Although few people had travelled or explored before 1400, we have learnt that some people like Marco Polo did go out and explore before this date. On the first page of this booklet, we were told how Marco Polo’s stories and tales of his journeys were extremely popular in Italy and around the rest of the world.
Before great discoverers sailed on their journeys exploring new parts of the world, they listened to everything that other travellers could tell them. Often these tales were frightening. Often these tales were untrue. But at the time, the traveller who witnessed the event did not really know what he was witnessing.
