What was the Age of Exploration? Discover what the Age of Exploration was all about!
Before the fifteenth century, European sailors were unsure what waited for them beyond their well-known travel routes around the Mediterranean Sea, so they kept within sight of land. But all of that changed after Prince Henry the Navigator of Portugal started sending ships down the coast in the hope of finding a sea route to India and Africa. This was the beginning of a giant leap toward understanding what the globe actually looked like. Certain European nations grew rich and powerful from the New World gold and lands they claimed, while advanced, long-standing civilizations like the Aztecs and Incas were destroyed in the cruelest of ways.
This book also features the fun black-and-white illustrations and engaging 16-page photo insert that readers have come love about the "What Was?" series! 112 pages, softcover. Grades 3-7.
