The Age of Discovery was characterised by colonisation, expansion and exploitation.
experienced great changes  in understanding  the world. It was at this time that explorers discovered the world was not flat through the first circumnavigation of the earth. The exploration was the desire to seek new lands, set up new trade routes and to expand the Christian religion.
This was a period shaped by globalisation and movement of people.  ancient trade routes and earlier first movement of peoples  out of Africa.
happened much earlier … the nomadic urge and the need to fing better pastures

By the 15th Century however, the world became more globalised than ever before. Exploration led to the development of new trade routes and new understandings of distant lands outside of Europe.

Writing by printing c.1440

The first printing press was a hugely significant step in creating an ever globalised society, allowing information to spread faster than ever before. The creation of trade routes to the West Indies and beyond led to the importation of exotic goods, such as spices. New sought after commodities arose, and connections across the globe helped form stronger nations across Europe.

Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan and Amerigo Vespucci were explorers par exc

Migrations at this time were not just driven by the desire to explore new lands, but also by religion and conflict.

Internally within Europe, many movements of people occurred between the 14th and 16th centuries as a result of religious strife.the ostracism of Jews from Spain in the late 1400s.

This era also saw a significant movement of Protestants from the Spanish Netherlands into the Dutch Republic.

By the 1600s, religion motivated the Spanish to expel the Moriscos, and the French to expel the Huguenots.

The movement of people as a result of the Ulster Plantations was intertwined with religion and politics. Politically, by placing Scottish populations into Northern Ireland, King James hoped to create a wider spread sense of loyalty to the crown Religiously, the Scottish people brought Protestantism into the largely Catholic region of Northern Ireland. Language, religion and genetics were changed as a result of this population movemen
