The Explorer - Journey 1: Hanno the Navigator, 455BC - Africa / Mediterranean

The Story: Pillars of Hercules

The Explorer - Journey 2: Hanno the Navigator 455BC - Africa / West Coast

The Story: Rio de Oro

Join Hanno the Navigator in 455 BC, in Carthage, as he waits for the leaving ceremony to end with the prayers to the god Baal (rider of the clouds and god of thunder storms). He then leads his 60 galley fleet into the Mediterranean and around the west coast of Africa. Leaving colonists along the bulge of Africa, he eventually turns east into the Gulf of Guinea. Dense jungles seem to meet the water’s edge like a wall. At night, the sound of native drums and warrior chants, keep the vessels off shore. Finally, they approach a great mountain spewing molten rock, flames and sulphurous gases into the air. They turn for home rather than face the ‘gates of Hades’.
These 2 Journeys of Discovery include:
  • the story (in both Script and Arial fonts), with ‘outside the box’ word clues and without clues for early readers
  • an educator information page with anticipated learning outcomes
  • a world projection map, a telescoped map of the explored area and a compass
  • the clues and solution
  • a single list of journeys and their explorers

The Journeys are all:

  • in greyscale.
  • PDF downloadable.

Our resources encourage interaction and fun while introducing locations, weather/social conditions, cities, countries, seas, oceans and continents. They demonstrate the use of compass points for direction and the use of longitude and latitude ... your students won’t even know it’s a lesson. In addition, they provide a portrayal of an actual historic journey - please note that the identity of the explorer is not mentioned in the story as it is part of the solution for you to share with your class!
