There were First Nations settlements already there, and lots of clean land ( meaning lots of nature that was unharmed).
In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue (he sailed in a little over a month I believe because he sailed along the trade winds.)
Who created the map of the world that led Columbus to believe Asia could be reached by sailing west from the coast of Africa?
Ptolemy created the map of the world that led Columbus to believeAsia could be reached by sailing west from the coast of Africa. Itbecame the best existing map of the world.
Because... the map in his time was wrong (but only in scale): China was thought to be farther east than it was, the Americas were not on the maps the combined Atlantic and Pacific was thought to be much narrower than they are.
When Columbus landed in the New World, he landed on islands off the SE coast of North America, including several islands of the Caribbean such as Hispaniola.
Probably, but some people think he didn't, we don't know for sure so, I'd say he did.
He didn't, because he did not understand that he had come across a new world. He thought he had arrived at China or part of the Indes.
Christopher Colombus was looking for a way to travel over theAtlantic to trade with China. The discovery of the New World wasaccidental. He was sent with the respects and sponsors of QueenIsabella and King Ferdinand.
No, that is a fable. The people of his time knew the world wasn't flat.
\nIt is said that he stopped in Galway, in Ireland - but there is no proof of this

Whn Christopher Colombus landed in the New World, the frist thing he did was plant the Spanish flag into the beach.
Indigenous Peoples have inherited, what is now known as North, Central, & South America, these lands for tens of thousands of years. Long before any white settlers arrived, millions of people lived in thousands of thriving cities.
No, it was named after Amerigo Vespucci, an Italian serving the country of Portugal during the age of exploration. He sailed up and down the coast and claimed that it was not Asia as it had been thought, but rather a new world. A German cartographer later partially mapped and named the "new world" a…fter Vespucci. Till this day, the area he explored is known as the Americas, and includes South, Central, and North America.. Yes, it was named after Columbus was named...and it was named (as the first answer states) in honor of Mr. Vespucci. By the same token, I'll bet you were also named after Columbus. ( Full Answer )
Shortly after Columbus arrived home after his final voyage, Queen Isabella died (on November 26, 1504). Earlier, Columbus had lost his titles of governor and viceroy. Over the next year and a half until his death, Columbus tried to regain his lost titles of governor and viceroy, as well as financial… benefits from the Indies. In May 1505 King Ferdinand finally gave Columbus a hearing in which he was refused the return of his titles. He did however win his financial claims. Columbus's share was 2 percent of the riches of the Indies, quite a lot. This gave the Columbus family a lifestyle equal to that of the richest nobility in Spain. On May 20, 1506 Columbus died.

because he would have been given tons of credit and wanted to find a new faster trade route to Asia
Christopher Columbus sailed to the New World in his first voyage in1492. He explored parts of Cuba, the Canary Islands, parts ofCentral America, and the Bahamas at that time.
He established Spanish Colonies in the Caribbean and opened the door for more exploration and eventual mass colonization
He believed that he had reached India, so he called the (now Bahamas) West Indies.
Answer . Columbus sent himself. He wanted to find a new route to Asia. Answer . King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain provided the financial backing for his trip.
The first person that we know of was Christopher Columbus. But really the first people to reach North America were the settlers from Asia.
Christopher Columbus, and all explorers of that day, were terrible navigators. To be honest, he didn't have a clue where he was going. He was trying to find a quick route to India. That's why Native Americans, and Native Canadians are called "Indians" - he thought he was in India. So to ask why …did he colonize the new world? The answer is he didn't. He did it by accident. ( Full Answer )
Since he landed in the Bahamas he saw a tropical island with Native Americans living on it. They were rather poor and didn't have the gold he was looking for. They gave him small items they had made and parrots.
Christopher Columbus arrived at the New World on October 12, 1492 after having crossed the Atlantic Ocean on the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria.
Although some discrepancies were noted between the Far East and the lands he found, Columbus apparently remained unaware of the true nature of the Americas, at least not until shortly before his death in 1506. Both Columbus and the other explorers of South America realized that it, at least, was a …continent unknown to Europe. Amerigo Vespucci, who mapped South America for Portugal between 1499 and 1504, identified the lands as separate from Spanish claims to the north. ( Full Answer )
Christropher Colombus , was on a conquest to find Japan and had actually gone westwards from Spain , and what he discovered was actually Cuba in the West Indies and he had thought that Cuba was the Indian name for Japan.
Because, contrary to common believe, medieval scholars were well aware of the fact that the earth is a sphere. Columbus disagreed with the scientific community concerning the size of earth, that's why he thought it possible to actually reach India by sailing West using contemporary ships. .
more than likely by noticing that the moon, sun and other stars were round. or how the horizon changed the higher you are elevated.
His voyages were made to: prove that the world was spherical find a new trade route obtain wealth
One Perspective: Yes, I do believe. Another Perspective: The state of the world appears to be too chaotic to be described as having any kind of new order. If there is a New World Order, it does not seem to be very successful. A Final Thought: Despite differing perspectives, facts are f…acts, and belief without concrete, irrefutable evidence can never be more than that; belief is not fact. ( Full Answer )
John killed himself at the end of the novel because he lost everything he believed in. He took soma, and participated in non-discriminatory sex (orgy-porgy). He fell into the World State society, and forgot all his morals, therefore he committed suicide.
Columbus explored the islands of the Caribbean, and the coast of central and South America. But most of his efforts were concentrated on the islands around Hispaniola and Cuba, which he believed were part of "Antilla", a hypothetical landmass near the East Indies (China and Japan).
He was sent from Europe to find a shorter route to Asia. Since he thought the world was round he headed west. Then he reached land thinking it was the indies. So he called them Indians. They were really Native Americans because he did not find the indies. He really found North America which was the …New World, it was called the New World because it was unknow to the people.

