Kunskapen om Amerika

Inlägg av Jerrark » 21 november 2020, 15:13

Omkring år 1000 kom ju nordbor att besöka och under en viss period också bo i Amerika. Berättelser om dessa besök kom ju också att skrivas ned i ett par sagor. Hur länge levde denna kunskap kvar? Jag kan tänka mig att nordborna på Grönland kan ha hållit kunskapen vid liv, och den fanns ju i sagorna på Island.

Men nådde denna kunskap någonsin resten av Europa? Kände Columbus till något om dessa gamla berättelser? Hur var det med folk i Norge, Sverige eller Danmark? Eller Tyskland? Hur långt spred sig kunskapen om att det fanns ett land i väst?

“Columbus had collected and collated information from many sailors about these legends. He even perused objects that had appeared to have floated across the Atlantic and arrived on the western shores of both Europe and Africa. Objects of strange purpose and design.
All of this information suggested that there were indeed lands to the west of Europe and lands with people in them. He merely assumed that this was the eastern coasts of Asia.”

“Some medieval geographers (Adam of Bremen, Ranulf Higden) knew about a remote land that the 'Vikings' called "Vinland" (though they translated it incorrectly) but they really didn't know where it was. Some put it east of Norway, others west of Denmark and some near Iceland. It doesn't help that most of these geographers thought it was an island that was found, not a continent.”
