Example text

The war interrupted overland trade routes connecting England and Antwerp (in modern Belgium) to Venice, a Christian trading center, and thence to India and China. Needing a new way to their northern trading partners, eastern Mediterranean merchants forged a maritime route to Antwerp. Using a triangular, or lateen, sail (rather than square rigging) improved a ship’s maneuverability, enabling vessels to sail from the Mediterranean and north around the European coast. After the Hundred Years’ War, European monarchs consolidated their political power and raised revenues by taxing an already hard-pressed peasantry.

The European demand for sugar—a luxury foodstuff—led Columbus to take Canary Island sugar canes to Hispaniola in 1493. By the 1520s, Greater Antilles plantations worked by African slaves regularly shipped sugar to Spain. Half a century later, Sugar, Horses, and Tobacco Copyright 2010 Cengage Learning.

The north, along the Mediterranean Sea, lived the Berbers, who were Muslims, or followers of the Islamic religion. On the east coast of Africa, Muslim city-states engaged in extensive trade with India, the Moluccas (part of modern Indonesia), and China. Sustained contact and intermarriage among Arabs and Africans created the Swahili language and culture. Through the East African city-states passed the Spice Route, water-borne commerce between the eastern Mediterranean and East Asia; other trade traversed the Silk Road, the long land route across Central Asia.
