European explorers who 'discovered' parts of the globe unknown to them were in most cases of course visiting other people's homes. Their maps brought knowledge of these places to a literate European public but often relied at least in part on information provided by local people. Our speaker explores these themes with respect to Amazonia and the British explorer Percy Harrison Fawcett who mysteriously disappeared in the Amazon forest while looking for the lost city of Z which he was convinced lay hidden there.
