Excerpt

ja o epitaphio do immortal infante D. Henrique.

Proseguem os descobrimentos. Pedro de Cintra chega ao cabo de Santa Maria. Pedro Escobar e João de Santarem vão á Mina. Deixa Lopo Gonçalves o seu nome ao cabo que avista. Fernando Pó descobre as ilhas de S. Thomé, do Principe, de Anno Bom, e a Formosa, que depois tomou o seu nome. Manda el-rei D. João II a Diogo de Azambuja que levante o castello de S. Jorge da Mina, e expede Diogo Cam para proseguir no reconhecimento da costa. Em 1484 acerta Diogo Cam com o rio Zaire, desembarca na margem do sul, e, tomando conta das terras adjacentes em nome do rei de Portugal, alli assenta um padrão em signal da sua passagem, e para assegurar no futuro a posse que hoje nos pretendem contestar. Ainda em 1859, passados 375 annos, tivemos o gosto de ver e tocar o pouco que existia de tão valiosa reliquia. Seguiu Diogo Cam para o sul, e no cabo Negro levantou padrão egual ao que deixára no Zaire

As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick.

As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
