Book Description :

The "Vínland Map" first surfaced on the antiquarian market in 1957 and the map's authenticity has been hotly debated ever since—in controversies ranging from the anomalous composition of the ink and the map's lack of provenance to a plethora of historical and cartographical riddles. Maps, Myths, and Men is the first work to address the full range of this debate. Focusing closely on what the map in fact shows, the book contains a critique of the 1965 work The Vinland Map and the Tartar Relation; scrutinizes the marketing strategies used in 1957; and covers many aspects of the map that demonstrate it is a modern fake, such as literary evidence and several scientific ink analyses performed between 1967 and 2002. The author explains a number of the riddles and provides evidence for both the identity of the mapmaker and the source of the parchment used, and she applies current knowledge of medieval Norse culture and exploration to counter widespread misinformation about Norse voyages to North America and about the Norse world picture.

Book Description :

The final decade of the 15th century was a turning point in world history. The Genoese mariner Christopher Columbus sailed westward on the Atlantic Ocean in 1492, famously determined to discover for Spain a shorter and more direct route to the riches of the Indies. Meanwhile, a fellow Italian explorer for hire, John Cabot, set off on his own journey, under England's flag. Here, Douglas Hunter tells the fascinating tale of how, during this expedition, Columbus gained a rival. In the space of a few critical years, these two men engaged in a high-stakes race that threatened the precarious diplomatic balance of Europe--to exploit what they believed was a shortcut to staggering wealth. Instead, they found a New World that neither was looking for. Douglas Hunter provides a revelatory look at how the lives of Columbus and Cabot were interconnected, and that neither explorer can be understood properly without understanding both. Together, Cabot and Columbus provide a novel and important perspective on the first years of European experience of the New World.

Book Description :

First published in 2000, Trade, Travel, and Exploration: An Encyclopedia covers the people, places, technologies, and intellectual concepts that contributed to trade, travel and exploration during the Middle Ages, from the years C.E. 525 to 1492. This comprehensive reference work contains entries on a large number of subjects, including familiar topics such as the voyages of Columbus and Marco Polo, and also information that is more difficult to find, for example, the traditions of travel among Muslim women and the influence of Viking travel on navigation and geographical knowledge. Bringing together more than 175 scholars from a variety of disciplines, it minimizes Eurocentric bias and offers extensive coverage of such topics as travel within Inner Asia, Mongol society, and the spread of Buddhism. Including an extensive map program and more than 125 illustrations, as well as bibliographies, a comprehensive index and "see also" references, Medieval Trade, Travel, and Exploration is a valuable reference guide for undergraduate and graduate students, scholars and also the general reader.

Book Description :

It is commonplace in our digitized world to think that technology is the primary agent of psychological and social change. In Interactive Realism Daniel Downes argues that it continues to be people who construct social reality through their interactions, critiquing the "tranformative turn" in media studies. Distinguishing between the Internet, a communication system, and cyberspace, an environment for human exchange, the author provides a framework for exploring the metaphors and images used in cyberspace to represent and model social reality. He clarifies how these symbolic interactions are linked to the technologies used to create, store, and transmit them and to their social context. Drawing on examples from digital games, web design, film, and photography, the author shows how individual experiences are calibrated by technology and how digital communication contributes to broader processes such as community building and public memory. Downes articulates a nuanced form of media ecology that does not focus on a single cause of change but rather on the relationships between embodied experience, communication systems, and representations. Interactive Realism establishes a new method for understanding the importance of digital media to the construction of social reality.

Book Description :

Volume I of the Canadian Centenary Series Now available as e-books for the first time, the Canadian Centenary Series is a comprehensive nineteen-volume history of the peoples and lands which form Canada. Although the series is designed as a unified whole so that no part of the story is left untold, each volume is complete in itself. Professor Oleson rediscovers the journeys of the Norse people from Iceland towards Arctic Canada, five hundred years before Columbus’ exploits. These Christian Europeans settled with Indigenous Canadians, building stone settlements, trapping and exporting the prized white falcon and polar bear to the courts of medieval Europe, and producing the unique Thule people, ancestors of the modern Inuit. In fact, Professor Oleson’s research has traced the tall white “Tunnit” people of Inuit mythology to these Norse settlers. Despite the eventual fading of contact with Europe, the Norse had built an irrefutable North Atlantic route which explorers and traders of the 17th century would follow in their pursuit of the riches of Asia and their creation of a lasting bond with Europe. First published in 1963, Tryggvi J. Oleson’s important contribution to the Canadian Centenary Series is available here as an e-book for the first time.

