The list is maintained by the international World Heritage Programme administered by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, composed of 21 UNESCO member states which are elected by the General Assembly. The programme catalogues, names, and conserves sites of outstanding cultural or natural importance to the common heritage of humanity. Under certain conditions, listed sites can obtain funds from the World Heritage Fund. The programme was founded with the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage, which was adopted by the General Conference of UNESCO on 16 November 1972. Since then, 191 states parties have ratified the Convention, making it one of the most adhered to international instruments. Only Liechtenstein, Nauru, Somalia, South Sudan, Timor-Leste and Tuvalu are not Party to the Convention. As of 2014, 1007 sites are listed: 779 cultural, 197 natural, and 31 mixed properties, in 161 states parties. By sites ranked by country, Italy is home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites with 57 sites, followed by China (47), Spain (44), France (39), Germany (39), Mexico (32) and India (32). UNESCO references each World Heritage Site with an identification number; however, new inscriptions often include previous sites now listed as part of larger descriptions. As a result, the identification numbers exceed 1,200 even though there are fewer on the list. In 1954, the government of Egypt decided to build the Aswan Dam (Aswan High Dam), an event that would deluge a valley containing treasures of ancient Egypt such as the Abu Simbel temples. UNESCO then launched a worldwide safeguarding campaign. The Abu Simbel and Philae temples were taken apart, moved to a higher location, and put back together piece by piece. Meanwhile, the Temple of Dendur was moved to Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Temple of Debod was moved to Parque del Oeste in Madrid. The cost of the project was US$80 million, about $40 million of which was collected from 50 countries. The project was regarded as a success, and led to other safeguarding campaigns, saving Venice and its lagoon in Italy, the ruins of Mohenjo-daro in Pakistan, and the Borobodur Temple Compounds in Indonesia. UNESCO then initiated, with the International Council on Monuments and Sites, a draft convention to protect the common cultural heritage of humanity. The United States initiated the idea of cultural conservation with nature conservation. A White House conference in 1965 called for a 'World Heritage Trust' to preserve "the world's superb natural and scenic areas and historic sites for the present and the future of the entire world citizenry." The International Union for Conservation of Nature developed similar proposals in 1968, and they were presented in 1972 to the United Nations conference on Human Environment in Stockholm. Under the World Heritage Committee signatory countries are required to produce and submit periodic data reporting providing the World Heritage Committee with an overview of each participating nation's implementation of the World Heritage Convention and a "snapshot" of current conditions at World Heritage properties. A single text was agreed on by all parties, and the Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage was adopted by the General Conference of UNESCO on 16 November 1972.

Was earth visited in the past by Ancient Aliens flying UFOs around and telling there where to build their cities....perhaps hoping that one day in the future we would put together the clues? An uncanny and what seems to be a planned alignment of a multitude of ancient archeological sites around Earth strongly points towards humans of the past being guided, globally, and over many millennia by some sort of higher intelligence. Personally, my mind was absolutely blown once I manually connected all the sites on Google Earth myself, which is exactly what I’m about to do for you. At the end of the video, I expect your mind to be blown just as mine was. I also encourage you to try this out for yourself in Google Earth and replicate my results. Before we begin, please forgive me for butchering some of these names. Nearly all of these sites are considered what is known as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, sites that are of extreme special cultural or physical significance. 1) Easter Island: We’re going to start off with Easter Island, which is home to the mysterious Moai statues which were created around 800 years ago for reasons that still remain unknown. A total of 887 monolithic stone Moai statues have been counted. 2) Nazca Lines: The Nazca Lines are mysterious giant glyphs carved into the ground in the Nazca Desert of Peru. They were thought to be built around 1600 years ago - no one knows why they are there as they can only be seen from the sky...why would anyone do that when flight hadn't been invented yet? 3) Machu Picchu: Machu Piccu was built around 600 years ago at the height of the Incan Empire and allegedly as a means to honor a "sacred landscape." If you havn't heard of it before, it's a city literally built on top of a mountain by hand….with rocks sometimes weighing as much as 40 tons. 4) Tassili n'Ajjer Tassili n'Ajjer is a range of mountains in Algeria in the Sahara Desert. It contains some 15,000 ancient cave drawings some of which are up to 10,000 years old. Some of the carvings are a bit strange as well. 5) Persepolis Persepolis is the ancient capital of Persia. It was built around 2500 years ago. 6) Khajuraho Group of Monuments The Khajuraho Group of Monuments are 85 special temples to honor Hindu gods built around 1000 years ago. They were allegedly built in this area as it is an area where quote “the gods love to play” according to local legend. The temples are dedicated to various Hindu gods such as Shiva, Vishnu, Ganesha, and Jain Tithanks. 7) The Oasis at Siwa The Oasis at Siwa is estimated to be around 4,600 years old..and many believe it could be much older. It is famous for being the home of the Oracle of Amun. Amun was an Egyptian Diety. Alexander the Great believed that his divinity was a result of his visit to this oracle. 8) The Pyramids of Giza I'm sure you've heard of the Pyramids of Giza before. They were estimated to have been constructed around 4,600 years ago. 9) Mohenjo Daro Mohenjo Daro was built in around 4600 years ago. It is part of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization. The name literally translates to the Mound of the Dead. It is thought to be one of the world's earliest major urban settlements. 10) Angkor Wat Angkor Wat was built around 1000 years ago and was dedicated to the god Vishnu. According to a 13th Century Chinese traveler, it was allegedly believed that the temple was contructed in only one night by an architect of divine power. Now let’s complete our journey by connecting the final destination to our original one, Easter Island. Once we zoom out….do you see a pattern? ALL of these sites line up on the same line around the Earth. The line is, except for a few very minor deviations that may be due to the Earth slightly shifting over the many millenia these sites were constructed as well as perhaps partial user error on my part mapping these out…..perfect. It almost looks like an equator. The probability of this occuring by chance is basically zero. Why do all these ancient and quite important sites line up on the same line on Earth? Was someone guiding the construction of all these ancient sites? Why are so many if not all of the sites related to something divine….and what was that divinity? In order to orchestrate such a thing, these civilizations would have somehow had to have made contact with each other across the space of the entire planet as well as over the course of several millenia in addition to being able to basically see the Earth from space in order to create such an uncanny alignment. These arn't the only sites that line up either, there's quite a few more sites that line up as well as you can see here. I only cut some out for the sake of brevity. Once again I encourage you to try this out for yourself. Also, if you know of any mysteries you’d like me to cover in upcoming videos, leave a comment below or send me a message on Youtube.

The South Wales region in the UK offers an ever-changing scene for tourists, and small towns such as Cardigan and Newquay bustle with visitors during the summer months. By contrast, on the seacoast of Pembrokeshire, Newport especially attracts keen hill walkers, with hiking trails over scenic Carn Ingli, over the Preseli Hills, and along the cliff-top Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The Cardigan/Newport area is also rich in history, ranging from ancient Neolithic settlements and monuments, to ruined Norman-era castles. Elsewhere, remnants of former industrial activity can be found in areas that are gradually being transformed back to their natural state. At the seaside harbor community of Porthgain, now-derelict large brick hoppers date from the early 1900’s, when this port exported slate, bricks and dolerite. Further inland, the World Heritage Site in the Blaenafon area commemorates the past iron, steel and coal industries of the region. These days, the decommissioned Big Pit (Pwll Mawr) coal mine allows tourists to experience underground mining conditions. Beyond the mine, heather plants are steadily turning old mounds of mine waste into purple-clad mounds, and former retention ponds are now nature preserves. Heading north from the former industrial valleys, the scenery soon transitions to rolling farmland, around the scenic hills of the Brecon Beacons region. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardigan,_Ceredigion http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Quay http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newport,_Pembrokeshire http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porthgain http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blaenavon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Pit_National_Coal_Museum

Since the end of Nepal's civil war 3 years ago, the state has remained paralyzed by political in-fighting, allowing criminal groups to thrive. One human rights organisation estimates that over 2,100 people have been kidnapped for ransom, and many believe the surge in crime is due to political parties protecting criminals. In Kathmandu, criminal gangs focus on kidnapping the middle classes who lack political connections. Their favoured targets are businessmen and shop-owners of Indian origin, commonly known as Marwaris. Lacking trust in their government, people have turned to displays of collective violence to get results. Earlier this year, they directed their fury at kidnappers. Within 1 month, 15 people were brutally lynched by angry mobs in Terai but all of those attacked were innocent. "The Terai has become worse than ever - it has become very, very violent."

So far this year,for one reason or another I've not managed to get to any of the events I had been looking forward to attending. So It made a pleasant change to be able to get along to The West Lancashire Light Railway for their Steam Gala on the 6th and 7th August 2016. It was made all the more enjoyable when I realised it had been almost three years since my last visit, Time sure is flying past. Irish Mail, Utrillas, Joffre and guest Locos GP39 and Alpha were in action over the weekend. The Merseyside Transport Trust were offering rides around the local area on vintage buses. There was also plenty of things to do and see for all the Family. As I said before, This was the first event I've managed to get to this year and I was not disappointed. Even the weather was kind to us,although compared to Saturday, Sunday was a slightly overcast and a little windy. Once again the guys at the WLLR produced a brilliant event they can be very proud of.

TestTown piloted in Dunfermline in 2013, after two years of planning and development. The project was run by the Carnegie UK Trust working with Fife Council and local BID Dunfermline Delivers as local hosts, and set a challenge for 16-30 year olds to come up with innovative business uses for town centre spaces. Young people across the UK applied through a national online system, over a three-month period. Eleven teams were selected by a business judging panel to come to Dunfermline for the finals festival event in June. Each team was given a small business grant, mentoring and support. They were given two days to set up in vacant units across the town and two days to trade to the public. Our aim was to see if young people had something new to offer town centres; to provide them with chances to test out and grow new businesses; and to see how consumers responded to a different experience happening in their town.

