The original reports of 199 expeditions translated directly in German. WOW. Including a critical analysis of the reports and links to names, places, archeological evidence etc. Hennig's exhaustive work has - as far as I know - never been repeated by anyone. Nor in German nor in any other language.
I have a dream. We - species 'homo sapiens' on planet Earth - need someone who refreshes Hennig's work. Are you able to do the job? Do you want to spend your money to let someone else do this job? Fund?
- Collecting original reports of all "main" expeditions before 1492. Did Hennig miss main expeditions?
- Translation of reports in English
- Asessment of reports. Including pick out relevant archeological, historical etc evidence
- Publishing on internet and linked to Wikipedia
The wisdom of the crowd is OK but on this we need an editor. You?
