About

http://www.1421exposed.com

The http://www.1421exposed.com website has been set up by an international group of academics and researchers who are greatly concerned about the myths being created and perpetuated by Gavin Menzies, his business group, and his publishers.

In his book 1421: The Year China Discovered the World Menzies claimed Chinese admiral Zheng He had circumnavigated the globe, in the process “discovering” most of the world.

Subsequent media coverage has failed to accurately present to the public the large body of evidence that Menzies’ claim is a fabrication, without any basis in fact.

The purpose of this website is to present that evidence, and ensure that history is not rewritten by publishers more interested in short-sighted marketing campaigns that ensure their financial security, rather than intellectual integrity and public enlightenment.
