Want to see a map of where the action takes place in public domain texts that are digitized as a part of Project Gutenberg? If so check out GutenCarte. On the site you’ll find links to maps that show where things happen in Tale of Two Cities, The Odyssey, and The War of The Worlds – to name a few.

When you click on a title you’ll see a map of where events take place. In the top right click on the link labeled “Browse” and that lets you read the text and look at the map at the same time. Locations embedded in the text are clickable. A click on a place name brings up a listing of everywhere that location is included in the text.

There’s more but go ahead and explore.

Any ideas on what the implications for teen reading and learning are with a resource like GutenCarte?
