Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, oh Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks
The feats of exploration and discovery by the polynesians were truly incredible. If we knew who first discovered Hawaii I'm sure they'd be justly celebrated.
Just like the ruins of ancient city of Pompeii were discovered when people who did it were obviously not the first people ever to have known about the city, because someone had built it and lived there before.
Or William Herschel would still have discovered Uranus even if there had already been intelligent species living there.
The act of discovering something is almost always relative to your own state of knowledge. It's about finding something out on your own rather than learning from someone else.
