Adding another rationale to an existing one:

Connection: Dubbed as another WHS

Ohrid Region - The lake itself is often referred to as the European Galapagos due to the high number of species found nowhere else but here. (The neglected 'Galapagos of Europe')

Connection: Holocene

Tassili n'Ajjer - The transition to pastoralism following the African Humid period during the early Holocene is reflected in Tassili n'Ajjer's archaeological material record, rock art, and zooarchaeology. (Wikipedia)

We already have Paleozoic as its natural timeline (grès fluviatiles du Paléozoïque (env. 450 millions d'années) en cours d'ensablement par les dunes du grand erg oriental et granite érodé en 'boules' au premier plan (wiki)), we can only have one (and we choose the earliest)

Thanks for all the other connection suggestions by the way, I am working my way through them

No problem! I understand the choice.

No hurry. :-) I was just in a mood of reading up on WHS and looking for connections. I thought it was maybe a bit too much.

Connection: Destroyed during invasion

Timgad - After the Vandal invasion of 430, Timgad was destroyed at the end of the 5th century by montagnards of the Aurès. The Byzantine Reconquest revived some activities in the city (...). The Arab invasion brought about the final ruin of Thamugadi which ceased to be inhabited after the 8th century. (Unesco website)

Connection: Byzantine Empire and Civilization

Timgad - In 535 CE, the Byzantine general Solomon found the city empty when he came to occupy it during the Vandalic War. In the following century, the city was briefly repopulated as a primarily Christian city before being sacked in the 7th century after the Muslim conquest of the region. (Wikipedia - Timgad)

Connection: Spolia

Timgad - The Byzantine Reconquest revived some activities in the city, defended by a fortress built to the south, in 539, reusing blocks removed from Roman monuments. (Unesco website)

----------

Already existing, but adding a rationale:

Connection: Ancient Roman colonies

Timgad - Timgad was created ex nihilo as a military colony by the Emperor Trajan in AD 100. (Unesco website)

New connection proposition in the category Individual People:

James Bruce

James Bruce of Kinnaird (1730–1794) was a Scottish traveller and travel writer who spent more than a dozen years in North Africa and Ethiopia. (Wikipedia)

Ancient Thebes - Bruce visited Thebes, where he entered the tomb of Ramesses III. (Wikipedia - James Bruce)

Baalbek - Bruce travelled through Syria, visiting Palmyra and Baalbek. (Wikipedia - James Bruce)

El Escurial - Bruce studied oriental manuscripts at the Escorial in Spain. (Wikipedia - James Bruce)

Historic Jeddah - After an extensive navigation of the Red Sea in a local vessel, Bruce reached Jidda in May 1769. (Wikipedia - James Bruce)

Palmyra - Bruce travelled through Syria, visiting Palmyra and Baalbek. (Wikipedia - James Bruce)

Timgad – Travelling Northern Africa, British explorer James Bruce reached the city ruins on 12 December 1765, likely being the first European to visit the site in centuries and described the city as "a small town, but full of elegant buildings." In 1790, he published the book Travels to Discover the Source of the Nile, where he described what he had found in Timgad. (Wikipedia – Timgad)

@Els Do we community members need to help out with the new site's connections or are you doing that semi-automatically? e.g. we got a new Lighthouse. Bath is now an "inscribed twice" spot.

Yes please!

I do the obvious ones (Timeline, WHS process), but can use help for the more trivial or deeper ones.

Connection: Dubbed as another WHS

Cordouan Lighthouse - The "Versailles of the sea" (Le "Versailles de la mer") (Article in "Le Monde")

Connection: Neoclassical architecture

Cordouan Lighthouse - The upper part of the lighthouse was built in 1788-1789, in the neoclassical style of the late 18th century. (Nomination file, p. 8)

Quant à Joseph Teulère, il réalisa avec le langage du néo-classicisme de la fin du xviiie siècle un chef-d'œuvre absolu de stéréotomie à la française.

Connection: Scientific Developments

Cordouan Lighthouse - In 1823, Augustin Fresnel chose Cordouan to test out the optical system that would revolutionize the technology of lighthouse illumination around the world. The lighthouse was equipped with the prototype of the Fresnel lens. (Nomination file, p. 8-9)

Sa renommée était telle qu'en 1823, Augustin Fresnel choisit Cordouan pour expérimenter le système optique qui allait révolutionner la technique d'éclairage des phares dans le monde entier. (...) Cordouan accueillit ainsi le prototype des appareils à lentilles de Fresnel dont l'usage se généralise ensuite à tous les phares du monde.

The official name for the Rudreshwara (Ramappa) Temple is "Kakatiya Rudreshwara (Ramappa) Temple, Telangana" and not "The Glorious Kakatiya Rudreshwara (Ramappa) Temple at Palampet (Mulugu District), Telangana State, India".

They had to change it because of ICOMOS, didn't they. They complied, as a minor concession to get it inscribed.

I have been sitting on this for a decade hoping for a third part to come into play.

The Descent from the Cross (Rogier van der Weyden) and it's prominent copies:

The Descent from the Cross is a painting by the Flemish artist Rogier van der Weyden c.1435, now in the Museo del Prado, Madrid. It is regarded by many art historians as the most influential Netherlandish painting of Christ's crucifixion, and has produced several prominent copies.

The painting was originally commissioned for Greater Guild of Crossbowmen of Leuven and installed in the Chapel of Our Lady Without the Walls (destroyed in 1798).

The first known copy the Edeleheere triptych, is now housed in the nearby church of Sint Pieter in Leuven which is inscribed as a Belfry of Belgium and France.

The original was exchanged for a copy by Michael Coxcie when it was acquired by Mary of Austria and installed in Binche castle (not part of the Belfries WHS), where it was seen by Phillip II of Spain who installed it at El Escorial.

Since 1936 it has been in the collection of el Prado where it is on permanent loan from el Escorial, where today the copy by Michael Coxcie can be seen.
