Potter's Wax Museum- John Cabot

(c. 1450 – c. 1499)

Here is Italian explorer Giovanni Caboto from Potter's Wax Museum. Caboto sailed for England in the fifteenth Century, where he is known as John Cabot. He sailed a northern route to the new world, reaching Greenland and Newfoundland. His voyages helped give England a claim to North America.

I love the Potter Wax Museum website. I like the waxwork of John Cabot. He is a much better Italian Genoese explorer than Christopher Columbus. He discovered North America and Columbus didn't.
