Discuss the powerful movements that transformed European society during the early modern era
Weegy: In history, the early modern period of modern history follows the late Middle Ages. Although the chronological limits of the period are open to debate, the timeframe spans the period after the late portion of the Middle Ages (c. [ 1500) through the beginning of the Age of Revolutions (c. 1800). From a global standpoint, the most important feature of the early modern period was its globalizing character — it witnessed the exploration and colonization of the Americas and the rise of sustained contacts between previously isolated parts of the globe. The historical powers became involved in global trade. This world trading of goods, plants, animals, and food crops saw exchange in the Old World and the New World. The Columbian Exchange greatly affected almost every society on Earth. ] (More)

Discuss the powerful movements that transformed European society during the early modern era
Weegy: Modern history From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Modern era) "Modern" and "Modern Age" redirect here. [ For other uses, see Modern (disambiguation) and Modern Age (disambiguation). Human history This box: view talk edit ? Prehistory Recorded History Ancient history Earliest records Near East Africa Classical antiquity East Asia South Asia Early Americas Middle Ages Early Middle Ages High Middle Ages Late Middle Ages Modern history Early modern Late modern Contemporary ?Future Modern history, or the modern era, describes the historical timeline after the Middle Ages.[1][2] Modern history can be further broken down into the early modern period and the late modern period after the French Revolution and the Industrial Revolution. Contemporary history describes the span of historic events that are immediately relevant to the present time. The modern era began approximately in the 16th century.[3][4] Many major events caused Europe to change around the turn of the 16th century, starting with the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, the fall of Muslim Spain and the discovery of the Americas in 1492, and Martin Luther's Protestant Reformation in 1517. In England the modern period is often dated to the start of the Tudor period with the victory of Henry VII over Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.[5][6] Early modern European history is usually seen to span from the turn of the 15th century, through the Age of Reason and the Age of Enlightenment in the 17th and 18th centuries, until the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th century. ] (More)

Describe the experience of the Middle Passage.
Weegy: The Middle Passage was the stage of the triangular trade in which millions of people from Africa[1] were shipped to the New World, as part of the Atlantic slave trade. [ Ships departed Europe for African markets with manufactured goods, which were traded for purchased or kidnapped Africans, who were transported across the Atlantic as slaves; the slaves were then sold or traded for raw materials,[2] which would be transported back to Europe to complete the voyage. Voyages on the Middle Passage were a large financial undertaking, and they were generally organized by companies or groups of investors rather than individuals.[3] Traders from the Americas and Caribbean received the enslaved Africans. European powers such as Portugal, England, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, and Brandenburg, as well as traders from Brazil and North America, took part in this trade. The enslaved Africans came mostly from eight regions: Senegambia, Upper Guinea, Windward Coast, Gold Coast, Bight of Benin, Bight of Biafra, West Central Africa and Southeastern Africa.[4] An estimated 15% of the Africans died at sea, with mortality rates considerably higher in Africa itself in the process of capturing and transporting indigenous peoples to the ships.[5] The total number of African deaths directly attributable to the Middle Passage voyage is estimated at up to two million; a broader look at African deaths directly attributable to the institution of slavery from 1500 to 1900 suggests up to four million African deaths.[6] For two hundred years, 1440–1640, Portuguese slavers had a near monopoly on the export of slaves from Africa. During the eighteenth century, when the slave trade transported about 6 million Africans, British slavers carried almost 2.5 million.[7] ] (More)

The first circumnavigation of the world was completed by the crew of what explorer? Ferdinand Magellan Prince Henry Christopher Columbus Vasco da Gama
Weegy: There are two answers to this. Ferdinand Magellan went on two voyages. One was eastward from Portugal to the Phillippines and back. [ The second one was from Portugal to the west around the world. When he got to the Phillippines, he was killed ina fight. His crew went on to continue the voyage and arrived back in Portugal. So the crew were the first to sail around the world in one voyage. But Magellan had already sailed around the world when he arrived at the Phillippines, although not in one voyage. He also had a Filipino servant with him, who had come with him from the Phillippines to Portugal, and came with him on the voyage around the world. So Magellan and the Filipino servant is one possible answer, and the man who captained Magellan's ship after he died is the other possible answer. ] (More)

Under what circumstances did the slave trade begin?
Weegy: In the first place, for hundreds of years, slavery was a common thing among African tribes, if there was a battle of some sort, the victors got the spoils, and often that meant taking the losers with them as slaves. [ This was also common around the world, and was not just in Africa. The early explorers of the African continent were also white men who believed that they had the right to take anything they wanted, and that the people they found in Africa, because they were not educated, civilized, or living the same lifestyles as the white men, took it for granted that they were inferior, and therefore, began to use them as slaves for their own purposes. Their hubris took over, and it was not long before there began to be slave ships, kidnapping people, and shipping them to some of the white colonies, where they were sold into slavery. This took place all over the world, no just here in America. As someone already stated, a small percentage of people in the Southern states actually owned slaves. Yes, it was a factor in their economy, but it was not universal! Do not ever believe that everyone in the South owned slaves. They did not. There were other people in other states who also owned slaves. George Washington for instance, though it is well documented that he freed them in his will. However, they were still left without an education or any real means to take care of themselves, so they stayed on the farm for generations to come. There were many European families that had slaves, and they were treated with equal disdain. If you will remember, the Romans were always taking people out of the "Land of Israel" to be their slaves. It was a very common practice. Yes, slavery has been around practically from the beginning of time, and that is a sad commentary for our civilization. I hope this was a little bit helpful. ] (More)
