Introduction

 European Exploration

 

Men from all over Europe flocked to the harbors to board ships for the chance to explore new lands past the endless expanse of the Ocean.  For God, Glory, and Gold! These sailors journied far to claim lands for their country and find riches beyond imagination.  Who will reign supreme over the high seas...Spain, England, Portugal, the Netherlands, or France?   What lands will they find?  What cultures will they discover?  How will they effect these cultures?  Historians depend on evidence collected in the form of artifacts created during the travels of the European explorers.
