THE GRAND TURK LANDING
Where Columbus First Set Foot in the Americas
Report of the Following Columbus Expedition
02-17 November 2014
Three strands of mutually reinforcing evidence— drawn from records of Christopher Columbus’s maiden Atlantic crossing, eyewitness testimonies and other contemporary references to the place of his first landing, and his log of the ensuing exploration of the Lucayan Islands— each and the three very powerfully together point to Grand Turk [in today’s Turks and Caicos Islands] as his initial landing in the Americas. A wide range of observations of and by land and sea by the Following Columbus Expedition in November 2014 validate this historic conclusion, which is further sustained by modern computer simulations.
