Bibliography at bottom of description AUTHOR'S NOTE: This video is meant to give a non-bias account of the events which unfolded when Columbus and his crew made contact with the people of the Caribbean. Of course, I was not able to fit everything into the video; I had to omit details, such as the fact that the Taino were not the only people that Columbus encountered (there were also the Ciguayo tribe and Carib cannibals). A second particular is that not all fault should lie directly on Columbus' shoulders. His crew of 1,200 for the second journey consisted partly of convicts and landless nobles, the worst type of people with which to build a settlement. Another fact is that Columbus grew up in societies (Genoa, then Portugal) that kept domestic slaves. I have no political agenda for making this video. I am a student of history and I have tried to give an account of Columbus' journeys that is as close as we can possibly get to the truth. I will I admit that I am not a fan of Columbus. I think he was cruel, even for his time. We cannot judge a 15th-century human from a 21st-century perspective; but even for the 15th century, he was an awful arbiter. Sources: Bergreen, Laurence.

History books traditionally depict the pre-Columbus Americas as a pristine wilderness where small native villages lived in harmony with nature. But scientific evidence tells a very different story: When Columbus stepped ashore in 1492, millions of people were already living there. America wasn't exactly a New World, but a very old one whose inhabitants had built a vast infrastructure of cities, orchards, canals and causeways. The English brought honeybees to the Americas for honey, but the bees pollinated orchards along the East Coast. Thanks to the feral honeybees, many of the plants the Europeans brought, like apples and peaches, proliferated. Some 12,000 years ago, North American mammoths, ancient horses, and other large mammals vanished. The first horses in America since the Pleistocene era arrived with Columbus in 1493. Settlers in the Americas told of rivers that had more fish than water. The South American potato helped spark a population explosion in Europe. In 1491, the Americas had few domesticated animals, and used the llama as their beast of burden. In 1491, more people lived in the Americas than in Europe. The first conquistadors were sailors and adventurers. In 1492, the Americas were not a pristine wilderness but a crowded and managed landscape. The now barren Chaco Canyon was once covered with vegetation. Along with crops like wheat, weeds like dandelion were brought to America by Europeans. It’s believed that the domestication of the turkey began in pre-Columbian Mexico, and did not exist in Europe in 1491. By 1500, European settlers and their plants and animals had altered much of the Americas’ landscape. While beans, potatoes, and maize from the Americas became major crops in continental Europe.

Most are taught in school that Christopher Columbus discovered America... But did he really discover it? Was he the first European in the Americas? The answer to both those questions is "no." So what was going on in Americas before 1492? Who really discovered America? Well, many people before him. Western Europeans simply hadn’t heard from the rest of the world yet, or just believed what they wanted to believe...

Christopher Columbus (Italian: Cristoforo Colombo;[a] c. 1451 – 20 May 1506) was an Italian explorer, navigator, colonizer, and citizen of the Republic of Genoa. Under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean. Those voyages and his efforts to establish permanent settlements on the island of Hispaniola initiated the European colonization of the New World. Western imperialism and economic competition were emerging among European kingdoms through the establishment of trade routes and colonies. Columbus proposed to reach the East Indies by sailing westward, and this eventually received the support of the Spanish Crown, which saw a chance to enter the spice trade with Asia through a new westward route. During his first voyage in 1492, he reached the New World instead of arriving at Japan as he had intended, landing on an island in the Bahamas archipelago that he named "San Salvador". Over the course of three more voyages, he visited the Greater and Lesser Antilles, as well as the Caribbean coast of Venezuela and Central America, claiming all of it for the Crown of Castile. Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas, having been preceded by the Viking expedition led by Leif Erikson in the 11th century, but his voyages led to the first lasting European contact with the Americas, inaugurating a period of European exploration, conquest, and colonization that lasted several centuries. These voyages had, therefore, an enormous impact in the historical development of the modern Western world. He spearheaded the transatlantic slave trade and has been accused by several historians of initiating the genocide of the Hispaniola natives. Columbus himself saw his accomplishments primarily in the light of spreading the Christian religion. Columbus never admitted that he had reached a continent previously unknown to Europeans, rather than the East Indies for which he had set course. He called the inhabitants of the lands that he visited indios (Spanish for "Indians"). His strained relationship with the Spanish crown and its appointed colonial administrators in America led to his arrest and dismissal as governor of the settlements on the island of Hispaniola in 1500, and later to protracted litigation over the benefits that he and his heirs claimed were owed to them by the crown.

