Product Description
Christopher Columbus is usually given the credit for being the first European explorer to ‘discover’ the Americas in 1492.

This resource examines that claim through looking at his actual achievements and the reasons and results of his voyages.

Not only do we know that the Vikings were in North America 400 years before Columbus, but it is also important to examine Columbus within the context of his society and the knowledge of the day.
