UNESCO Names New World Heritage sites

The United Nations culture body UNESCO has named World Heritage sites at eight locations across Italy dating from the Germanic Lombard people's invasions of the 6th-8th centuries AD, the UN said.

The eight sites dating from 568 - 774 AD are located in Castelseprio and Gorante Olona and Brescia in Italy's northern Lombardy region, in Cividale del Friuli in the northeastern Friuli district, in Spoleto and Perugia in the central Umbria region, and in Benevento and San Michele sul Gargano in the southern Campania and Puglia regions.

The Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia, the Archaeological Sites of the Island of Meroe in Sudan, Jordan's Wadi Rum Protected Area and the Fagus Factory in Alfeld, Germany were also named World Heritage sites at a meeting of UNESCO in Paris taking place through Wednesday.
