Sample text

Thus the records of the first encounter between Europeans and America and its residents revealed themes that would be of enormous significance for centuries to come. Europeans wanted to extract profits from North and South America by exploiting their natural resources, including plants, animals, and peoples alike. Columbus made three more voyages to the west, exploring most of the major Caribbean islands and sailing along the coasts of Central and South America. Until the day he died in 1506 at the age of fifty-five, he believed he had reached Asia.

Later Europeans did not know of the Norse explorers, but some historians argue that in the 1480s sailors probably located the rich fishing grounds off the coast of Newfoundland but kept the information secret. Whether or not fishermen crossed the entire width of the Atlantic, they thoroughly explored its northern reaches.

Teotihuacán’s commercial network extended hundreds of miles in all directions; many peoples prized its obsidian (a green glass), used to make fine knives and mirrors. Pilgrims traveled long distances to visit Teotihuacán’s impressive pyramids and the great temple of Quetzalcoatl—the feathered serpent, primary god of central Mexico.
