For example, William Shakespeare in some of his writings, particularly “The Tempest”, he talks about the Bermuda’s location. Also, Charles Berlitz, which is known as an expert in the Bermuda Triangle has a book explaining the Bermuda Triangle’s existence. (0:46) In addition in 1942, the explorer Cristopher Columbus talked about “The New World.” When he was in the Bermuda Triangle’s area he said he saw strange lights in the ocean and that the direction of the wind was uninformed (“The Mystery of the Bermuda Triangle”
History is something that could get us more close and connected to the world. When there is so much we can do but know very little, the hunger of exploring and findings could be a very top, temptation to some. 3. There are many facts that suggest a logical explanation for the disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle. Even in the light of these facts, it has remained a place of myth and legend.
The Endurance was stranded in the frozen pack ice for nine months, eventually being surrounded and crushed by an iceberg. The crew saved as many supplies as they could and were forced to make camp on the frozen Antarctic, building housing out of ice and surviving on what they salvaged. The crew even built “Dogloos” for their dogs, which made for some of the most famous photos in Hurley’s collection. The crew kept moving on the ice floes, first setting up what was known as Ocean Camp on solidly packed ice next to their trapped ship. Later, they were forced to move to the volatile ice floes of what was known as Patience Camp after the Endurance
Literature of shipwrecks were also alluring because it allowed people to escape their realities and engage in exciting tales. Literature described the shipping industry and shipping disasters as a way to maintain social order. Amy states that shipwreck narratives reflected the important values of Americans. Narratives served as conduct manuals for society. Men were to be the protectors of woman and children and act as gentleman with self-control at all times.
He found an island in the Bahamas, South America, Jamaica, Guanaja Island, and Honduras. Christopher Columbus started the Columbian Exchange and he made the first connection between Europeans and the Americas. Columbus wrote 2 books on his voyages with the help of his son and brother. “Columbus’s accomplishments should be considered in conjunction with his failures. The “discovery” of America would certainly have taken place within 50 years of 1492 had Columbus not ventured West when he did: advances in navigation and ship construction made contact between the hemispheres inevitable.
The 9 barrels that were found empty, could have leaked. Those 9 were more flammable than the rest of the barrel. When they found out that those barrels were leaking, Briggs thought it was too dangerous to stay on board, so he ordered the crew to go into the lifeboats. The plan was to wait behind the Mary Celeste, the boat connected to the Mary Celeste with ropes, but the ropes snapped and the crew went into the open sea. Eventually, the cargo of the ship didn’t explode and the Mary Celeste remained intact.
Covering about 500 thousand square miles of ocean from the southeastern point of Miami, Florida, the triangular section was referred to as the Bermuda Triangle or the Devils Triangle. During one of Christopher Columbus’ travels, when he traversed in these waters on his first expedition to the New World, he reportedly say that he saw a great flame of fire (it maybe a meteor) crashed into the sea and that weird light appeared a few weeks later a few distance away from their boat. Erratic compass readings were also written by Columbus during his travels in these waters, well perhaps this is because the Bermuda Triangle is one of the few areas on Earth where the true North and Magnetic North lines up. The disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle didn’t really get the people’s attention until the 20th century. One instance
In Document D it states that Magellan and his crew came out of the strait on November 28th and did not take in provisions for three months and twenty days after that. This was due to the amount of time it took to get to the Pacific Ocean, all the crew had 3 times a day was hardtack, and some yellow bad smelling water. This lead several of the crew members mouths to become swollen that they were in agony when it came to eating. Also because of the sicknesses the crew got, it lead to a pretty big amount of them dying. This Document Clearly shows how Magellan was selfish for not going to land for food, which was an option.
He has the perfect inspiration for the poem “The Sea is History”; his own home, his island. Walcott understands perfectly what imperialism means because his island, just like many other places around the world, has endured the consequences of being oppressed by other nation. Even though his island is independent,
“My father took us to see the Sumerian cities,” Hadid introduced it to Jonathan Glancey of London’s Guardian newspaper. “Then we went by boar, and then on a smaller one made of reeds, to visit villages in the marshes. The beauty of the landscape—where sand, water, reeds, birds, buildings, and people all somehow flowed together—has never left me. I’m trying to discover—invent, I suppose—an architecture, and forms of urban planning, that do something of same thing in a contemporary way.” Before moving to London to attend the Architectural
