Connection: Archaeological 'Type Sites'

Chinchorro Culture - The Chinchorro type site is located in Arica, Chile; it was discovered by German archaeologist Max Uhle in the early 20th century. (Chinchorro culture - Wikipedia)

Connection: Recorded cultural discoveries

Chinchorro Culture - The Chinchorro type site is located in Arica, Chile; it was discovered by German archaeologist Max Uhle in the early 20th century. He excavated nearly a hundred individuals during the twenties. (Chinchorro culture - Wikipedia)

Connection: Lagoons

Chinchorro Culture - In the area surrounding the mouth of the Camarones River, current surface run-off conditions generate a small lagoon adjacent to the beach area, where the wetlands are located. (Chinchorro Culture Nomation Text, p. 130)

Connection: Geoglyphs

Chinchorro Culture - Two geoglyphs from the Late Period have been found at the mouth of the Camarones River. The first is located inside the valley, six kilometers from the mouth of the river and is made up of a panel of camelid figures. The second is a circular figure located at the top of the southern slope of the river mouth, created using a subtractive technique and with red pigment on its borders. Both geoglyphs are related to trails that connect the river mouth to the middle of the Camarones Valley. (Chinchorro Culture Nomation Text, p. 143)

Connection: Ongoing Archaeological digs

Chinchorro Culture - Studies of Chinchorro archaeological sites at the mouth of the Camarones River have been carried out as a result of research initiatives initiated at the end of the fifties and continue to this day, motivated by different research aims that intend to reveal the presence of the territory's intense occupation. (Chinchorro Culture Nomation Text, p. 157)

Connection: Archaeological potential

Chinchorro Culture - At present, both the settlement and the artifactual evidence in situ below the surface in the Desembocadura de Camarones area are intact and a potential source of scientific information for both the present and the future. At domestic sites such as Conchal Sur, Camarones 14, Camarones 17, Camarones 1, Camarones 2 and Camarones 8, the possibility of future studies into the relationship between different populations and between them and their surroundings is assured.

Connection: Mosaic art

Aachen Cathedral - The dome of the octagon is decorated with mosaics. (De Dom van Aken – Bisschoppelijke kerk)

Connection: Christian Pilgrimage Sites

Aachen Cathedral - The Aachen Cathedral has traditionally attracted many pilgrims, partly because of the relics transferred to the cathedral. Since 1349, a pilgrimage (Aachenerfahrt) has been held every seven years, during which the relics stored in the Marian shrine are shown to the faithful. (De Dom van Aken – Bisschoppelijke kerk)

Connection: Legends and Folk Myths

Aachen Cathedral - According to a legend about the origin of the Cathedral, at a certain point during the construction, the money ran out. The devil announced that he wanted to help, but of course not for free. He demanded the soul of the first person to enter the church upon completion. The devil assumed this would be a bishop. So the deal seemed lucrative to him, but the people of Aachen were smart. Not wanting to lose the bishop's soul, they sent a wolf in first after the cathedral was completed. The devil was furious at this deception and stormed out of the church. He slammed the Cathedral's door so hard that he lost his thumb. The main portal of the cathedral recalls this story. In a statue of a bronze lion on the right door (the Wolf's Door) there is a hole that symbolizes the devil's thumb. (De Dom van Aken – Bisschoppelijke kerk)

You mean the big stadium? I looked at it before, it is just outside of the core zone

Yes, this is the one. It is mentioned in the nomination file and has its own portico. Its portico (facade facing Strada Pietro de Coubertin) is included in Portico della Certosa.

I visited it today and am now convinced to add it. Although the sports location (the modern football pitch) is outside of the core zone, the monumental entrance (Marathon Tower) was specially built for a sports stadium in the (fascist) 1920s. Its design also integrates nicely with the Portico that leads to the Certosa and is an interesting waypoint along the route.

Chinchorro Culture – The Chinchorro were a society of marine hunter-gatherers who lived between 7400 BP and 2840 BP approximately. (Nomination Text, p. 17)

Chongoni Rock Art – The rock art reflects the comparatively scarce tradition of farmer rock art, as well as paintings by BaTwa hunter-gatherers who inhabited the area from the late Stone Age. (Unesco website)

Cueva de las Manos – The people responsible for the paintings may have been the ancestors of the historic hunter-gatherer communities of Patagonia found by European settlers in the 19th century. (Unesco website)

Poverty Point - The complex was created and used for residential and ceremonial purposes by a society of hunter fisher-gatherers between 3700 and 3100 BP. (Unesco website)

Rock Art of Alta - More rock art made by hunter-gatherers is found in Alta than anywhere else in northern Europe. (Unesco website)

Rock Paintings of the Sierra de San Francisco - The landscape of the area is another significant attribute, understood as the extensive physical space in which, through rock art, the thoughts of their early dwellers, hunter-gatherers people who living here from the terminal Pleistocene (10,000 BP) until the arrival of Jesuit missionaries in the late seventeenth century, are expressed. (Unesco website)

Serra da Capivara – According to studies, the area encompassing the Serra da Capivara National Park was occupied by hunters and gatherers, followed by ceramic-farming societies. (Unesco website)

Tassili n'Ajjer – The art of the Large Wild Fauna Period of the Round Head Period is attributed to hunter-gather peoples. (Rock Art of the Tassili n Ajjer)

Twyfelfontein - The site forms a coherent, extensive and high-quality record of ritual practices relating to hunter-gatherer communities in this part of southern Africa over at least 2,000 years, and eloquently illustrates the links between the ritual and economic practices of hunter-gatherers.

Els, I think you put the explanation for the Legends connection in the Pilgrimage connection.

Wouldn't any cultural site prior to the Neolithic Revolution fit in? This would include the majority of the prehistoric sites. I would suggest limiting the connection to cultural sites following the invention of agriculture. This would make the connection more interesting. Otherwise, there would be plenty of sites to be added.
