After 1415, European mariners made voyages across the seas toward east and west. By 1519, Magellan had circumnavigated the globe. Others set out in search of wealth, adventure and fame.
If you had to put all of these changes into one sentence, what would it be?
You might say, by 1500 CE, the world was connected, right?
But wait! You still haven’t said much about the Americas!
Well…the Americas and Afroeurasia were not yet permanently linked together.
…not until 1492…
When Columbus sailed the ocean blue…
So, by 1492, European mariners set out on trans-oceanic voyages to the Americas.
Those voyages linked the Americas with Afroeurasia for the first time since the migrations of people over 13,000 years earlier!
It had to happen sooner or later!
Cultural exchange in Afroeurasia before 1500 CE resulted in the technologies that made transoceanic voyages possible.
Is that why people from Afroeurasia discovered the Americas, and not the opposite?
Slide #13 Student notes:
