Note: I do't really know why i set this page up but i like to collect data. Collecting historic data is interesting but major, it take lots of reading [which i hate] an lots of time [which i "seem" to be short off]. Time flies, ducumenting and reviewing it crawls.
If you search for more lists on the web then be carefull with US-Centric visions!
This can be tricky. Should there always be people involved? Should they actually be recognised "monuments"? Should it be tangible? Damn, this could get big, maybe the title is wrong?
