Soon after the arrival of an Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci in 1499, the Europeans quickly began making maps for their new project. They then began to send travelers to explore the new-found land. The British have had a monumental impact on our culture as we know it, in several ways. Most people would argue that the British were inhumane and forced their beliefs onto others, because they were known for claiming land and taking it as their own with no remorse. To some extent we can thank the British empire for showing what characteristics we do and do not want in the “New World”.
What came from Britain colonising countries all over the world? The British Empire was once regarded as ‘the empire on which the sun never sets’. Besides the significance this holds symbolically - in terms of the ‘we will never cease’ spirit, it also holds quite a literal truth because at one point in time, the British Empire was so well spread that the sun was always shining somewhere which Britain had conquered. Britain had a sizeable overseas military resulting in it being essentially effortless for the British to colonise a multitude of countries around the world, including but not limited to India, Canada, Papua New Guinea, areas of Africa and Australia. Britain became of higher wealth from all of this colonisation - profits gained in the early centuries came mostly from the trade of furs, tea and slaves.

Britain in the mid 1800’s was eager for expansion, as well as many products and resources that weren't available in their region at the time. Throughout Britain's history imperialism is shown everywhere. From taking land in the Americas, along with other European countries, to taking land in Asia and Africa, imperialism has always played a major role in the formation of the British empire. Many countries such as India fell victim to British imperialism, because of Britians want of resources. This British yearning of resources caused Britain to take over India, leading into a series of events until Indian nationalism occurred known as the Sepoy Mutiny.
The British Empire profited from slavery in the eighteenth century, but fought to abolish slavery in the nineteenth century. For many people, the British Empire meant loss of lands, discrimination and prejudice. Such a big empire had lots of everlasting impacts; a lot of them positive. The British Empire took science and technology across many parts of the world. They built railways, bridges and canals that helped improve communications in other territories.
The imperial British thought that their influence on Indian society was furthering the evolution of the people. The growing authority of British was slowly rotating India into an oversea empire and some of the practices were having shocking effects on the welfare of millions of Indians. Since there were no recognized guidelines for working conditions, pay or work time, many Indians worked many hours in harsh situations with little or no food. This flashed one of the largest famines in world history. Even though the Indians shaped plenty of food to support their country, it was all sitting
But at this moment, I would like to briefly discuss the positive effects that British colonialism brought to India. First, Britain completely destroyed some Indian feudal societies and customs, which helped to promote the development of India’s modernization. Secondly, Britain established a model of Western capitalist society in India, thus laying the foundation for India’s economic development and making a great progress in Indian society. Overall, the British influence on Indian society was not only superficial, but a powerful impact on Indian’s traditional social structures and values. In other words, Britain changed the Indian civilization with western civilization and transformed the Indian society with the Western system.
The British, however, had a positive social impact on India because the British revolutionized Indian society, and got rid of many negative social concepts that the Indians went by. Under British rule, Indians politically suffered. The army, government, and police force, was all favored towards the British, and they passed laws that worked against the Indians, like the Rowlatt Act. The Indians were negatively impacted economically. This was because, the British ruined their lands, by stripping their forests and forcing them to grow cash crops.
