Maybe *bad* news for you, but here is something I read on Teletext 
last weekend: According to the British librarian Frances Wood, 
Marco Polo has never been in China. He *made up* his stories about his 
time there.

The story also told that Columbus didn't discover America, but only 
an island. But I think that's not a new fact.
