Mapping Early Haitian History

By Paul Clammer

In 2016 I was in Cap-Haïtien, working on an update for my guidebook to Haiti. Mapping is a key part of writing travel guides, and I spend a lot of time physically locating places and dropping pins on Google Maps. My first visit to Cap-Haïtien as a travel writer was in 2007, so it's a familiar city to navigate, a fact made even easier since its streets still retain the grid system laid down by French invaders in the late 17th century.
