He had a theory on the migration of people and sailed a raft to prove that his theory was possibly true.
Great quiz. Forgot Ponce de Leon but got the rest.
He's most famous here for defeating the Armada but I don't think anyone is even that fussed about that. I guess there might be a statue of him somewhere but I don't know where it is.
So, in a sense, Drake is the first to fully captain a circumnavigation, but he was only able to do so because of Magellan's prior expedition and he only reluctantly crossed the Pacific because he was unable to find a more northern passage back to the Atlantic having sailed as far up the coast as California in search of one.
I often forget I have taken a quiz before, once I take it I usually remember, but I definitely don't remember a lot of the times if I have left a comment or not. (But I do read the comments before I post one, usually. So I go like OW I already said the exact thing I wanted to say this time. Or wow I really didn't know that back then??)
(yes that is with an U..)
