This program studies European exploration and conquest, beginning in the late Middle Ages and leading up to the emergence of the major colonial powers. Byzantium's fall in 1453 sets the narrative stage for Henry the Navigator's massive initiative to find new trade routes into Asia. Henry's nautical school at Sagres is described in detail, along with the voyages of Columbus, Gil Eannes, Vasco da Gama, and contemporaneous Arabian and Chinese adventurers. This program depicts an age of radical technological innovation, atrocities for God and gold, and varying awareness of the world's true size and shape.
