Explore George Eliot's trips to Italy
- First trip to the Continent in 1849, with George Henry Lewes;
- Four trips to Italy in the 1860s, also with Lewes; and
- The itinerary of her honeymoon in 1880 with John Cross.
These maps were designed by Dr. Antje Anderson and published on the George Eliot Archive in 2019.
The George Eliot Archive will continue to add more maps. Specifically, under construction are interactive maps of Eliot's travels abroad--including her many trips to Germany and her 1867 trip to Spain--but also her domestic travels and various English homes, which will provide important further contextual details for understanding Eliot's life and works.
These additional projects offer opportunities for collaboration and crowd-sourcing, so please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in contributing to a George Eliot geo-spatial project.
