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.


THE DISCOVERY

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.
