1029 GB - Dorset and East Devon Coast (2001)

Brief Description
"The cliff exposures along the Dorset and East Devon coast provide an almost continuous sequence of rock formations spanning the Mesozoic Era, or some 185 million years of the earth's history. The area's important fossil sites and classic coastal geomorphologic features have contributed to the study of earth sciences for over 300 years."

多塞特和东德文海岸
"多塞特和东德文海岸沿岸的悬崖,展示了约1.85亿年间的地球发展历程,其岩层序列几乎毫无间断地记录了中生代的地质史。该地区是重要的化石采集基地,具有典型的海岸地形特征,300多年来对地球科学研究做出了贡献。"

367 DE - Roman Monuments, Cathedral of St Peter and Church of Our Lady in Trier (1986)

Brief Description

"Trier, which stands on the Moselle River, was a Roman colony from the 1st century AD and then a great trading centre beginning in the next century. It became one of the capitals of the Tetrarchy at the end of the 3rd century, when it was known as the ‘second Rome’. The number and quality of the surviving monuments are an outstanding testimony to Roman civilization."

特里尔的古罗马建筑、圣彼得大教堂和圣玛利亚教堂
"特里尔位于摩泽尔河畔,在公元1世纪时是罗马殖民地。从公元2世纪开始,逐渐发展成了一个伟大的贸易中心。到了公元3世纪末,这里则成了四帝制(Tetrarchy)的首都之一,称作“第二罗马”。它的保护完好的大量历史遗迹都是罗马文明的有力证据。"
