Travels of Odysseus in Google Earth

Odyssey and Odysseus in Google EarthFor some reason, I had the urge to find out where Odysseus might have travelled in the classic greek epic poem "Odyssey". Naturally, the Google Earth Community would be a good place to look. I entered "+odysseus +odyssey" in the search form and found this post by 'H21'. Last October, H21 posted this collection of placemarks showing the "traditional orthodox theory" for the locations described from Odyssey as Odysseus returns home from Troy.

H21 is from France and has posted a number of useful collections on the subjects of history, literature, biographies and more. Here is his own summary of some of his best collections.
