Welcome to the Discoveries of the Americas project. This site is devoted to the collection and development of digital materials related to pre-modern travel around the world and to the many “discoveries” of the Americas between 500 and 1500ce. Our site is designed to to be interactive and ever-evolving. We are dedicated to the notion that the best learning and teaching comes from collaboration and teamwork. If you are interested in becoming a part of the project team, see the Collaboration link above.
