8 July - 5 October 2013
On 8 July 1618, Ben Jonson set out from London to walk to Edinburgh. Details of his journey were unknown until the recent discovery, in Cheshire Archives, of a manuscript account of Jonson's ‘Foot Voyage’ written by anonymous fellow walker.
Researchers from the University of Nottingham and University of Edinburgh completed an edition of the 'Foot Voyage'.
Jonson’s ‘Foot Voyage’ was digitally recreated, tweeted and posted on Facebook day by day from 8 July to 5 October 2013.
Follow Ben Jonson up the Great North Road, sharing his experiences of historic sites and the tales he was told, the colourful characters he met, plenty of generous hospitality, and lots of great British summer weather!
