More About this Product
Columbus seeking the eastern coast of India, Cabot a water passage to the Asian continent, Prince Henry a quick route along the coast of Africa -- these destinations defined the age of exploration as the 1500's dawned in Europe. Three major cultures, the Native Americans, the Europeans and the Africans were on the verge of encounter. This program shows how these bold explorers were the catalysts for European control of the New World and demonstrates the economic impact of their journeys. Historical figures also include Leif Ericson, Hernando Cortes, Francisco Pizarro, Ponce de Leon and Panfilo de Narvaez.
