MyReadingMapped has Google Maps, and Google Earth KML files, of hundreds of locations of ancient ruins. Unlike a lot of the coordinates you will find one at a time on Wikipedia, these Google Maps have over 100 locations in each map, and actually pin point (hit) the actual ruin so that it can be zoomed in on close. Many of these structures are rendered in Google Earth so using the associated KML, you can acquire within the Google Map, you can digitally walk around those that are rendered in 3D.