In which John Green teaches you about the beginning of the so-called Age of Discovery. You've probably heard of Christopher Columbus, who "discovered" America in 1492, but what about Vasco da Gama? How about Zheng He? Columbus gets a bad rap from many modern historians, but it turns out he was pretty important as far as the history of the world goes. That said, he wasn't the only pioneer plying the seas in the 1400s. In Portugal, Vasco da Gama was busy integrating Europe into the Indian Ocean Trade by sailing around Africa. Chinese admiral Zheng He was also traveling far and wide in the largest wooden ships ever built. Columbus, whether portrayed as hero or villain, is usually credited as the great sailor of the 15th century, but he definitely wasn't the only contender. What better way to settle this question than with a knock-down, drag-out, no holds barred, old-fashioned battle royal? We were going to make it a cage match, but welding is EXPENSIVE.

Africans had frequently sailed across the Atlantic to the Americas, thousands of years before Columbus and indeed before Christ. The great ancient civilizations of Egypt and West Africa traveled to the Americas, contributing immensely to early American civilization by importing the art of pyramid building, political systems and religious practices as well as mathematics, writing and a sophisticated calendar. The strongest evidence of African presence in America before Columbus comes from the pen of Columbus himself. In 1920, a renowned American historian and linguist, Leo Weiner of Harvard University, in his book, Africa and the discovery of America, explained how Columbus noted in his journal that Native Americans had confirmed that “black skinned people had come from the south-east in boats, trading in gold-tipped spears.” Sources: https://ancient-code.com/ https://www.globalresearch.ca http://www.ancientpages.com 💜 Subscribe and like if you enjoyed the video.

THE LETTER OF COLUMBUS ON THE DISCOVERY OF AMERICA - FULL AudioBook | GreatestAudioBooks - On the evening of 3 August 1492, Columbus departed from Palos de la Frontera with three ships: a larger carrack, the Santa María ex-Gallega ("Galician"), and two smaller caravels, the Pinta ("The Pint", "The Look", or "The Spotted One") and the Santa Clara, nicknamed the Niña ("Girl") after her owner Juan Niño of Moguer. The monarchs forced the citizens of Palos to contribute to the expedition. The Santa María was owned by Juan de la Cosa and captained by Columbus. The Pinta and the Niña were piloted by the Pinzón brothers (Martín Alonso and Vicente Yáñez). Columbus first sailed to the Canary Islands, which belonged to Castile. He restocked provisions and made repairs in Gran Canaria, then departed from San Sebastián de La Gomera on 6 September, for what turned out to be a five-week voyage across the ocean. At about 2:00 in the morning of 12 October, a lookout on the Pinta, Rodrigo de Triana (also known as Juan Rodríguez Bermeo), spotted land, and immediately alerted the rest of the crew with a shout. Thereupon, the captain of the Pinta, Martín Alonso Pinzón, verified the discovery and alerted Columbus by firing a lombard. Columbus later maintained that he himself had already seen a light on the land a few hours earlier, thereby claiming for himself the lifetime pension promised by Ferdinand and Isabella to the first person to sight land. Columbus called the island (in what is now The Bahamas) San Salvador; the natives called it Guanahani. Exactly which island in the Bahamas this corresponds to is unresolved. Based on primary accounts and on what one would expect from the geographic positions of the islands given Columbus's course, the prime candidates are San Salvador Island (so named in 1925 on the theory that it was Columbus's San Salvador), Samana Cay, and Plana Cays. The indigenous people he encountered, the Lucayan, Taíno, or Arawak, were peaceful and friendly. Noting their gold ear ornaments, Columbus took some of the Arawaks prisoner and insisted that they guide him to the source of the gold. From the entry in his journal of 12 October 1492, in which he wrote of them: "Many of the men I have seen have scars on their bodies, and when I made signs to them to find out how this happened, they indicated that people from other nearby islands come to San Salvador to capture them; they defend themselves the best they can. I believe that people from the mainland come here to take them as slaves. They ought to make good and skilled servants, for they repeat very quickly whatever we say to them. I think they can very easily be made Christians, for they seem to have no religion. If it pleases our Lord, I will take six of them to Your Highnesses when I depart, in order that they may learn our language." Columbus remarked that their lack of modern weaponry and metal-forged swords or pikes was a tactical vulnerability, writing, "I could conquer the whole of them with 50 men, and govern them as I pleased." On 13 January 1493, Columbus made his last stop of this voyage in the New World, in the Bay of Rincón at the eastern end of the Samaná Peninsula in northeast Hispaniola. There he encountered the warlike Cigüayos, the only natives who offered violent resistance during his first voyage to the Americas. The Cigüayos refused to trade. Columbus kidnapped about 10 to 25 natives and took them back with him (only seven or eight of the natives arrived in Spain alive). After spending more than a week in Portugal, and paying his respects to Eleanor of Viseu, Columbus again set sail for Spain. Ferdinand Magellan was a young boy and a ward of Eleanor's court; it is likely he saw Columbus during this visit. After departing, and after reportedly being saved from assassins by King John, Columbus crossed the bar of Saltes and entered the harbor of Palos de la Frontera on 15 March 1493. Word of his finding new lands rapidly spread throughout Europe.

