The article below is copied from Forbidden TV. The Chinese expedition of 1491 played a role in the west coast of Canada. Chinese coins have been found in the Broughton Group, north-east of Vancouver Island, that have been dated at 600 years old. Steel has been used by natives on the coast for at least 500 years. Many people are convinced that some of that steel was brought here by the Chinese.
On March 8, 1421, the largest fleet
the world had ever seen sailed from
its base in China. The ships, huge
junks nearly five hundred feet long
and built from the finest teak, were
under the command of Emperor Zhu Di's
loyal eunuch admirals. Their mission
was "to proceed all the way to the end
of the Earth to collect tribute from the
barbarians beyond the seas" and unite
the whole world in Confucian harmony.
Their journey would last more than
two years and circle the globe.
When they returned in October 1423,
the emperor had fallen, leaving China
in political and economic chaos.
The great ships, now considered frivolous,
were left to rot at their moorings.
This fascinating documentary examines
the mystery surrounding the sailing exploits
of the legendary Admiral Zhen He and his
30-year command of a gigantic Ming fleet.
The Chinese court burned all records of
Admiral Zhen He's daring voyages and
achievements, and unwittingly created a
mystery that tantalizes the world 500
