We need a new word for "discovery".

Something that says, "Hey, white industrial-age people just realized that there's this really cool thing over here that other people have known about for eons..."

But holy shit... I love it when old art depicts landscapes, flora, and fauna that are gone... I feel more connected to ancient human history when I see these drawings...
