Could it have been China…

Gavin Menzies takes the reader on a unique ride through the evidence for the case that the Chinese had many skilled seaman who explored much of the world prior to the conventionally accepted European exploration of the globe. He follows this idea further in his second book where he explains how during some of the Chinese seafaring expeditions they had formed relationships with Europeans and passed along crucial information regarding technological and artistic innovations. These are both fascinating reads for those looking to explore all the nooks and crannies of this time period. Menzies has done a great deal of research for these books and while not everything he claims can be verified 100%, he posits some very plausible and logical scenarios.
