Whether the limits on resources were due to population growth and overexploitation of resources or to natural disasters, the oral traditions of Polynesia describe competing chiefs--often two brothers or relatives--fighting over land and power, with the winner taking control of the land, and the loser being killed or forced to leave. Progress was now very slow, for none of the cataracts or rapids could be navigated; canoes as well as stores had to be dragged over land from point to point.

But, when the expansion of the Ottoman Empire caused disruption along these routes, Europeans were forced to seek alternative ways of importing these goods. In fact one of the great wars of the 1700s (the Seven Years War) was sparked by a young American officer (George Washington) in the backwoods of Virginia confronting some Frenchmen in a fort. Who in future generations will believe this? The full study was made available in Israel to local and foreign oil and gas exploration companies and other interested parties.

One afternoon, we cautiously make our way down a steep path—created by a small landslide and gully—to a narrow beach. A long drought had preceded Magellan's visit to these parts, but rain now began with the advent of the strangers, and the natives made sure that they had brought it with them. It was so still, "disturbed by neither wind nor waves," that the ship had to be towed by a smaller ship till they reached China. "This is a vast country," writes Ibn, "and it abounds in all sorts of good things—fruit, corn, gold, and silver.

The first permanent settlement in North America was founded at Jamestown, Virginia in 1607. He set himself this incredible task: to go out into the wilderness, the jungle, and the mountain-retreats where the hunted and implacable savages were hidden, and appear among them unarmed, speak the language of love and of kindness to them, and persuade them to forsake their homes and the wild free life that was so dear to them, and go with him and surrender to the hated Whites and live under their watch and ward, and upon their charity the rest of their lives!

Pope (ed.), with Shannon Lewis-Simpson, Exploring Atlantic Transitions: Archaeologies of Transience and Permanence in New Found Lands (Woodbridge, Suffolk and Rochester, NY: Boydell Press, 2013), pp. 25-34. Scott's failure to be first to the South Pole in 1912 was perhaps a sign that the age of British dominance in exploration was coming to an end. With the ice heaping high, "as the salt hills that are in Spain," and the ship in danger of going to pieces, they collected trees and roots driven on to the desolate shores from Tartary, "wherewith as if God had purposely sent them unto us we were much comforted."

In fact, the islanders regarded Chinese as being just about No1 for flavour, as they found them nowhere as salty as white men. Sabastian Cabot - son of Giovanni Caboto, born in Venice, sailed from England in 1508 searching for a North West Passage. However, we do have an accurate abstract of the journal written by Bartolome de las Casas in the 1530s. THE POTALA AT LHASA: A SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY VIEW. The maritime nations of that period carefully concealed their knowledge from one another.

The historian's distortion is more than technical, it is ideological; it is released into a world of contending interests, where any chosen emphasis supports (whether the historian means to or not) some kind of interest, whether economic or political or racial or national or sexual.

Here oysters abounded and "very large fish, and parrots as large as hens." This was especially true of a Genoese captain, Christopher Columbus, an experienced sailor who had seen most of the limits of European exploration up to that point in time, having sailed the waters from Iceland to the African coast. Some speculate that seamen from Bristol reached Newfoundland, or thereabouts, as early as the 1480s, predating Columbus's voyage of 1492. While captains such as Columbus, da Gama, and Magellan had to rely on their own skills as leaders and navigators, they also had an implicit faith in God's will and guidance in their missions.

A committee of merchants met at Marseilles and engaged the services of Pytheas, a great mathematician, and one who made a study of the effect of the moon on the tides. The mound building societies formed enormous earthworks into various shapes and sizes. Louis Joliet and Father Jacques Marquette reached in 1673 the Mississippi, and in 1682 Cavelier de la Salle explored the Mississippi to its mouth in the gulf of Mexico. There was an increasing emphasis on secular topics, including geography.
