Fabled Oceans, Imaginary Islands, Cities of Gold: The Role of Accident in European Exploration

Wednesday 17 April 2019, 7.00PM to 9.00pm

Enrol and pay online

This course will consider the frequently tenuous connection between the motives for European exploration and its actual achievements. The names of successful explorers and their ships are household names; we will look at the results of their attempts to find untold riches, mythical seas or to spread the word of God; at the disasters and disappearances; and the common experience that the discoveries made were not what the explorers had intended to  find.
