What is one way africans influenced europeans during the age of exploration?
What expanded when natives were forced to work for the europeans and Africans started to be shipped over to the new world during the middle ages?
Because during the industrial revolution period the only place the Europeans could get cheap labour was from Africa. America was at the time a "new land" that the Europeans had discovered and were eager to exploit the resources it had. Hence the Africans were brought to America to work in the "new land" and provide the Europeans with resources for their industries. I hope I've given you a rough sketch of how its all connected.
During the middle ages. Europeans had done little exploring beyond their own shores.Except for the Holy land, they they had very little knowledge of. or interest in, other lands. During the Reinassance , however, Europeans became curious about the world around them. This lead to an interest in science and technology. It also led to the age of Exploration. Hope i helped..
The period is characterized as a time when Europeans began exploring the world by sea in search of trading partners, new goods, and new trade routes. In addition, some explorers set sail to simply learn more about the world. Whatever their reasons though, the information gained during the Age of Exploration significantly helped in the advancement of geographic knowledge.
What are three reasons why enslaved Africans were brought to the Caribbean by Europeans during the 1500's?
Africans were a cheap source of labour (because it was cheaper to ship them from Africa). Africans were physically fit and were suited for the sugar estates and they were more immune to tropical diseases. Africans were closer to the Caribbean than Europe, where there were some slaves on the Iberian Peninsula.
Europeans main motives for voyages of exploration occurred during the Renaissance Era and included building of empires, diffusion of Christianity, ever-increasing opportunities fort trade and new markets, greater power than before, and material good and riches that included gold, spices, silver and slaves.
Im not completely sure WHEN you are talking about but I am assuming you mean during the Age of Discovery in which western society was built, involving the Europeans exploration and mapping of the world, the major of these was of course the Americas. A great number of Europeans colonised the Americas, but mainly the Spanish, British, French and Portuguese, but also to a lesser extent the Dutch and the Russians.
Europeans captured slaves in Africa by indirect means. After establishing trade with coastal societies, the Europeans would convert and enlist the local populace to raid the interior of Africa. These raids would capture, usually, the enemies of the enlisted Africans, but given the right price the raiders were not afraid of capturing friendly tribesmen as well.
Settlements started using slaves to give Africans a better life. Many Africans at the time lived under brutal warlords, who would often sacrifice people to the gods. The Europeans were appalled at this practice, so they took as many Africans as they could to the New World with them. The Europeans soon realized that they could not afford to continue feeding the Africans, and the Africans did not understand European culture enough to feed themselves…
The history of Europeans performing slave trade activities last many centuries. During this period, tribal Chieftains and other Africans often took manufactured goods from Europeans in exchange for slaves. Often gold and silver were also precious metals used to buy slaves. Some slaves, however, were actually kidnapped. There is no precise record of what was bartered or funds paid to obtain slaves.
Most African-Americans can trace their roots to slavery. In the old times, slavery was abundant in the Southern US and Europe. This is because Africans were mainly sold by their old people to the Europeans for money, weapons, or other trading items. The Europeans then used these people as slaves for labor, and the tradition carried to the US. However, when slavery was abolished in Europe, it was still popular in the US, and remained…
Portugal's African exploration during the fifteenth century broke the monoply of the old Mediterranean trade with the East, dramatically expanded the world known to Europeans, established a network of Portuguese outpostin Africa and Asia,and developed methods of sailing the high seas that Columbus employed on his revolutionary voyage west.
During the Age of Exploration mapmakers used cartography to map the world. They found new trade routes to Asia, which helped trade to flourish. The Age of Exploration vastly increased Europeans' knowledge of the world. They established new trade routes between India and Portugal, which helped these two countries to become wealthier. The Age of Exploration helped Spain to rapidly expand foreign trade, which helped these countries to flourish. The voyages of Columbus and Magellan…
