Marco Polo Map

This was conceived at first as vicarious armchair travel, and has since turned into a kind of pet obsession and digital pedagogical project. The author (Rachel Leow of the University of Cambridge) is reading and mapping her way through the Yule-Cordier edition of the Travels of Marco Polo, armed with the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica, Google Images and a lot of patience. You can keep up with these virtual travels by subscribing to the RSS feed of this map.
