Belize Barrier Reef: Reduced from broader TWHS: Hol Chan Marine Reserve

LOL! I should have seen that one. The TWHS wasn't really broader, but different (some locations came, some went). But I will add it.

Shouldn't this better be combined with the already existing connection "Extensions on Tentative List"? Because now there are two for the Danube Limes.

Connection: On T List for a different nomination

If I'm not mistaken, The La Merced Church in Antigua which is in the inscribed area is also on the tentative list of Guatemala in the "Route of the Peace and National Identity".

We have the La Merced (part of the TWHS) located in Antigua indeed, but there is another one of the same name in Guatemala City. I can't find anymore how we decided the location for it, maybe one of the other forum members knows or remembers? The Antigua one is among the "best churches in Guatemala" according to Frommers guidebook, so for now I'd say we were right - and the connection you propose is valid as well. I will add it.

Connection: Augustinian Order

Danube Limes - (ID No 29) Klosterneuburg – Kastell und Vicus - "A large part of the fort is hidden underneath the abbey of the Augustinian canons, which was founded in the 12th century, and is thus not visible. A few areas have been examined archeologically (...) and are today on display. The buildings of the fort below the abbey courtyards and the surrounding open areas have never been examined, while the historic buildings of the abbey also integrate substantial ancient structure." (Nomination file, p. 404)

Connection: Copper production

Dholavira – "(...) the location of Dholavira in the island of Khadir was strategic to harness different mineral and raw material sources (copper, (...) among others)" (Official description) "The evidence of copper metallurgy from the earliest stages at Dholavira clearly indicate[s] the smelting of copper ore. The nearest copper sources from Dholavira is the Ambaji-Deri copper mines located on the Gujarat - Rajasthan border. A variety of copper artefacts clearly demonstrate[s] the wide preference of finished products, both for the elite and lay persons." (Nomination text, p. 188)

Connection: Bronze Age

Dholavira – "Dholavira is an exceptional example of a proto-historic Bronze Age urban settlement pertaining to the Harappan Civilization". (Official description)

Connection: Recorded cultural discoveries

Dholavira – "The site was discovered by Dr. Jagat Pati Joshi, former Director General of ASI, in 1968, during his exploration in the Kachchh district." (Nomination text, p. 37)

Connection: Brick architecture

Dholavira – The defensive walls of Dholavira built in Stages II and III were made of brick masonry. (Nomination text, p. 51, 70)

Connection: Destroyed or damaged by Earthquake

Dholavira – Dholavira was several times devastated by an earthquake, for instance in Stages IIIA and V of its existence. The earthquake at the end of Stage V, caused the site "to be abandoned for a short period of time." An earthquake in 2001 caused minor damage to the archaeological site. (AB Ev; Nomination text, p. 53, 71, 399)

Connection: Oldest Buildings

Dholavira – The Castle of Dholavira, part of the Citadel, has proof of habitation that dates back to Stage I of the city, "around the beginning of third millennium BCE". (Nomination text, p. 58) In "Stage III (c. 2800-2500 BCE) (...), [t]he walled settlement was further reinforced and transformed into the Castle. The Bailey was added to it from the west." (AB Ev)

Connection: Rock Cut Architecture

Dholavira – Of a series of five buried water reservoirs, the "third one which is centrally located is primarily a rock-cut architecture of excellence, exquisite beauty and superb skill." (Nomination text, p. 121)

Connection: Pillars

Dholavira – The "in situ preserved stone elements, consisting of a series of arrangement of square, bi-concave and bi-convex pillar elements, fastened to each other through a mortice and tenon arrangement, have helped in the understanding of architectural edifices and their basic elements." "The production of limestone pillar elements is unmatched among the other contemporary settlements." "The pillar elements were also exported to other Harappan cities like Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, from where evidences clearly indicate the interregional trade and the demand for such items of trade, most probably for elite use." (Nomination text, p. 167, 170-171, 353)

Connection: Tumuli

Dholavira – "Six hemispherical tumuli are the most conspicuous features of curiosity and promise in the zone of [the] western necropolis." They surround a "depression representing a buried water body and were believed to be of special significance in terms of their shape, size and location. Two of them (...) have been subjected to archaeological investigation which confirmed their being funerary monuments of exceeding importance and unique character". (Nomination text, p. 223)

Connection: Locations for playing sport

Dholavira – "The rectangular Ceremonial Ground is a relatively flat area originally annexed to the Castle as a residential area, but later cleared for carving out the open space." (AB Ev) It comprises "two multi-purpose grounds as integral elements of urban planning" that "strongly appear to have been used as stadiums as well as seasonal trading areas in addition to miscellaneous social and other activities". "The presence of a large ceremonial ground that could have been used for multipurpose activities like holding recreation activities, markets, local gatherings, sport activities, is another extraordinary example at Dholavira." (Nomination text, p. 93, 356)

Question: do we consider the Yellow Sea to be a part of the East China Sea, or could we split it off into its own connection?

The Yellow Sea connection could be created with three sites:
- Great Wall - Shanhaiguan
- Migratory Bird Sanctuaries
- Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat - "Situated in the eastern Yellow Sea on the southwestern and southern coast of the Republic of Korea" (Official description)

If we consider the Yellow Sea to be a part of the East China Sea, than the Getbol site can be added to that connection.
