I think Solivagant kept a list of "issues"?
Not really -just the sum total of "notes" I made as I went along. You will know which of these you resolved "satisfactorily" as you handled each of them.
There seem to be 2 sorts of issues
a. Specific TWHS which haven't been assignable at least reasonably - are there many? They would form a part of the input to the next issue ---
b. Categories which themselves have proven unsatisfactory or inadequate. The question is whether there is much value to be added by making changes. We have a footprint now of TWHS. The full statistics are awaited but it is showing some some aspects I would have expected - a general shape not too much different from the inscribed one.....still loads of Christian, Military and Burial sites to come.... a move towards CL Contin....vast numbers of forests...... Where will we get better insights from changing the category definitions? I would suspect that only around 5 -10% of assignments are problematic? We can now get a handle on the T List in smaller chunks than the full 1700+ even if each smaller chunk needs some "understanding" in relation to its contents.
We have a mental list of problem areas dont we. For a start
a. Insular v Marine/Coastal
b. Palace v Residence
c. Types of Forest
d. Active v Historic Volcanism
e. Post classical European Arch sites
f. Architectural v Urban planning (where sites are listed not for their "purpose" but for who designed them)
g. Geological phenomena not strictly covered by Volcanism, Karst and Erosion (and isn't Karst also "Erosion")
h. When to use Flora/Fauna instead of/as well as a landscape Categ
i. Our "structure by use" approach fails to identify any move towards modern architecture (it is worth asking ourselves I think what sort of aspects we would hope that "categorisation" would help us pull out and understand)
j. Mixing "Slavery" sites with "Trade & Transport". Aren't there enough of them to have separately - again we can find this by looking within the larger group... or have it pulled out for us by a new Category.
I suspect that many issues are irreconcilable within a framework of limited categories -we could solve 1 problem and just create another,,,, but I am not against addressing some of the issues to see if they take us anywhere..
