New Evidence Confirms Columbus had Map







Skip the map, the text is vastly more important and it refernces a map that is extant.  The bottom line is that Columbus had a map to confirm the existence of serious landfall and he also knew of the wind direction in the northern latitudes.  He really needed both.  Key is that he knew he could come back.  


It also appears fully authentic and has not been lost so it is a real treasure.   I look forward to reading a translation.


It is also noteworthy that this brother had an excellent career as well after the discovery.

NEW EVIDENCE SHOWS COLUMBUS CARRIED MAP OF AMERICA ON HIS EXPLORATION VOYAGE


http://worldnewsdailyreport.com/new-evidence-shows-columbus-carried-map-of-america-on-his-exploration-voyage/



Toledo| A recently discovered journal dating from the 15th century and allegedly written by Bartholomew Columbus, the brother of the famous discoverer of the Americas, suggests that the Genoese explorer actually carried a rather detailed map of the continent when he left Spain on his first voyage.
The journal is entitled “La mia vita e le mie esplorazioni” (“My Life and My Exploration”) and is signed Bertomê Corombo, the Genoese name of Bartholomew Columbus. It is an autobiographic work of great quality that was revealed in May 2014 in a private collection of historical items, legacy of a dead Spanish aristocrat. It explains the role of Bartholomew in the exploits of his brother, including the fact that he sent a map detailing a new continent to Christopher Columbus in the 1470s, while he was a mapmaker for the Portugese King Henri the Navigator in Lisbon, the principal center of cartography of the time.
Dozens of tests were done on the book by various experts since its discovery, and every one of them suggests that the work is legitimate. The auction house Sotheby’s, which was charged with authentifying and evaluating the object, concludes that it is a genuine 15th century book, worth between 150 an 250 million Euros.

A small but well detailed map of America figures in the journal, which was allegedly written in 1496,a time when many of the regions figuring on the map are not supposed to have been discovered yet.
The book is a summary of the great events in the life of the lesser known brother of Christopher Columbus, who was born in 1461, and conceived with his brother the idea of travelling across the Atlantic ocean. In 1489 he went to England to seek assistance from Henry VII for an exploration voyage to the West, but he was unfavorably received by the King. He then sought help at the court of Charles VIII in France, with a similar lack of success. Meanwhile his brother Christopher was in Spain to persuade Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon to back his own voyage, and obtained their support.
Bartholomew Columbus traveled to Hispaniola in 1494 to meet his brother. After captaining one of the ships, he remained on the island for six and a half years (1494–1500), serving as governor with the title of Adelantado during his brother’s absences. He founded the city of Santo Domingo on Hispaniola between 1496 and 1498, which is now the capital of the Dominican Republic, and where he died on the 12th of August 1514.

Born in the Republic of Genoa, Bertomê Corombo is an important but obscure figure of the 15th Century.

Got it from Erik the Red's Viking Bounty.

Why are kids not educated with the real facts?

Fact is even before the Vikings, what we endear as Russians in modern times used a land bridge via Alaska to trade with the natives. Which is why the similarities are seen today in the ancient structures.

Peri Reis ( I hope this name is correctly spelled) had older, copied maps dating from antiquity that Colombo (his real last name) used. They had Arctic and Antarctic PRIOR ICE COVER land masses on them. Columbo knew what he was doing, and so did Isabella and Ferdinand because, as financers they were first presented with compelling that the voyage would be successful, and it was the map that provided this mutual confidence between the three.
