In 1494, Christopher Columbus made a second journey to the Americasthis time with more ships, more men, and a grander mission. His goal was to build the first European colony in the New World. But in just a few short years, this settlement would perish with one-fifth of its inhabitants dead, at least six ships sunk in the bay, and the legacy of Columbus permanently marred. What happened at this ill-fated settlement remains a mystery 500 years later.
Now, National Geographic joins teams of archaeologists as they journey to uncover new evidence of the failure of America’s first European city, La Isabela.
Bonus program: Columbus Landfall.
