When Worlds Collide: The Untold Story of the Americas After Columbus

I really loved the PBS documentary When Worlds Collide: The Untold Story of the Americas After Columbus, which aired last night. There wasn’t much presented that I didn’t already know from Anthropology and Religious Studies classes, but it was a very nice presentation.

I particularly appreciated the fact that they showed the vast influences New World foods had on the Old World: maize, potatoes, tomatoes, turkeys, chocolate, sugar, etc etc.

You can watch the entire show on the PBS website.
