PostSubject: Age of Discovery   Tue Dec 06, 2011 3:36 am

The Age of Discovery, also known as the Age of Exploration and the Great Navigations (Portuguese: Grandes Navegações), was a period in history starting in the early 15th century and continuing into the early 17th century during which Europeans engaged in intensive exploration of the world, establishing direct contacts with Africa, the Americas, Asia and Oceania and mapping the planet. Historians often refer to the 'Age of Discovery'[1][2] as the pioneer Portuguese and Spanish long-distance maritime travels in search of alternative trade routes to "the Indies", moved by the trade of gold, silver and spices.[3]
