Explorers and Explorations

These days we often forget that there once was a time when people thought the world was flat. There was a time when our perception of the world was very narrow. Now we know about, or can find out about, countries all over the world. We are able to do this because brave men and women explorers left the places they knew to find out about new lands. If you are interested in this feature visit the Biographies page. Here you will find features about explorers such as Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan, and Marco Polo.
