These voyages are a representation of the many expeditions dispatched by Henry in his lifetime. On these voyages, Cadamosto would discover the Cape Verde Islands, and expand the map of the west African coast as known to Europe.

My favorite new podcast

So well researched and presented, this is one of the best history podcasts I’ve encountered. I came for the doomed polar expeditions and stayed for everything else.