The President of Turkey has made a controversial statement saying that he believes Muslim explorers discovered the Americas prior to Christopher Columbus’ voyage in 1492. The President of Turkey recently made a statement saying that he believes Muslim explorers discovered the Americas prior to Christopher Columbus’ voyage in 1492. According to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Muslims had visited the Americas a couple of hundred years before Columbus. Erdogan is quoted as saying: “Contacts between Latin America and Islam date back to the 12th century. Muslims discovered America in 1178, not Christopher Columbus.” The claim is based on an article written in 1996, where the historian Youssef Mroueh wrote that in Columbus’ diary he mentions the existence of a mosque on a hill in Cuba. Some experts say that this reference was metaphorical to describe the landscape, and there is no evidence that Islam was being practiced in America at this time. Erdogan made the statement at a conference of Latin American Muslim leaders that took place in Istanbul. He also mentioned that he would like to discuss building a mosque in the location described in the diary of Columbus. The first people to arrive in America are widely believed to have done so 15 thousand years ago by crossing the Bering Strait. It’s also thought by many that the first Europeans to visit the shores of North America landed 500 years prior to Columbus and were Norse sailors.

Before America was “discovered” by Europeans, there lived an estimated 100 million people in North and South America. The American anthropologist Henry F. Dobyns went out of 112 million. In the area north of the Rio Grande lived according to him 18 million people.

It seems as if every part of the old world, has a theory of how they got to the new world before Columbus. Last time we discussed those theories that have the highest chance of being true, and now we will go into the more outlandish ones. This part will focus on hypothetical travelers from China, and use them as a glimpse into why we develop these theories, even if they aren’t likely to be true.

We suggest Columbus is actually ST CHRISTOPHER. SO, Did "CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS..." live in Roman times!? There is more than one Columbus! More than one America Discovery! Is the map 'Columbus' used actually from the earlier voyage?! Biggest expose yet! The Columbus story is full of holes! History is so so so so so wrong about Columbus that It's hard to even see where to begin! * Columbus' signature looks RomanoGreek * Admiral Piri Remis' Columbus' map is of Brazil. Columbus did not chart its coast! Only briefly! * Roman galley in Brazil * Tiwanaku built (i think rebuilt) in Roman times, Kalasassasya temple looks like Temple Church in London, which must have been a Roman building! * Christobal Colon was possibly a different man who ALSO found America using Christohper's earlier maps!? * ST CHRISTOPHER is the real Christopher Columbus?! Columbus actually just means dove. It means HOLY SPIRIT CARRIER OF JESUS. * Why does Columbus have Templar Sails? St Brendon had the same sails and went to America with Romamo-Irish Sails.

The idea that Columbus discovered America has been receding for many years. Leif Eiriksson’s settlement there five hundred years earlier was regarded as semi-mythical until excavations in Newfoundland proved its truth. Before Columbus describes how there is an increasing body of evidence to show that Europeans were crossing the North Atlantic continually after 1000AD. Licensed from ITV Global

"in 1492, columbus sailed the ocean blue.." it's a history lesson today guys. sci fi will return soon. it's important to know our past. smart is good (and sexy). christopher columbus discovered the new world, but not america. he landed on what he called, "hispanola," on october 12th, 1492. he thought he had made it to india, not ever conceiving the idea that the were two whole continents in between. the world was still flat in many people's eyes, no one had imaged that there were two additional giant land masses on earth. hispanola, in the caribbean, is the island of what we now know as haiti / dominican republic. columbus didn't actually discover america or columbus, ohio, as many think (and have written to me recently). let's clear up a few things (not addressing columbus, ohio-cuz, d'uh). in 1499, the italian cartographer (map maker), amerigo vespucci, sailed to america, south america that is. he calculated the earth's circumference to within 50 miles and proved that south america was in fact a new world, not india as guessed by columbus. and yes, the reason american indians/ native americans were refered to as "indians," goes all the way back to columbus. columbus was under strict guidelines from queen isabella of spain, his benefactor, to open a new trade route to india or bring back wealth/gold. when christopher columbus returned to hispanola, the following year, he decimated the entire island, culture and local civilization with his army, bringing back gold, from the mines, to spain. columbus broke through many barriers and limited thinking in order to get funding for his first voyage, and discovering a new world was a great thing, although accidentally looking for a cheaper way to get to india, but at what cost? hopefully, we can learn from our past, as not to make similar mistakes in the future. popular videos: The Count & BatDog take the Ice Bucket Challenge: http://youtu.be/IuS1ZMcYbp4 SDCC GOTAHM cast interviews: Catwoman Camren Bicondova: http://youtu.be/6sqjSGU1PzU tv's ARROW: Felicity's Bagels: http://youtu.be/Tieu_60jLpA Best of Anime Expo AX 2014: http://youtu.be/V2bDDejalsY GRIMM spycam at SDCC Comic Con reveals no-one has ever watched the show http://youtu.be/rU0ka7GYuck SIRI makes fun of ARROW: http://youtu.be/rix6vvoRZcI channel description: everything sci fi: cosplay, superhero, star wars, star trek, anime, true blood, vampire, walking dead, zombie, game of thrones, the hobbit, lord of the rings, medieval dragon fantasy & everything in between. cosplay / comic con videos & interviews. updates on everything geeky: comics, sci fi tv & movies. we photograph & film what you love™ social media: http://youtube.com/scifielements http://twitter.com/scifielements http://facebook.com/scifielements1 http://scifielements.wordpress.com instagram : scifielements vine : scifielements for live events: http://livestream.com/scifielements (coming soon..) http://scifielements.com (coming soon..)

