1 The Age of European Explorations

2 By the 1400 s Europeans were in contact with Africans, Asians, and Americans. This is known as the GLOBAL AGE.

3 Wherever Europeans went, they brought their culture and beliefs to the lands they explored.

4 Vocabulary: Global Exploration Exploring unknown regions of the world! Cartographers created maps of the worlds they explored.

5 Vocabulary: Armada Group of ships They sailed around the world in armadas, because a group of ships is safer than traveling with one lone ship.

6 Currents and Winds Before maps sailors had a difficult time navigating the sea. Currents or Winds could take their ship places they didn t know existed and the ship could be lost at sea forever!

7 Europeans wanted to travel to ASIA for goods.

8 The Silk Road Marco Polo traveled the Silk Road. At the time, the Silk Road was controlled by the Mongol Empire. When the Mongol Empire collapsed, the Silk Road was no longer safe to travel. YIKES!!! How will Europeans get their silks and spices???

9 The OTTOMAN EMPIRE Europeans couldn t travel across land because the OTTOMAN EMPIRE would attack them.

10 All Water Route to Asia! PORTUGAL lead the way in finding an all water route to ASIA!

11 Important People:

13 Prince Henry Portuguese Never made an ocean voyage. Sent sailors to the coast of West Africa where they discovered sugar cane Took over the Azores, Madeira Islands, and Cape Verde Islands. START OF THE PORTUGUESE EMPIRE!

18 Christopher Columbus Italian man Wanted to find a route to Asia by crossing the ATLANTIC OCEAN.

19 Christopher Columbus Was given money from the king and queen of Spain (Ferdinand and Isabella). They wanted to spread Christianity and expand trade. Columbus sailed the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria. Found North America, not Asia.

20 Pope Alexander VI Portugal wanted more land. So, Pope Alexander VI drew a LINE OF DEMARCATION, an imaginary line running down the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and stated that Spain was to control all the lands west of the line and Portugal was to control lands east of the land.

21 Line of Demarcation

22 Pedro Alvares Cabral From Portugal Discovered Brazil Remember, they speak Portuguese in Brazil.

23 Ferdinand Magellan Portuguese Sailed around the tip of South America Sailed for SPAIN Reached Asia CIRCUMNAVIGATED THE GLOBE: circled the globe.

26 European Conquistadors A treaty divided the world between Spain and Portugal, but the countries ignored the treaty and joined the race for land and wealth!

27 Francisco Pizarro Followed Cortez Conquered the Incas!

28 MORE EXPLORERS! The DUTCH sent explorers to the INDIAN OCEAN. ENGLAND, FRANCE, and the NETHERLANDS sent explorers to North America

29 Captain James Cook Claimed Australia for Great Britain Great Britain also claimed New Zealand.

32 Events that lead up the Global Age

33 #1. The Crusades European men went to the Holy Land to fight the Muslims. They saw many new and wonderful places. Their stories and souvenirs made other people want to travel!

34 #2. MONEY Merchants wanted to travel and get spices and silks to sell for profit. Goods would travel from Asia, to the Middle East, and sometimes to Italy. Each time the goods traded hands the price went up. So, merchants wanted to get the goods directly to save them money and increase their profit!

35 #3 Inventions Before the 1400 s, technology wouldn t allow sailors to make long voyages. Four Inventions made exploration possible!
