      Lack of any reason, communications logistics, lack of the navigational skills/equipment and good enough ships for month long voyages over deep ocean. Shockingly not a lot of men want to be away from home, women, land, and food for the chance at finding some far away land disconnected from any support system or help

        this. Life on a ship in the age of discovery must have been rough.

        >veneti
        Sail powered means jack shit. Egyptians had sails in 1400bc. It is more about logistics, navigational knowledge, and ship construction. You could paddle across the Atlantic if your ship is built right. Ships of that age were just not up to deep sea weather and currents. Iron age people trying to cross the Atlantic would be like a rat floating on wood to a pacific island. It could happen but for anyone who makes it hundreds will fail and good luck getting back

          no see Caesar reports their ships were more than able to withstand the conditions of the open Atlantic

          the maritime traditions of Brittany go back to the neolithic when farming was an option but fish still made up most of their diet and they were aligning networks of megaliths astrologically to use as navigational aides, Carnac as an example

      They did scrotebrain multiple times in the Mesolithic, in the Greek era, then in the Roman era, then the Vikings then the Spaniards etc

      In fact the native inhabitants of America were genetically european for a long time due to these migrations, particularly the Mesolithic migrations

        The fact that whites lived in America has been known for a long time, since the 16th century, it has been only in the past 70 years that the zog media has been pushing for Indian rights and misinformation to disenfranchise whites

          Only the bay of jars in brazil is credible in any way. Everything else has no proof at all.

        Yeah sis they just walked over broken pieces of floating ice for 2 months with nothing to eat or make fires with.
        >In fact the native inhabitants of America were genetically european for a long time due to these migrations
        How come genetics studies done on ancient Native Ameircans on the east coast show the opposite?

          they supposedly followed the seals they were hunting along pack ice in the boats they had, but this is news to you since you know nothing about the speculation or anything about the cultures involved

            The American Discovery of Europe
            Jack D. Forbes

            The American Discovery of Europe investigates the voyages of America’s Native peoples to the European continent before Columbus’s 1492 arrival in the "New World." The product of over twenty years of exhaustive research in libraries throughout Europe and the United States, the book paints a clear picture of the diverse and complex societies that constituted the Americas before 1492 and reveals the surprising Native American involvements in maritime trade and exploration. Starting with an encounter by Columbus himself with mysterious people who had apparently been carried across the Atlantic on favorable currents, Jack D. Forbes proceeds to explore the seagoing expertise of early Americans, theories of ancient migrations, the evidence for human origins in the Americas, and other early visitors coming from Europe to America, including the Norse. The provocative, extensively documented, and heartfelt conclusions of The American Discovery of Europe present an open challenge to received historical wisdom.

      Why would they need to?

      The main reason why the Atlantic was crossed by Europeans was to trade with Asian entities. The Romans had no need for that since half of their freaking empire was in Asia.

      Romans traded directly with Pajeets ffs.

        No real proofs
        They did not know where they went
        They were sailing from Iceland, Groenland, like going near the coast.

        No real ocean navigation. Ancient cultures always sailed in front of the coast.

      Why didn’t the vikings find better places to live? All they had to do was sail a little further south. Do they like dying in the snow?