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue—and then he discovered America. That’s the story we all grew up with, but it’s now common knowledge that the Vikings beat Christopher Columbus to the Americas by around 500 years...They might not have been the only ones. From 1368–1644, China was ruled by the Ming Dynasty. As Europe was becoming dominated by ships and sails, China was also encouraging naval exploration, and one expedition may have led to America. The theory—which has been dubbed the “1421 theory,” the year the Chinese supposedly made landfall—was popularized by British amateur historian Gavin Menzies posits that during the 70 years before Columbus reached the New World, the Chinese were ruling major American tribes and interbreeding with the natives. There are multiple theories that ancient Semitic peoples visited the Americas. One formerly popular theory suggests that the Phoenicians were responsible for establishing the major pre-Columbian Native American empires. This theory is heavily associated with the legend of Votan, a mythological figure who allegedly founded the first city of the New World in 1000 B.C. Curiously, this critically important figure is referenced only in European texts. Most of the archaeological evidence in support of the Phoenician theory has been dismissed as fake, but there is an intriguing Carthaginian coin that may feature a map of the world. The Carthaginians were descendants of the Phoenicians, so their knowledge of the New World would support the theory. A more widespread theory concerns the Israelites. According to the Book of Mormon, three Israelite groups—the Nephites, Lamanites, and Mulekites—settled the Americas with a non-Israelite group called the Jaredites. They established major cities, wrote extensively in Hebrew and Egyptian, and imported flora and fauna from the Old World. These groups together were also said to be the ancestors of the Native Americans. Nothing in archaeology or genetic testing has substantiated any of these claims, and none of the groups are mentioned outside of Latter-day Saints literature, but because the Book of Mormon is considered divine, many believers accept the claims as fact. The most compelling evidence comes from a Chinese map that was supposedly drawn in 1408 and depicts the entire world, including the American supercontinent. Many historians have dismissed this map as a Chinese copy of a 17th-century Jesuit map, mostly because China itself is so poorly detailed. The Knights Templar were dissolved in the 14th century on charges of heresy, though many historians believe the real reason for the persecution was jealousy. Thanks to their banking system, the order of warrior monks was remarkably well off. Of course, being burned at the stake does tend to put a damper on business. During the fight against persecution, some knights supposedly escaped to Scotland, where they received help from Henry Sinclair, Prince of Orkney Islands. In 1393, Sinclair had carried out a survey of Greenland through a Venetian admiral. Now, in 1398, he was ready to lead an expedition to the New World by following old Viking routes. Twelve ships carried Sinclair and hundreds of Templar refugees to Nova Scotia, Canada, where the knights allegedly hid their treasure. Sinclair is then said to have explored as far south as present-day Massachusetts. Sinclair and the refugees may have assimilated with the natives instead of returning to Scotland. One outlandish claim is that the alleged gnostic beliefs of the Templar had a massive influence on Native American religion, while another states that the founding fathers were influenced by Templar teachings. The cited evidence includes a portrait of a medieval knight on a stone in Westford, Massachusetts and an old tower in Newport, Rhode Island that looks fairly European. The remains of an old castle, a cannon, and a stone wall in Nova Scotia are supposedly further evidence of the theory. The empire of Mali was a West African superpower in the late Middle Ages. Mali was stupendously wealthy, and its leader, Mansa Musa, was the richest man of all time. So mighty was his economic power that when he visited Egypt in 1324, he crashed the Egyptian gold market. While he was wreaking financial havoc on Egypt, Musa also told the story of his predecessor, Mansa Abubakari II. Abubakari had supposedly commissioned a voyage to the end of the Atlantic Ocean. He and his fleet never returned, and some speculated that he landed in Brazil in 1312. When Columbus arrived over 100 years later, he allegedly encountered African traders and spears tipped in African gold. The giant stone carvings of heads found in southern Mexico, called the Olmec Heads, have also been cited as evidence of Africans in pre-Columbian America. The Olmec are regarded as one of the first civilizations in Mexico and their stone heads display African features.
