About this product
- DescriptionHow did medieval Europeans have such specific geographic kwledge of North America, a land even their most daring adventurers had t yet discovered? In Erikson, Eskimos, and Columbus, James Robert Enterline presents new evidence that traces this kwledge to the cartographic skills of indigeus people of the high Arctic, who, he contends, provided the basis for medieval maps of large parts of North America. Drawing on an exhaustive chrological survey of pre-Columbian maps, including the controversial Yale Vinland Map, this book boldly challenges conventional accounts of Europe's discovery of the New World.
