Fish on Friday: Feasting, Fasting, and the Discovery of the New World
Brian Fagan (au)
What gave Columbus the confidence in 1492 to set out across the Atlantic Ocean? A reasonable explanation is that Columbus was heir to a body of knowledge about seas and ships acquired over many centuries. In Brian Faganís view, the discovery of America is the product of the long sweep of history: the spread of Christianity and the radical cultural changes it brought to Europe, the interaction of economic necessity with a changing climate, and generations of unknown fishermen who explored the North Atlantic in the centuries before Columbus. Encompassing ancient mythology, medieval religion, boatbuilding, commerce, and cutting-edge climate science, this wide-ranging book shows the intricate tapestry of history in all its complexity.
