You have been hired by Google Maps to map out new areas for their service. Unfortunately, your first job is to map out Hades. You need the job, so you stock up on plenty of doggie biscuits and burn ointment and head on your way.

You will find the description of Hades in your Edith Hamilton's Mythology book on pages 42-44 (or just read it here). You are welcome to seek out other sources for more accuracy of your map.


Here are the things that MUST be included on each map.

  • Archeron
  • Cocytus
  • Phlegethon
  • Styx
  • Lethe
  • Elysian Fields
  • Tartarus
  • Pluto's Palace
  • Wastes
  • Fields of Asphodel
  • Charon
  • Cerberus
  • Rhadamanthus
  • Minos
  • Aeacus
  • Hades (the god)
  • Persephone
  • Erinyes (Tisiphone, Megaera, Alecto)
  • Sleep (Hypnos)
  • Death (Thanatos)
  • Dream gates

How to make the map

  • You can use the large paper provided in class
  • or make one online. You may want to try Inkarnate. The best way to share this may be by pasting it onto a Google doc.
