I AM Pero da Covilham, Portuguese explorer and spy. In 1489, disguised as a Moorish merchant I determine the source of the spices is the Moluccas Islands. Returning to Cairo I learn that my partner, Afonso da Paiva has died in Africa. My secret report to King John confirms discovery of a route around Africa and leads to the Portuguese dominance of trade in the East Indies!
