The Greek War of Independence is inextricably linked to the land of the Peloponnese. That is not surprising if we look back at all the events that took place on its mountains, cities and shores. How many of those numerous events are we actually familiar with? How many of their aspects have we been taught?
Those are only two of the questions at the root of DIADROMES-1821, a new, free application, which aims to point out landmarks in the Peloponnese, bearing a considerable role during the War of Independence.
Original and respectful, this application is the latest addition to the celebrations of the 200 years from the Greek War of Independence, with the kind support of the J.F. Kostopoulos Foundation.
Through the brief and concise audio clips, the goal of the application to reach out to an audience beyond history buffs and ideally be a tool in the hands of teachers, helping them make teaching history more appealing by pointing out its connection to the land.
