Page from the Dresden Codex, Maya manuscript

Page from the Dresden Codex, Maya manuscript. Chromolithograph of a page showing a section of a tonalamatl, a sacred season of 260 days. The god Quetalcoatl is depicted several times, including ferrying a woman (centre) and with an axe (bottom left). The original manuscript was probably produced in the first half of the 13th century, and contains tables predicting astronomical occurrences with great accuracy. It was sent to Europe after the Spanish conquest of Central America, and is today one of only four Mayan codices known to have survived

Map of Magellans round the world voyage, 1519-1521 Featured July Image

Map of Magellans round the world voyage, 1519-1521

Map of Magellan's round the world voyage, 1519-1521. A Portuguese-born navigator sponsored by Spain, Ferdinand Magellan (c1480-1521) led the expedition that made the first circumnavigation of the globe. This Mercator projection map shows the route taken, which included the first passage through the straits at the southern tip of South America that bear Magellan's name. Magellan did not himself complete the voyage, as he was killed in the Philippines in a clash with natives. Of the five ships that set out from Spain in 1519, only one, the Victoria, commanded by Juan de Elcano, returned safely. From the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris
