Beyond Thucydides: an interactive exploration of the Peloponnesian War

Created and developed by Amanda Morton

This map project is designed to provide an interactive exploration of Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War. Users can travel along a virtual timeline of the events of 431-404 by tracking the dates associated with each polis and area, or they may choose to visit select cities for more specific and localized information.

The locations on the map include external links, images, catalogues of events and selections of Thucydides' original text. Additional locations and events may be added to the current map in an effort to make it as comprehensive as possible. This map was created to provide students, educators, and afficianados of Classical Greece with an alternative method of learning about the Peloponnesian War and the makeup of the Greek world at war in the fifth century.
