Prior to the eruption of the whaling industry during the 17th century, “Marine biologists estimate that there were as many as 4.5 million of the largest whales, plus millions more of the smaller whales, which includes their close relatives, the dolphins and porpoises” (Murphy 10). By the early 20th century, researchers expect that humans were killing over fifty-thousand whales a year, this staggering number brought many species near extinction (Home). Accurate estimates

There were many explorers that had made the treacherous journey across the Atlantic Ocean to North America, for instance: the Vikings had a major expedition to North America, in which Erik the Red was exiled from Iceland for committing manslaughter. He set sail westward and landed on Southern Greenland, and after many years Greenland colonists found the settlement of Erik the Red. Another famous expedition was by Bjarne Herjólfsson; a merchant whose ship was blown off course by a terrible storm, and, after sailing for three days westward, he founded an unknown land. Although, some might argue that all the Nordic explorations to North America were a collection of myths and were hoaxes, because there is not any sufficient evidence to show the Vikings imprint on the land. But, the undeniable truth is that the Paleo-Indians were the first human beings to conquer the vast American wilderness.

Amongst Europeans, fur clothing was popular, and the new abundance of fur bearing animals in North America fed their desires. The fur trade did however destroy the beliefs of Native American culture.

European traders came to America and traded with Natives for the pelts of animals. This resulted in beaver fur traders’ supply getting so low that they “could flatly declare that they had none,” The beaver, along with other fur bearing animals, had been hunted so extensively that the species became scarce.
Once Minnesota became a state in 1858, it was quickly settled by German, English, and Scandinavian immigrants. The fur and lumber trades, which had predominately run Northern territory economics, were replaced by iron mining in the north, wheat milling in central Minnesota, and farming in the south. With the rise of wheat milling came the Twin Cities, Minneapolis and St. Paul, positioned between the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers. Within twenty years, the rise of cities led to a rise in population and the inevitable urban sprawl, leaving rings of suburbs as the cities expanded. By 1870, main townships outside of the Twin Cities began to split into towns and villages.
Viking expansion in the early 8th to the late 11th century caused significant short and long-term impacts on Europe. One short-term impact of Viking expansion was the bloody raids that took place, allowing trade routes to be set up which distributed money through Europe,, the long-term impact of Norse words and their integration into modern-day languages, and the shipping technology that grant insight into aqua dynamics and allowed the evolution of the boat and for Vikings to travel quickly around vast bodies of water.

A major short-term impact of Viking expansion was an increase in raiding and trading within Europe.
