For long Voyages on the open sea, early Europeans explorers preferred a type of round ship known as a “Caravel” they were a triangular ship with triangular sails. This made it easier to sail any route in the sea and helped Maffeo and Niccolo.

Exploration Under Henry The Navigator A Sailing Study Center ◦Around 1419, Prince Henry set up a center for the study of navigation at Sagres, on the southwestern coast of Portugal. ◦Henry had many reasons for supporting exploration; he was curious about the world. ◦In addition to introducing others to Christianity, he wanted to use contact with other people to oppose the power of the Muslims.

21 A. Exploration Under Henry The Navigator Down The African Coast ◦In 1434, Portuguese explorer Gil Eanes was sent to find a route to Africa. ◦These expeditions explored every twist and turn of the coastline, naming bays, capes, and rivers as they went. ◦They traded for fish, sealskins, and seal oil, but further south there were more valuable commodities, including gold, ivory, pepper, and slaves.

22 After Bartolomeu Dias sailed around the southern tip of Africa, the Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gama sailed around Africa to India.

23 Bartolomeu Dias Rounds Africa ◦From the Guinea Coast, the coastline of Africa stretched south endlessly. ◦In 1487, three Portuguese ships led by Bartolomeu Dias sailed down the west coast of Africa. ◦As Dias went south, the weather turned bad, and in the wind and rain Dias rounded the tip of Africa without knowing. ◦Dias’s crew persuaded him to turn back, additionally a lack of food, and a need for ship repairs forced Dias to return to Portugal.

24 Vasco da Gama Sails To India ◦In 1497, Vasco da Gama set sail with 170 sailors and 4 ships; he wanted to reach Calicut on the West Coast of India. ◦In the spring of 1498, da Gama crossed the Indian Ocean from East Africa to Calicut. ◦In1499, he returned with just 2 ships and 44 sailors. ◦The sailors had found their long-sought sea route to India.

25 First the Portuguese and then the English, Dutch, and French set up trading empires in the East.

26 The Portuguese Take Control ◦When the Portuguese returned to the Indian Ocean after Vasco da Gama’s expedition, they were ready to use force to take control of trade. ◦By 1513 only 15 years after da Gama reached Calicut, the Portuguese had destroyed the Arabs’ hold on trade in the Indian Ocean. ◦Over a period of about 40 years, they set up trading post throughout the region, in places such as Java, Timor, Sumatra, and Macao in China and Nagasaki in Japan.

27 Power Shifts In The East ◦In 1494, Spain and Portugal agreed to The Treaty of Tordesillas. ◦Other European countries wanted a share in Eastern trade. In the 1600s they traded in the region through special companies. ◦East India companies had the legal right given by the government to conduct trade between England and the East Indies. ◦For the Dutch, English, and French people, trade was a way they could gain more power.