He is disappointed with the world state and thinks he is filthy from being at such a grotesque place. He whips himself in order to cleanse himself. New Answer (11 May, 2012) - He tortures himself because he feels that is the only way to show himself as being human, to feel pain, to be an indiv…idual, to bleed and not take soma. If I remember right, he also does it when he gets aroused from thinking of Lenina, so it is also to say no to the temptation, the temptation that all the Alpha-Plus' do. The main thing is to interpret it how you want, but this is what I gathered when I read it. ~ DK ( Full Answer )
Well he was mostly interested in how they acted and how they lived but he was also interested in there survial ways like farming and making teepees. He wasn't impressed at all, they were barbarians.
The Native Americans. They were there WAY before Columbus! There generations were passed from they Inuit's, to they Eskimo's, to the plains Indians to the American Indians or something like that! So Columbus was TECHNACALY NOT the first one in America! We need to STOP giving Columbus SO much credit!… either way, hope they answer helps! ( Full Answer )
Not at all he believed that he had landed in west india all his life, despite being proven wrong by amerigo vaspuchi (thus the names north and south america, instead of north and south columbia).
Back then thay only thought that they lived in what is half of the world. So Christopher Columbus thought that by sailing west he could reach asia in less than three weeks.
he allowed the people to have a better life on the islands or villages he found.
i know but in not gonna tell you cuz i know ur just cheating on hw or something. if ur not 2 bad.
Christopher Columbus was a genoese navigator, who was involved with the idea of sailing westward to find India. His calculations was based on the best maps available, those of Toscanelli.
more like an exploiter because many had come upon the new world way before Columbus. How else did the Native Americans get here?
He went west to go east. He had no idea that North America stood between him an Asia, so he figured that if he went west he could reach Asia. He also kept returning to the same islands, and he died broke and very unpopular in Spain.
Columbus "discovered" a new world that we now call the westernhemisphere. Europeans did not know that any land was positionedbetween Europe and Asia on the route west wound the world. Columbuslanded on several islands in the Caribbean, but the follow up tthat lead to the European discovery and conqu…est of North America,Central America, and South America, as well as the adjacentislands.

Because they thought the earth was flat and that where Columbus said it was they thought that wasn't even a place.
the queen formed colonies and now we are here. if Christopher never discovered america we would be talking like british people
Very little.His impact was very minor if he had any. In his life he was considered a failure. Not only didn't he find a water route to Asia, but he also did not bring home riches, gold, or spices. As far as the crown was concerned he didn't meet the demands of his contract with them. When he died he… was broke, sick, and was a disgrace. His son files a suit against the crown to try to claim some of the contract in his father's name after his death. ( Full Answer )
When we first met John, he was innocent and accepting of everything. He then went back with Lenina and Bernard to the "Brave New World." Here he discovered how terrible the new world is and ran away to live at the lighthouse. He then preceded to live as he did before the city (growing crops naturall…y and not eating processed food, ect.). He also beat himself to atone for his sins. People began to show up and watch this beating happen. One thing led to another and an "Orgy- Porgy" broke out and John participated. When he woke, he realized what he had done and hung himself. My best guess is that he wanted to still be good, but finding no other way to redeem himself, he took his life. Sorry for the long answer. ( Full Answer )
One thing he thought was that he had reached Asia or the east. This is the reason the natives were called Indians.
European countries began to colonize the relativelysparsely-populated lands of North and South America. These includedSpain, Portugal, England, France, and the Netherlands, and to amuch lesser extent Russia and Prussia (Germany). The technologydeveloped during the Renaissance made the colonial count…riesmilitarily superior to the tribes of the Americas, and the nativeshad no resistance to many European diseases. This resulted in thenew American civilizations becoming essentially a mirror of thecivilizations of Europe, to the detriment of the originalpopulations. ( Full Answer )
