Phoenicians might be the first to discover America

Did you know that recently there is a theory stating that the Phoenicians were the first people who landed on the shores of America, and that is due to the effort of former Royal Navy officer Philip Beale who sailed a replica Phoenician boat across the Atlantic, just to prove that Phoenician boats were able to do that voyage, and this is how the theory became more plausible.
