        The Voyage of Zheng He II

        In this video segment adapted from 1421: The Year the Chinese Discovered America? Gavin Menzies claims the Chinese during the Ming Dynasty successfully made global naval expeditions around the world and discovered the North American continent prior to Columbus. How did they do it? According to Chinese scholars, China, under the command of Admiral Zheng He, had the naval capabilities, labor, motivation, and daring to build a fleet of 300 vessels to mount seven epic voyages. To learn more about Gavin Menzies’s theory, Zheng He and Chinese expeditions around the globe, see the video segment entitled “The Voyage of Zheng He - I.”
