I learned in school that Columbus discovered America. But one man and a huge team have mounted a body of evidence that suggests the Chinese beat him to it. Do history books have to be rewritten? Gavin Menzies is the author of 1421: The Year China Discovered America, a 14-year journey of exploration and discovery. This controversial discovery is bound to challenge your thinking about the realm of exploration and discovery. Gavin has also written a book about the European Renaissance called 1434: The Year A Magnificent Chinese Fleet Sailed to Italy and Ignited the Renaissance. This interview with Gavin, which is the first in a two-part interview, will be focused primarily on 1421.
