THE AGE OF EXPLORATION
In the late 1400's came an era known as the age of exploration. In this age it was that Christopher
Columbus this covered america a.k.a the new world. When this happened people became curious and
anxious to see the new world. The result of this was that soon many people came to america hoping
to start new lives. this passage will be on why, when, and the effect they had on the new world.
Back the in those times people believed that the world was flat. they thought that if you kept going you
would eventually reach the edge of the world and fall of into a pit of sea monsters. Christopher
Columbus changed that though. With the exploration he made it made people realize that the world
was not flat. The original plan was for him to find a new trading route to asia of course he didn't expect
to discover america. Columbus believed that if he went straight he would end up in asia. though what
he didn't know was that america was in between euro[pe and asia. what a surprise to land on the
shores of america.
THE TRADE WITH THE NATIVE AMERICANS
On america living there were the native americans. The english traded with them for many things.
such as, if the native americans gave the british animal pelts they would receive iron kettles and
nails in return. Of course not always was trading a good thing. one of the things that the english traded
with them although unwillingly was disease. since the was new to them this killed the native
americans. this explains that sometimes trade isn't good.
THE IMPACT OF THE NEW WORLD
COLONIZATION I EUROPE AFFAIRS
European colonization had big impacts on the new world. This was in especially for the indians.
because of this they lost land, people, food and self-sufficiency with the intrusion of the british. They
felt that the native americans were a primitive race and what didn't help was that the indians treated
the english as gods. in this way was that the native americans lost rights and freedom.
