Until recently, World Heritage Sites were selected using separate natural criteria and cultural criteria. Because of the problematic political implications of these categories as well as the pragmatic difficulties in cleanly identifying natural or cultural sties, UNESCO moved towards articulating hybrid selection criteria. Chapter 3 analyzes the evolution of UNESCO’s heritage site classification over time, focusing particularly on two sites in Meteora, Greece and Uluru Rock, Australia.
