         Subject: an historical example?

I am looking for a good historical fit for a kind of person I am
trying to describe: an explorer with keen ethnographic and scientific
interests and abilities who was also a kind of merchant-trader,
exchanging goods with those he visited. To be just right, this
explorer will have had to visit many different sorts of people,
though perhaps all of them in one particular part of the world.

Any suggestions?
