Cultural Atlas of James Cook's First Pacific Voyage, 1768-1771

This atlas is made up of a series of detailed maps showing the location of places of cultural significance at the time of Cook's first voyage aboard H.M.S. Endeavour in:


Tierra Del Fuego


The Society Islands


Botany Bay


Endeavour River

Most places marked on these maps are hyperlinked to entries within the South Seas Companion that explain their cultural significance, as well as providing links to additional Companion entries about people and cultural practices associated with these places.

Many Companion entries have galleries allowing you to see digital copies of historical images from the collections of the National Library of Australia depicting the life-ways and culture of Pacific peoples in the century or so after 1760.
