SPICE TRADE

THE SPICE TRADE WAS AN IMPORTANT PART OF HISTORY BECAUSE SPICES WERE WORTH SO MUCH MONEY BACK THEN. BUT NOW EVERY HOUSE HOLD HAS A CUPBOARD FULL OF SPICES. TODAY THEY ARE INEXPENSIVE AND WIDELY AVAILABLE BUT BACK THEN NUTMEG WAS WORTH MORE THE WEIGHT OF GOLD.

CAUSES: WHO KNEW A SIMPLE THING LIKE SPICES COULD CHANGE THE WORLD. THE SPICES WERE ONLY GROWN IN THE EAST INDIES WITCH LED THEM TO A BIG AFFECT. THE SPICES WERE ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE EAST INDIES BUT THEY HAD A SILK ROAD FOR TRADING. DUE TO THE SPICES NUTMEG, CLOVES, AND MACE, THE EAST INDIES BECAME VERY POPULAR.

ALSO THEY MADE PERFUME OUT OF SPICES TO OBVIOUSLY SMELL DELIGHTFUL. LASTLY THEY MADE MEDICINE AND CURES FOR PEOPLE. ON THE OTHER HAND, THE EAST INDIES BECAME RICH AND CAUSED THE EUROPEANS TO HAVE AN MONOPOLY.

SPANISH CONQUEST OF INCAS

THE SPANISH CONQUEST OF THE INCAS HAD OVER 12 MILLION PEOPLE. BUT THEY DID NOT HAVE A WRITING SYSTEM BUT THERE GOVERNMENT WAS WORKING FINE. FIVE YEARS BEFORE THE SPANIARDS CAME THE INCAS WERE AT WAR. IN 1532, ATAHUALPA DEFEATED HAUSCAR IN BATTLE. THEN PIZARRO CAME ALONG WITH HIS 180 SOLDIERS.

AGAIN THEY ALSO ROAD HORSES THEREFORE IT GIVES THEN THE HIGHER POWER OF OTHERS AND THE INCAS NEVER SEEN A HORSE BEFORE. ANOTHER TECHNOLOGY THAT THEY USED WERE GUNS. THEY GUNS WERE A BIT COMPLICATED AND TIME CONSUMING BUT THIS IS MUCH MORE POWERFUL THAN A BOW AND ARROW. THESE LED TO THE EMPEROR BEING CAPTURED AFTER THOUSANDS OF INCAS WERE SLAUGHTERED.

EFFECTS; ATAHUALLPA OFFERED A ROOM FULL OF TREASURE TO BE RELEASED AND PIZARRO ACCEPTED. THEN ATAHUALLPA DIED AND NOW PIZARRO IS THE NEW SPANISH GOVERNOR. ALSO THE CONQUISTADOR PALACE OF LIMA GOT ASSASSINATED.

THE NEW NAVIGATION SYSTEM HELPED EXPLORERS TRAVEL MORE EFFICIENTLY WITH TIME AND IT DIDN'T MATTER WITCH WAY THE WIND WAS GOING. LASTLY, THE CANNONS, GUNS, AND GUNPOWDER WERE INVENTED. THIS MADE THE EUROPEANS VERY STRONG AND MUCH MORE POWERFUL BECAUSE NO ONE HAD TECHNOLOGY LIKE THEM.
