From stately mansions to medieval cities, many of England's most historic places are uniquely associated with Jane Austen. The novelist stayed in medieval Southampton, Georgian Bath, and the ancient port of Bristol; visited relatives in breathtaking Stoneleigh Abbey in Warwickshire; and resided in the tiny village of Chawton and in the cathedral city of Winchester. Drawing on her descriptive letters, discover Austen's insights about the history, culture, important buildings, lifestyles, and treasures of these and the many other places that she encountered on her travels.

Taught by Lorella Brocklesby, adjunct professor of humanities, cultural historian.
