9780062236753 Greatly expanding on his blockbuster 1421, distinguished historian Gavin Menzies uncovers the complete untold history of how mankind came to the Americasâ€”offering new revelations and a radical rethinking of the accepted historical record in Who Discovered America? The iconoclastic historianâ€™s magnum opus, Who Discovered America? calls into question our understanding of how the American continents were settled, shedding new light on the well-known â€œdiscoveriesâ€ of European explorers, including Christopher Columbus. In Who Discovered America? he combines meticulous research and an adventurerâ€™s spirit to reveal astounding new evidenceÂ of an ancient Asian seagoing traditionâ€”most notably the Chineseâ€”that datesÂ as far back as 130,000 years ago. Menzies offers a revolutionary new alternative to the â€œBeringiaâ€ theory of how humans crossed a land bridge connecting Asia and North America during the last Ice Age, and provides a wealth of staggering claims, that hold fascinating and astonishing implications for the history of mankind.
