WHO DISCOVERED AMERICA?

WHO DISCOVERED AMERICA?

From Gavin Menzies, the author of the blockbuster New York Times bestseller 1421, comes a revolutionary new account of how the first humans came to North and South America. Menzies reveals that ancient peoples used the oceans' natural currents and prevailing winds to make voyages across both the Atlantic and Pacific. What's more, we now must accept that they had time to develop remarkably advanced cultures. Armed with cutting-edge DNA evidence, newly unearthed artifacts, and astonishing linguistic and archaeological discoveries, Menzies shows humans have been making transoceanic voyages as far back as 100,000 years ago, vastly predating the supposed overland migration to the Americas during the last Ice Age. He posits that the ancient South American civilizations of the Olmec and Maya in Central and South America may have had direct origins and influences from Asia, and says that ancient maps held in the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, show there must have been sustained and dedicated voyages to the Western Hemisphere by Chinese explorers as early as 2200 BC; huge Chinese settlements occupied (and made exploratory journeys from) Nova Scotia. Japanese, Korean, and even earlier European voyages likewise predated the explorations currently recorded by history. Chapters include: A Land Bridge Too Far; Along the Silk Road; Plants Between Continents; European Seafaring, 100,000 BC; Mastery of the Oceans Before Columbus; The Genetic Evidence; In Search of Lost Civilizations; The Olmec: The Foundation Culture of Central America; Pyramids in Mexico and Central America; Pyramid Builders of South America; Kubilai Khan’s Lost Fleets; The 1418 Chinese Map of the World; Carolina and the Virginias; Nova Cataia: The Island of Seven Cities; The Pacific Coast of North America; Stone Age Sailors; The “Windover Bog” People of Florida; more.
