In 1398, Venician sailor Zeno crossed the Atlantic with a "Prince of the Islands, " leaving a description of his exploration. Pohl pieced together the evidence, identifying the prince as Henry Sinclair. Using patient research and an astonishing piece of calligraphic detective work, he reveals the purpose of this voyage.

About the Author:

Pohl’s main source of information and inspiration was Zeno Narrative, a collection of dispatches written by Sinclair’s tireless chronicler Antonio Zeno who accompanied “A Prince of the Islands” on a transatlantic voyage and described in detail their arduous journey. Thanks to Pohl’s patient research (which includes an astonishing piece of calligraphic detective-work), we now know how the purpose of the expedition, the exact date of its arrival in New World and place of landing: we know of Prince Henry’s meeting with natives and of the enormous cultural impact he made upon them; and we know that he left a permanent memorial stamped on a rock in New England.
