Engineering An Empire: China in the Age of Zheng He

This will help flesh out the theory laid out in my previous post. This does not address Menzies' theory either pro or con, but does demonstrate for the record the voyages of the Chinese fleet in the 15th century that history acknowledges did take place, and they covered vast swaths of the globe.There are some discrepancies (the year of Zheng He's death for instance) but you will see how it was done in 1421 & 1434. Fascinating!...T
