SL Register of Historic Places

NEW!! Here’s an updated version of the Register Historic Places SL 2.5

Earthworks in the Amazon

UK Antiquity has published an article on large pre-Columbian earthworks in the Amazon, both in the floodplain and uplands. Google Earth was a key tool for finding some of these and several can be seen in Google Earth imagery at the placemarks in the attached kml file.
The article can be downloaded at:

The kml: Purus Geoglyph Earthwork Sites

My newest method for compiling slurl links to historic replicas in Second Life relies on Google Earth (GE).
Below are GoogleEarth kml files which will open in Google Earth.  The first contains several dozen placemarks to real world National Register of Historic Places buildings with an attached SL url link. Many of these locations also have 3D replicas in Google Earth for comparison. Download this, open SL and GE, double click the kml file and explore!
National Register Historic Places in SL and Google Earth

The second kml file
World Heritage Sites in SL and GE
includes World Heritage List sites throughout the world that are recreated in Second Life and also rendered in 3D in Google Earth. A great way to compare the two platforms and to look at the building in its real world context.

the links below connect in-world to Second Life. To visit, you must be logged in to SL.
some of these slurls will be gone/out-of-date. I;ll update them soon.
