Hosted by John Lippiett

Chart a course through the sea of time with Rear Admiral John Lippiett, an esteemed Viking guest lecturer, as he presents “Sailors Discover the Unknown World 500 Years Ago.” Spurred by improvements in seafaring technology, the discoveries of explorers such as Columbus, Vespucci and Magellan transformed the world of cartography and inspired the search for shorter trade routes to the East. In this illuminating lecture, learn what these early maps reveal about European explorers who helmed imperial vessels across the high seas in search of fabled riches.
