Chapter one (Lecture Notes) Pre-history 1492 Life started in Africa (Best guess) Life was nomadic, so life from Africa wandered into Europe (land bridge from Africa to Europe) North Amercian Inhabitants were called native Americans The eastern Indians were more agricultural based whereas the western Indians were more into hunting and raiding. Eastern and western Indians each had their own languages, and while they created colonies they never joined forces. Was Columbus the first European to enter North America? NO Vikings came from Scandinavia and invaded. They were never credited with arriving to North America first because they never wrote it down and recorded their arrival. Columbus later came in search of spices (cinnamon, pepper, cloves, and nutmeg) Europeans discovered spices during the Crusades (the holy wars against the Muslims) The pope recruited militia by promising heaven to those who fought for them and died in the war despite how bad of a person they may have been. The Silk road was a series of routes that made trading a lot easier and granted easier access to materials around the world. Why did it take until 1492 to explore? Portugal’s king decided to open a shipbuilding school which was the beginnings of Columbus being able to set sail. He wanted to find a route to India that made it so he could avoid paying Italy for the same products. He used a sextant to navigate (a tool that uses the position of the stars and the horizon to help navigate the ocean) He was funded by Spain and In all made 4 trips to “India” (Americas) the Columbian exchange took place and diseases from the old world were brought to the new world as well as new spices, animals, and materials. Europe was disease ridden and had built up a tolerance to horrible illnesses, but when the Indians caught the diseases, they had never been exposed to them so about 90% of the population was wiped out. 1493
