The Maritime Discovery    

By speaking about maritime discovery majority of people would imagine Columbus and his time. But in the fact maritime discoveries were done few thousand years earlier. Mostly we have no written record from that time or they are still hidden somewhere in the tombs or not decoded yet. Thousand of Pacific islands were discovered by people who did not know how to write at all. Many places were discovered, forgotten and rediscovered again. Some discovery were described in writing, but for some reason ignored by the rest of the world for hundreds of years like for example Vikings explorations. Many today's book are covering just one continent, one ocean or one exploring nation. Here, on this page, we would like to put all maritime discoveries in timely order with the main credit to those great discoverers, who steeped on a virgin continents for the first time.
