LECTURE: Columbus was NOT Italian but Portuguese

6:30 PM

free and open to the public

Columbus was Greek . He knew the world was round because all Greek Byzantine school children were taught this in 15th century. His log in the new world was written in his native language , Greek.
The Greek island he came from was Chios which was under Genovese political control at the time. So the Italian claim has some bearing, its just his ethnic orgin was Greek.
It is noted for its history of seafaring. He could not spreak nor write Italian. All his closest friends were Greek. His personality is unique and says Greek in capital letters. A German wrote a book on the identity of Columbus some 15 or so years ago and came to this conclusion. Search " Was Columbus Greek " for all the compelling evidence. The Columbos name, how he signed his name on many documents is found on Chios today.

Absolutely fascinating article. This is going to be a huge rewrite of history.

Thank you for a very excellent article.

Christopher B. after finishing reading Rosa's new book, I am convinced Rosa is right and that Columbus was a Templar Knight. Columbus The Untold Story is a monumental work of research and I believe soon all history books will change. I agre with your comment that Columbus served a higher authority and I am accept that higher authority is still running world events today.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
