What significance of Bartholomew dais voyage in1487?
We need you to answer this question!
What date did Bartholomew Dais return from the cape of good hope?
Bartholomew Diaz rounded the Cape twice in his lifetime. He lived from 1450 to 1500 CE. As far as I know the exact date he returned from the Cape is not known, at least for his first voyage. He discovered the Cape of Good Hope in 1488, and then accompanied Vasco de Gama on another voyage in 1497. His return to Europe would be between 1488 and 1497. I would think that his return would be in the early 1490's, but you never know. However, these two dates should give you a decent time frame of when he would have returned. Of course, he perished off the Cape of Good Hope in 1500.

What is the difference between a dais and a podium?
A dais is generally a platform higher than floor level enabling people seated or standing on the dais to be seen by the rest of the people in the room, often upon which is set a "head table" and chairs. A podium is a raised platform (similar to dais). Strictly speaking, if one person is standing on a raised platform it's a podium, if there's more than one, it's a dais. Additionally, a 'lectern' is a desk or stand w/ a slanted top used by public speakers. The lectern is placed on the podium.

What is a dais?
A dais is simply a platform (typically raised) on which something or someone is placed so as to be easily viewed. Interestingly, the term is applied to platforms ranging from small wedding cake dais on which the bride and groom statuette is placed to a large platform on which persons are found who will be addressing a large audience. Landscaping makes use of a dais on which a statute or fountain or some such other decorative item is placed. It is also a family name and a type of tree. df, Calgary, AB.
