I was interested in researching the virtual world of Greece in Second Life and decided upon the ancient Spartan Empire. (SLurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/The%20Spartan%20Empire/211/226/26/)
Upon my visual scan I first noticed that you are not able to fly and the area seems to be surrounded by many “huts”. The huts are set up as shops, one even selling swords and shields. There is some sparse vegetation and stone is very prevalent. There are also many columns that were very common during that age. There are numerous vases containing an open flame and a couple golden statues of Spartan Soldiers are scattered around the site. There is a large Coliseum with a statue of a soldier on a horse at the top of the hill, which is lead up to by stone steps. I also came upon a watering well, which indicates habitation. Countless trees also occupy the green area. The entire “island” is surrounded by water on all sides.
