9780245547300: The World before Columbus 1100-1492

Did the age of discovery begin with Columbus? In this lively and original book, Edward Burman argues passionately that this is a misconception and draws on contemporary accounts to describe how medieval travellers ventured beyond the boundaries of their world well before Columbus' discovery of America in 1492. Columbus's age of discovery, he argues, would be more accurately termed an "age of rediscovery and exploitation."
