Ukraine
Archaeological Site 'Stone Tomb' - Arch Site Prehistoric
Astronomical Observatories of Ukraine – Secular Education (Could be civic & Public. Suggest add "Scientific" to Education?)
Bagçesaray Palace of the Crimean Khans – Secular Palace

Kyiv: Saint Sophia Cathedral etc (Extn) - Relig Christian
Mykolayiv Astronomical Observatory - Duplic. Has to be the same as the earlier observatories?
National Steppe Biosphere Reserve "Askaniya Nowa" – See Zebra in Ukraine! Impossible to categorise! Zoo for fauna, forest park for Flora and open steppe for Diverse Ecosystem. Perhaps the latter is the most valuable?

The historical surroundings of Crimean Khans' capital in Bakhchysarai – CL Continuing (?)
Trading Posts and Fortifications on Genoese Trade Routes - Transport & Trade
Tyras - Bilhorod (Akkerman), on the way from the Black Sea to the Baltic Sea – Another difficult one. Originally Greek but all the classical remains are Roman. The mediaeval remains are primarily the Fortress. So .... Arch site Ancient Rome / Military & Fortif

United Arab Emirates

I've added the same overview as for the WHS categories: https://www.worldheritagesite.org/list/twhscategories
Will have a look if I can put them in a list format as well.

Have added the TWHS from this topic up to Mexico. Will now first continue to add the other countries already posted here.

Solivagant:
Insular area and bay of Colonia del Sacramento (extn) –Urban Landscape Latin American

Wouldn't this one be Urban landscape Colonial? (like Colonia del Sacramento WHS)

Astraftis:
Bradyseism in the Flegrea Area - Volcanic and thermal; Ancient Rome - Serapeum seems to be considered important

This is a natural site only. So I propose to only add the first one. The Roman remains cannot be overlooked apparently (we should change the photo on the TWHS page), but : "archaeologic heritage that, in this case, represents a "measuring instrument" of the natural phenomenon"

Astraftis:
Cascata delle Marmore and Valnerina: Monastic sites and ancient hydrogeological reclamation works - Civic and public works; Rivers and lakes - Two and maybe three themes in one; not sure if cultural landscape

Here I have gone for the Civic and public works (it's a cultural nomination)

Astraftis:
ecco l'Italia!

It looks like Italy has changed most names of the TWHS from the Italian name to an English one. We still have the Italian ones, need to fix that.

Astraftis:
Do we need a category for wetlands?

Good question, as they seem quite common. Until now, we have them mostly under Rivers and lakes. We could change that name to "Rivers, wetlands and lakes". I don't know whether there are "wetland only" WHS.

Astraftis:
Sulcis Iglesiente - Mines - In a not really descript natural environment, so it counts as "Natural". It is, Germanly speaking, a kind of Tagebaufolgelandschaft (I love the word)

This is an odd one. I can't see that it would stay as a Natural nomination only. I've added Mining and Eroded, but it may become a cultural landscape if ever nominated.

Astraftis:
The Marble Basin of Carrara - Mines - Actually kind of impressive

I've added Mountains as well, it's a mixed proposal

Astraftis:
The Murge of Altamura - Karst landscapes and caves; Non-hominid fossils - Fossils of every kind! "murge" is plural of "murgia" (a dialectal word for rocky places of some kind)

The UNESCO website has this as a cultural nomination, we have it as mixed. The text feels like natural, with the attributed categories that you have given plus Human evolution (both human and non-human fossils have been found).

Pfff - The Italian TWHS are very tricky, the texts seem to ramble on, adding a Roman ruin here and there

Yes... I guess "Colonial" stops at independence? !!

A good name/domain change... Have done several "wetlands" today and river/lake by themselves wasn't fully satisfactory

Astraftis:
Via Francigena in Italy - Continuing; Medieval Europe - Again, this is rather intangible

I'd go for Christian, that's what we have for the Compostela routes as well. Francigena in the proposed OUV is described solely as a pilgrimage route.

A few generic changes proposed:

Solivagant:
Suggest add "Scientific" to Education?)

Done. Made it "Science and Education".

elsslots:
change that name to "Rivers, wetlands and lakes".

Done.

Astraftis:
The difference between Residence and Palace is blurry

It is. Though not all residences are the same, I could see some move to a combined Palace/Residence category (they're in fact upper class housing). But we have others in the Residence category which do not fit that easily, they are more normal houses (Rietveld, FLW, Decorated farmhouses). We could make a more disruptive move and call it all Housing?
