Unit 3

1450 CE – 1750 CE

Unit 3 covers the time period between the rise of exploration to the beginning of the age of revolutions in World History (1450-1750). This includes a great deal of intrigue in both the east and the west that famously includes the rise of the gunpowder empires in various regions of the Asian continent. The rise of the west from the Middle Ages causes ripples across the globe as many areas are colonized in this time period including much of the Americas. The start of colonization would cause an epic clash of civilizations in the Americas as well as the rise of chattel slavery which was significantly different than other types of slavery.
