The Agas Map

It presents the map as a zoomable, rotatable tiled image with several hundred locations plotted on it. In the default view, the locations are initially hidden; you can show them by checking checkboxes in the navigation panel which appears at the top right of the map. Locations in the navigation panel are sorted into categories; click on a category name to expand it and see all the locations. Some locations appear in more than one category. Zoom in and out using the scroll wheel on your mouse, or the zoom control at the top left. Apart from this, these are the main things you will want to do with the map: Find one or more specific locations and show them This is best done by searching in the navigation panel.

Mapping emotions in Victorian London. Mapping Emotions in Victorian London is a crowdsourcing project designed to expand possibilities for research in the humanities.

Mapping emotions in Victorian London

The project has invited anonymous participants to annotate whether passages drawn from novels, published mainly in the Victorian era, represented London places in a fearful, happy, or unemotional manner. This data from the crowd allowed us to generate the maps you find here, revealing a previously unseen emotional geography of Victorian London. We now invite you to explore them, and the underlying fictional passages, to discover the ways in which London was constructed, navigated, and represented emotionally in its fiction. This project was led by a research team from the Stanford Literary Lab, within the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), with generous support from the Andrew W.

In this segment of Secrets of Underground London, learn about how the technical prowess of the Victorians takes underground tunneling to a whole new level with the Thames Tunnel, the first tunnel under a river being used by the oldest Underground system in the world.

Social Studies, Engineering & Technology

In an effort to provide another way for goods and people to get across the river, Marc Brunel, the chief engineer of New York, designed the world’s first tunnel under a river. He created cages to prop up against the tunnel face, giving support to the soft tunnel walls while allowing workers to excavate earth from under the riverbed. Working with bricklayers, the tunnel could then be built inch-by-inch. The workers creating the tunnel worked in appalling conditions, dealing with sewage-filled water from the Thames, fires, and a fatal flood. After eighteen years, the tunnel was completed and deemed a huge success. Secrets of Underground London: Part 2.