Isle of Skye er en af Skotlands smukkeste øer. Vil du også rejse til Skotland? Læs mere her: https://rejsekris.dk/tours/skotland Efter at have udforsket Glencoe kørte vi videre vestpå til Isle of Skye. Landskabet forandrer sig allerede inden man rammer øen, men den får lige en 'tand' mere på Skye, hvor naturen bare er lidt vildere og barskere end på det skotske fastland. Isle of Skye er, i mine øjne, et sted alle burde rejse til. Det er ganske overskueligt at flyve til Edinburgh, leje bil og køre vestpå via Glencoe til Isle of Skye. Kontakt mig gerne, hvis du har spørgsmål om rejser til Skotland. Enten på Rejsekris Tours hjemmesiden eller i en mail til kf(a)rejsekris.dk God rejse til Skotland 😀

An overview of the Blackfriars archaeological dig in Leicester. Wardell Armstrong Archaeology excavated the site on behalf of developers Watkin Jones to pave the way for the development of proposed student accommodation. Remains on the site clearly contained very significant information on Leicester's Roman and Iron Age past, which would have to be fully recorded by excavation before the development could proceed. Special thanks to Chris Wardle, Leicester City Archaeologist. Contributions from:- Nick Daffern, Senior Project Manager Wardell Armstrong Archaeology Adam Slater, Project Officer Wardell Armstrong Archaeology Video by Rick Martin-Bacon.

The Lake District in northwest England is a very popular holiday destination, famous for lakes, forests, mountains and quaint villages. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2017. We are staying in Bowness-on-Windermere for several days of fun excursions. Click to Subscribe http://bit.ly/2pmdyeu http://tourvideos.com/ our tour arranged by: http://www.mountain-goat.com Four of the top activities are exploring the towns, taking boat rides, do a little nature walking, and take a driving tour of the region to see the other nearby lakes and quaint villages. Most of our program takes place during a van tour of the lakes that visits 10 different lakes, including Brotherswater, Derwent Water, Grasmere, Ullswater and Windermere. On the van ride we also take a walk in the village of Grasmere, famous for William Wordsworth. You will be amazed by Castlerigg Stone Circle, 4500 years old, one of the area’s historic gems. Then we take a lunch stop in Keswick, whilst exploring the traditional Lakeland market town. We also do a Lake Cruise, enjoying uninterrupted views of the Lakeland fells from Derwent Water. You can pick from a variety of kinds of excursion boats on Lake Windermere: you can have a one-hour cruise or go for an all-day expedition. You could enjoy a cruise with dinner, there are hydrofoils, rowboats or sailboats for rent -- all kinds of nautical activities exist here on the shores of Lake Windermere. By the end of the 18th century the region was already becoming popular with visitors and this has steadily grown to the point where today nearly 20 million annual visitors enjoy the beauties of this special place. This huge amount of tourists can be a challenge to deal with in your visit, but you will find the beauties of the natural landscapes make your efforts quite worthwhile. In this show we have useful suggestions to help your planning. Summer season is obviously most crowded and brings with it the best weather with least chances of rain, so take your chances, but we suggest the shoulder season, like the visit shown here which was during May, a perfect time to visit. We never felt inconvenienced by any crowds. After all, facilities like hotels and restaurants are able to handle the peak crowds of summer, so if you are here in May, with proper reservations at a decent hotel, you will have no problems. Of course the summer is when everybody wants to be here but we find that May is ideal. You’ll need to spend at least several nights in the area this to really get a chance to see the charming countryside, explore some towns, go shopping, and perhaps enjoy some fine dining. This is actually two towns joined together as one: Windermere is a mile to the north and Bowness-on-Windermere lies along the shores of the lake. Each center has its cluster of shops and restaurants, but the main focus is down at Bowness, which has most of the hotels and that special setting along the water. The town of Bowness is a good base of operations for heading out to see the other lakes in the district and enjoying some day tours as we will be doing. Windermere is the largest and the longest lake in the British Isles, about 10 miles long with a 24-mile circumference, and there are several villages along the shores of the lake. We see Lake Windermere the easy way, on a boat ride. We are travelling in mid-May and ran into some great weather. And actually it’s quite pleasant the temperature here is in the low 70s there is a slight breeze on the lake but not terribly windy. a most pleasant day. The temperature is pleasant enough that it’s comfortable to sit outside, After all you want the view -- that’s why we’re enjoying this boat ride, to have a look at this charming rolling countryside along the shores of the lake of Windermere. Some of us decided to get off the boat at Ambleside which is one of the main small towns here in the Lake Country. There's a level nature trail from the boat dock to Ambleside town passing first through an open meadow with some Roman ruins visible, and then along beautiful stream. We also get to see the sheep frolicking around. The walk only took about the walk only took about 30 minutes. We came upon foundations of ancient Roman buildings. From such forts the Romans could control hundreds of square miles. the army was staffed in part by Roman soldiers and mercenaries, some of them from Yugoslavia. Roman rule began in Britain back in A.D. 43. A massive army of 40,000 soldiers quickly conquered most of the island and Romans remained in control for the next 300 years. When the path follows along the stream it becomes so beautiful, lined with wildflowers, that you feel you stepped into some kind of movie or dream. Those few minutes became one of the top highlights of the three-week tour of the British Isles. A simple walk through the woods could provide a transcendental experience.
