For instance, did the Chinese circumnavigate the globe and if so, what map did they use? Or those SE Asian Island cultures that decided to brave the Pacific on what were little more than rafts to reach Hawaii and the Americas.

I watched a show recently that had artifacts found on the Western coast of South America from SE Asian Seafaring cultures believed to be dated before Columbus. Also, I believe that there were other cultures that landed on the East Coast of North American long before Columbus. Namely the Rosecruseans (Not sure if i spelled that correctly) and the Vikings.
