Around the year 750 C.E., the trade in the Indian ocean began to flourish and have expanded use. In Africa, trade consisted of ivory, gold, and iron. In China, there was earthenware. But the main trade in the Indian ocean were various textiles such as silk and other cloths, with these being traded by Indian sailors and others around the world. The trade
Indian Ocean Trade: The Indian Ocean trade routes ran through Southeast Asia, India, Arabia, and East Africa. During the classical era it involved the Mauryan Empire, the Han Dynasty, and the Achaemenid Empire. Coastal areas used dhows, a type of boat, to maneuver the seasonal monsoon winds, and after the domestication of camels trade goods such as silk, porcelain, spices, slaves, incense and ivory became popular. The Indian Ocean trade routes also influenced the spread of religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
The Indian Ocean and Trans-Saharan trade routes shared products like textiles and ivory, enhanced the spread of Islam, and spread disease; but, due to the Indian Ocean’s trading style, spread diseases much quicker and spread a plethora of different
During the 15th and 16th centuries, leaders of a few European nations sent expeditions out in the hope that explorers would find great wealth and vast undiscovered lands. The Portuguese were the earliest participants in this “Age of Discovery.” Starting in about 1420, Portuguese ships sailed the African coast, carrying spices, gold, slaves and other goods from Africa and Asia to Europe.
The Empires of Ancient West Africa became wealthy and prosperous because of trade.They had bustling trade centers,like Timbuktu,Gao,Jenne-Jeno,kombi salah,and Niani according to Mr.Clifton.King Mansa Musa had an impact on trade every trader that stopped at amli were welcomed,fed,housed,and safe.King Mansa musa took a pilgrimage to Mecca and everyone he meet he gave them a gold nugget and he also expanded trade.
People have dealt with many struggles and enduring issues throughout history. From the start of civilizations all the way through modern society, enduring issues are a part of life and the evolution of societies. Even today, you can look at modern society and find many examples of the impact of different enduring issues. All of these issues influence other civilizations, cultures, and societies in different ways. One such enduring issue is the issue of cultural diffusion. Cultural diffusion is the spread of different things from one civilization or society to another. Examples of things that are spread include religious and political beliefs, art and architecture. In ancient times, these influences spread as a result of travel and trade.
Trade was greatly increasing in these two trade routes around this time. There was a high demand for luxurious goods that were special to each region which caused a great increase in trade. This also occurred on the Trans-Saharan trade routes with gold. Religion also played a big factor in why trade was increasing in these two trade routes. Increases in technology helped trade become more efficient and faster. For example, the compass helped people trade along the Indian Ocean sea lanes. The
When a region has to export goods It’s usually involves the things that are not available in their region of importing. The ocean wind have worked perfectly with the Europeans to use, They formed a triangle trade, so then it gets to each area and get what they need to get to. Mostly when they ocean winds is great to ship they use this time for shiping main goods such as food, crops, sugar,cotton, copper, and especially guns. Mostly in the middle of age of exploration regions did not have money to get them food and things they need by shipping they would do a contract with the place that they will export from the contract they say, Like you give me food and I will give you copper, so it’s exactly like a deal and then they divide the amount of shipping in two, so two of them have what they want, but it was hard to contract because no one was
Throughout history, civilizations and nations have relentlessly competed to surpass one another. This is evident in the Age of Exploration in which explorers, such as Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Bartolomeu Dias, Prince Henry the Navigator, among many others, explored new lands and established overseas colonies for their respective mother countries. In these colonies, the Europeans converted the natives to Christianity, searched for gold and precious metals, and brought fame and glory to their countries. The goals of “God, gold, and glory” became a significant part of the Age of Exploration. Although the “three G’s” stimulated competition across the European states, the underlying push was by the Ottomans. The goals of the Europeans
The 15th century was the start of many voyages and the popular use of ships for trade, traveling, and exploration. Columbus, de Gama, and Zheng He, were all leaders
In the 1500s were there were only 13 colonies, they traded many items that soon became the center of there region, but, trading these days is isn’t as important as it was those days. The most important things is getting resources from other countries. If we can go back at that time when trading was important, there would be a lot of merchants in the ports trading many things. There were many farmers in the southern colonies that grow many things. There were also many ocean products in the New England colonies that they traded. If there were other things that also has to do with trading, then find it right in front of you.
In the time period from 600- 1450 C.E, at the beginning of the post classical era there was an increase in trade and major religions such as Christianity, Buddhism, and Islam began to spread through trading routes such as the silk roads. The silk roads made easier the spread of many ideas and goods such as weaponry across regions. As these religions spread they became the foundation of new empires and allowing a structure and keeping peace among the people. Over time trade became more and more important with merchants traveling long distances and selling luxury goods to the elites, and commerce on the Indian ocean allowed for an abundance of goods to be transported over a large distance by sea, thus new states and empires coming into greater
Before 300, there was small amounts of long distance trade along the trade networks. After 300, empires started to get larger and more powerful, the technology was improved so they could travel long distances, and the necessity for luxuries and raw materials were greater. That caused more long distance trade along the trade routes. In the Indian Ocean before 300, the amount of trade was limited due to the lack of good ships. After 300, the invention of dhow ships, lateen sails, and the compass made travel easier in the Indian Ocean. There was also increased knowledge of the monsoon winds so sailors could plan to work with the winds. The improved knowledge and inventions allowed more trade along the maritime trade routes. Before 300, there were very little ideas of religion and knowledge spread along the trade routes between Africa and Eurasia. After 300, there were many improvements to ships and knowledge of the trade routes that allowed more trade. The more trade caused more ideas to spread to various empires which caused significant changes. Traders before 300 had to carry their goods from place to place which made land trade not as efficient. After 300, the idea that animals could carry their trade goods was spread. The idea made land trade much more efficient and successful for
After the discovery of the New World, Europeans flocked to the continent in hopes to find riches beyond their belief as well as a pass towards the spices of Asia. The New World became a place of curiosity but quickly what was thought to be a dreamland of wealth quickly descended into a land known for its harshness and difficulty. Yet, Europeans were still interested to find what the New World had to offer. In Examinations of Newfoundland Sailors Regarding Cartier by Antonio de Ubilla, Antonio interviews multiple fishermen to gain information about Cartier’s third voyage in the New World. What this document provides is an insight into the mindset of Europeans during the 1500s and their attitudes towards the New World. This analysis will summarize the document and demonstrate how the
Why was trade so pervasive in the Islamic world prior to contact with the Portuguese? In what ways did the Portuguese change those economic networks? What did they not change?
