Chinese 'claims' now quite well backed[edit]

See recent additions. Elevate to non-'claim' suffixed section title? prat (talk) 18:19, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

I can't see why. What is there that's so convincing about Chinese claims to have visited North America? And the Cape Espenberg material is in the wrong place as no one has claimed that this involved the Chinese visiting North America. Doug Weller talk 18:27, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
Thinking more about it, and the lead: " visits to, the discovery of or interaction with the Americas and/or indigenous peoples of the Americas by people from Africa, Asia, Europe, or Oceania", nothing in the Cape Espenberg material seems to say that Asians visited North America, so I'm going to remove it tomorrow unless someone shows I'm wrong. We know there was trade and share culture over the Bering Strait during the last 4000 or so years. See this discussion in the archives. Doug Weller talk 14:48, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Ancient Judean Jews[edit]

Why is this listed under Europe instead of Middle East? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:27, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
