Magellan with Active Minds

Ferdinand Magellan was one of the most significant explorers of all time. Five hundred years ago, his three-year voyage (which he did not survive) was the first successful circumnavigation of the globe.  What ensued was the expansion of European exploration and colonization of Asia, Africa and the Americas: the so-called Age of Discovery. Magellan’s life represents a fascinating case study of this pivotal moment in world history. Join Active Minds as we discuss the historical context, life, and legacy of one of the most influential navigators ever.

*This program will be in-person at the library.
