THE ILIAD Collection – Chapter 8

THE ILIAD Collection
Chapter 8: Uncharted Territories

The Age of Discovery 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 contact with Africa, the Americas, Asia and Oceania and mapping the planet.
The Age of Discovery can be seen as a bridge between the Middle Ages and the Modern era, triggering the early modern period and the rise of European nation-states. Accounts from distant lands and maps spread with the help of the new printing press fed the rise of humanism and worldly curiosity, ushering in a new age of scientific and intellectual inquiry.