Book Description :

It's not what we read but rather how we read it that makes the difference!!!What if I told you things are not as they appear. Black is not black and White is not white and 130 B.C. is not 130 years before Christ. Now turn off the lights and tell me what is white and what is black, color is the refection of light, without light there is no color. That's what Rome did, they turned off the lights on the truth.And the way we been taught to record time is not the only way it was done.And that an ancient order set claim to the entire Western Hemisphere long before Columbus and possibly achieved it in 130 B.C. With B.C. possibly meaning before Columbus, before the cycle or before the comet of 1492 becoming 1362, possible in this case B.C. stood for all three events.130 B.C. is not as it appears and the claim was not made for a mortal king or country, but rather for a Supreme God, Under God laws.If you like riddles. If you like enigmas. If you would like to see history recorded and told differently or truer then you may be ready for this challenge. If you are then you are ready to look at the clues that was left behind with an open mind.If you like astronomy, I'll show you how different groups of people each use different galactic events besides the Star of Bethlehem to mark the start of their time and all the different groups calendar are tied together. We will be looking at the equivalent of several Stars of Bethlehem from here in the Americas.I'll be taking you through a dating wormhole without leaving the planet, making you scratch your head, laugh and wonder, "what if he is right. "This book just maybe the start of the rest of the story. If you read through this book the first time you will read it again and again.And you will possibly come to the same conclusion, "So that's how they did that. "And you will never read things the same way all the time again. Including the Book of Mormons with its three different voyages and possible dating enigmas, truest account ever written about the Americas."Sometimes it's not what is being said that's important, it's what not being said that is.You will be intrigued, so if you are ready to start a journey that will give you a lot to think about then turn to page 1. Unravel the truth.

ISBN : 1550022644
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

DOWNLOAD

Book Description :

This book seeks to provide illustrations of Artic mysteries and fictions which often occur as a result of misconceptions of Artic geography. The chapters are extremely varied in subject matter, and conclusions are in the domain of speculation. The book begins with very early examples of northern travels starting with the probable adventures of Pytheas the Greek, Brendan the Irish monk and the four medieval odysseys of Adam of Bremen, Nicolas of Lynn, Prince Henry Sinclair and Zeno of Venice. No account of polar enigmas would be complete without reference to the Franklin expedition, the possible fate of his lost ships and the debate over whether his men committed cannibalism. The book concludes with a deliberation on whether Cook or Perry actually did reach the North Pole, hinting that perhaps neither of them reached their objective.

Book Description :

This illustrated collection of essays examines early Native American contact with European explorers, fishermen, and traders in “Norumbega,” the sixteenth-century name of the Atlantic coast of New England near the Penobscot River in Maine. This coast was the focus of several French and English voyagers seeking a northwest passage and other avenues to riches and treasure. A tacit division gradually emerged: the French concentrated on the region north of the Penobscot and the English on the lands to the south. The 100 illustrations in this book come largely from the Osher Map Library at the University of Southern Maine and include many rare early maps (1500–1800). Ten are reproduced in full color.

Book Description :

In June 2015, the Most High allowed me to decrypt chapters 70-82 of the Book of EnochÕs courses of the heavenly luminaries. This text has for 500 years been lost to modern translation because of the Copernican heliocentric worldview. The riddle was resolved with the Flat Earth As Key To Decrypt The Book Of Enoch. In this last book of the trilogy, I explain the sides of the north connection to the throne of God, mount of congregation, JacobÕs ladder, New Jerusalem, bottomless pit, and abysmal chasm which situated at the North Pole is gateway into the EarthÕs hollow interior. A magnetic mountain is centered there surrounded by a giant whirlpool which sucking and spewing out the oceans alternatively every six hours causes the tidal rhythm. Embracing earth asÔflat disc with upturned edgeÕ described by August Picard one can unlock the geocentric cosmology affirmed by the Bible and other texts like Enoch.
