2016 EDU: The History collection in Kitely. A collection of OpenSim virtual worlds with some historical relevance

The History collection in Kitely.  
OpenSim virtual worlds with historical relevance
Serene Jewell recently organized a history month in Kitely.  One part of that was a history hub with walkin teleports to worlds with a historical connection.  The worlds and the history hub may persist indefinitely, so they may continue to be resources to educators and others interested in history. Here is a summary of what is available as the history month ends.
