Star Fleet: Ming Dynasty Star Rafts Visit the World

Wednesday, December 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Join Jeff Jordan for another installment in his popular Travel in Time series. The Star Fleet is a nearly modern topic; set only a century before tiny Iberian ships and guns conquered half the world. These Chinese multi-cultural armadas with massive treasure ships sailed for only a few decades before they, along with their eunuch admirals and a trove of records, were destroyed by Confucian officials. In that time, however, the fleets reached well beyond Asia and perhaps to every other continent, before Henry the Navigator and Columbus. This is a geographical history rarely explored in schools, but it is a fascinating and important piece to help expand our understanding of human accomplishment. RSVP: 206.297.0875.
