Vikings were a group of people of Scandinavian origin who traveled by sea to many distant countries for a number of purposes including trading, settling and raiding.
The horror in their bloody faces, the anguish as you witness your own village getting ransacked by barbaric blood hunger Vikings. The Vikings are savages who have zero knowledge of morals and have no sympathy. Instead of laughing and watching them terrorize the peace, we need them to leave us alone as fast as possible. As you may have heard recently, my own small village two weeks ago was pillaged by the Vikings. It was ransacked and torn but what was the reason why?
In the days of 1450 Europe, the Europeans were emerging out of the dark middle ages. They were moving away from tradition and coming upon a new sense of enlightenment. During this time the Ottoman Empire, leaders of the Turkish warriors for the faith of Islam, ruled the East and all its surroundings. The Ottoman Empire gained, by force, control of the trade routes and closed off all of the trade routes to Asia, India, and other thriving trading nations. This was a problem for the Europeans, so they decided to try a new route and sailed west rather than east.
Trade played a major role in the Viking expansion as many trades ended up as raids. However, the Vikings established many trade routes throughout Europe. They also set up many trade centers. As well as this, craftsmen and merchants went to England, Germany and other countries to barter their goods. These trades were usually only performed once or twice every year.
The trans-Atlantic was an elaborate coastal trade route through which the colonies sold goods to one another, linking the North American colonies to England, continental Europe, and the West coast of Africa through the exchange of slaves, raw materials, and manufactured goods. One of the main impacts this Triangle Trade had was on the laboring systems of the new colonies which left some systems to their original plans of , while new ideas were also introduced. The trans-Atlantic route created opportunities in British North America from 1600-1763 that allowed colonies to maintain their original intentions of working to search for resources for Europe, while also opening many new doors which allowed growth in both labor and trade procedures in all parts of

The Impact of the New World in Global Trade People all over the world were affected by the global trade that was opened with the exploration of the new world. Between 1300-1800 CE people began to open trade routes that allowed people to trade all over the world. This allowed for new ideas and technologies to access parts of the world that they never had before. Now that there was an extreme increase in trade, a new merchant class arose in Europe. Trade was an important force for change leading to the desire for new resources and goods; drove exploration; and impacted societies and relationships between civilizations around the world.
In the 17th century England, sent ships to North America to try and colonize North America. There were three regions of colonies set up in the England colonies. There were the New England Colonies, the Middle Colonies and the Southern Colonies. Each region was different in many ways. Settlers brought their values with them, and their personal reasons for coming over to North America.
When English royalty began giving charters for the exploration of America, people had no idea what kinds of adversities they would face. While eager to obtain new land and sources of economic growth, many ignored the possible negative outcomes of exploration. English settlers would be forced to overcome human and environmental challenges that would make it difficult to establish and maintain permanent colonies in America from the time of Sir Walter Raleigh to the time of Opechancanough. When Sir Walter Raleigh organized the expedition to Roanoke, the primary reason to go to America was the possibility of establishing a profitable colony.
The Silk Roads played an important role in connecting Afro-Eurasia, both culturally and economically. The term “Silk Roads” was first used by Baron Ferdinand von Richtofen, a German geographer from the 19th century. He created the phrase to describe the routes between India, China, and the Mediterranean, which were used to transport items such as silk, livestock, glass, and precious metals. Historians have speculated that the roads might have been used as early as 2000 B.C.E. In the last century B.C.E., the Silk Roads experienced a golden age.
From 1600-1763, several nations vied for control of the North American continent. These nations included Britain, France, and Spain. The Spanish came to the North American continent because they wanted riches and to convert the Native Americans to Christianity. The French came to the continent to have new trading allies. They aligned themselves with the Native Americans to trade furs.
The Hudson Bay Company is a Canadian company that is one of the oldest in the world. Their initials HBC, are jokingly said to mean Here before Christ. The company was the major reason for growth in Canada. King Charles 11 of England is the reason the company was established in 1670, he granted the company a fur trade monopoly even though the land did not belong to him or his country. The success of HBC in the early years is due to the First Nations people, the Native American Indians that lived in the area.
The audience; my target audience was young Viking kids training to become warriors and young men! I think the language I used in my PowToon was well suited to this audience and was easy enough to understand. The language was simple to understand and I believe that I used the appropriate graphics. Not many wooden items survived the Viking age, luckily the Viking bow and arrow was one of the items that did. The Viking bow and arrow has been dated back to the Viking period and we have found bows in Scandinavia, we have concluded the Vikings did use bow and arrows.
