The exploits of Marco Polo and Eric the Red are well-known today, but less-known are the many other explorers of the time and the extent of medieval European contact with other continents. Between 1000 and 1500, world trade and travel flourished as never before as Europe looked for new worlds to explore and conquer. This detailed introductory survey draws on a large and controversial body of evidence to chart the medieval European tradition of expansion, exploring its roots in Classical ideas of the world and tracing its influence on the famous voyages of the Renaissance. Phillips also provides fascinating discussion of the myths and hoaxes surrounding medieval exploration.
