official locations, maybe, but it's significant.
