The University of Houston's College of Engineering presents this series about the machines that make our civilization run, and the people whose ingenuity created them. T he early exploration of the New World was full of misadventure. Take Frobisher's quest for the Northwest Passage: Martin Frobisher, born in 1535, took up sailing at 19. He became an excellent pirate. Piracy against Spain was legal in England, but Frobisher was too good at it. He got in the way of Queen Elizabeth's negotiations with Spain. She finally had to draft his talents into the English Navy. Then he met Elizabeth's counselor, John Dee. Dee helped convince Frobisher that he could find a Northwest passage to Asia through Arctic Canada. In 1576, Frobisher set out in three tiny ships to look for China. The largest had only an 18-man crew. Frobisher got to Greenland and thought it was one of the Faeroe Islands. A storm sank one of his three ships. Another defected back to England. He finally reached two large bodies of land. He thought the northern one must be Asia and the southern one America. Actually he'd found a 150-mile bay running into Baffin Island. On land he met Inuit Indians who laughed at his alien band. They'd been hearing about Europeans since Leif Ericson.

A Brief History
of Canada

Pre-History to 1599
Early Exploration Introduction In the beginning, North America and Canada did not exist... at least in the minds of Europeans. They knew of Cathay and of the rich trade possibilities there, but the ocean to the west was a barrier which seemed too vast to cross. When overland trade routes became blocked and the voyage around Africa was found to be long and dangerous, the European nations began to look westward for a shorter journey. Little did they know that they would discover a whole new world complete with its own unique peoples and riches. This section deals with the discovery and early explorations of Canada and the attempts by both the English and French to settle in and lay claim to the New World. It deals with the first encounters with the Native People and the fragile relationships which developed between the Natives and Europeans, and even among the Europeans themselves. It deals with the development of the fur trade which would effectively change Canada's history forever.

The Enigma of Hudson's Ancestry H udson's Bay today is an interesting part of the dynamic Canadian north. It takes its name from Henry Hudson, the English explorer. Hudson, after voyaging to the river, named in his honour, in New York for the Dutch, set sailing on an English venture to explore the Northwest Passage, this was thought, by the late medieval and early modern explorers of the Americas, to be the fast route to the far Orient. By following this fabled passage, it was hoped the monopoly of the Portuguese and later the Spaniards in the lucrative spice and silk trades could be broken. The quest for this Nothwest passage was to dominate a number of explorations of our continent.
We do know that our navigator did have connections with the Muscovy Company (otherwise known as the Worshipful Company and Fellowship of the Merchant Adventurers trading to Muscovia, or the Russian Merchants). Rodney Dennys, the present Somerset herald of Arms at the College of Arms, informs us that, "these merchants traded cloth of all sorts to Russia and also ‘much defective Wines and fruits, not fit to be spent in this Kingdom (of England)', together with all sorts of English commodities. In return they imported skins, fish, caviar, potash, isinglass and much else besides" (Dennys, 1975: 149). It was one of the Muscovy Company's vessels that Hudson used on his voyage to Canada. This might also indicate that Hudson was familiar with the perils of sailing in the far north and with the dangers of ice floes and icebergs, perhaps even with wintering over in a given location, before having entered Canadian waters.

D uring the late medieval period, the Mediterranean Sea was dominated by several powers: Venice and Genoa in Italy, the Islamic powers of Turkey and Egypt and to a lesser degree by such powers as the Knights of Rhodes. Trade in materials, spices, foods, slaves, etc. was commonplace. Endemic too were piracy and warfare between theso-called Christian powers and those of Islam. On the Islamic side too we ought to note that overland caravans from the far East travelled regularly across central Asia into the Levant, bringing such rarities as silk and teas and spices, then sold to Venetians for export to Europe at profit.
The maritime powers on the Atlantic were all too aware of the dominant position thatthe Italian middlemen played in selling such goods to Latin Christendom. In an attemptto find a new route to Asia and its material wealth, the sturdy Portuguese had for over half a century sailed down the west coast of Africa, discovering in the process gold, pepper, ivory and other natural resources as well as a staggering array of different peoples, animals and plants. Thanks to Bartholomeu Diaz and Vasco da Gama, the Portuguese finally rounded the treacherous waters of the Cape of Good Hope and sailed into the Indian Ocean, ultimately reaching India, China and Japan. Since the Portuguese colonized, fortified, mapped and organized their profitable trade routes in that direction, the Spanish and other Atlantic Ocean European powers had little choice but to look westward. Already by 1500, some Portuguese had landed in what we now call Brazil for stopovers on their long African voyages.

    The Portuguese explorer Dinis Dias is the first European to sail down the west coast of Africa to its westernmost point, which he names Cape Verde. Diago Cao explores the west coast of Africa for Portugal and discovers the mouth of the Congo River. Bartholomeu Dias of Portugal is the first European to sail from the Iberian Peninsula to the southern tip of Africa. Christopher Columbus completes four exploratory voyages to the Western Hemisphere. Sailing from Lisbon with four ships, the Portuguese navigator Vasco da Gama is the first European to round the Cape of Good Hope; after a stay in India, he returns to Portugal with half his original fleet. Sailing eastward, a small fleet of Spanish ships under the command of Ferdinand Magellan circumnavigates the globe for the first time. Giovanni da Verrazano, an Italian in the service of France, explores the North American coast from the Carolinas to Newfoundland, including the mouth of the Hudson River.

    The first attempt by Europeans to colonize the New World occurred around a.d. 1000, when the Vikings sailed from the British Isles to Greenland, established a colony, and then moved on to Labrador, the Baffin Islands, and finally Newfoundland. There they established a colony named Vineland (meaning fertile region) and from that base sailed along the coast of North America, observing the flora, fauna, and native peoples. Inexplicably, after a few years Vineland was abandoned. Although the Vikings never returned to America, their accomplishments became known to other Europeans. Europe, however, was made up of many small principalities whose concerns were mainly local. Europeans may have been intrigued by the stories of the feared Vikings' discovery of a "new world," but they lacked the resources or the will to follow their path of exploration. Trade continued to revolve around the Mediterranean Sea, as it had for hundreds of years. But between 1000 and 1650 a series of interconnected developments occurred in Europe that provided the impetus for the exploration and subsequent colonization of America. These developments included the Protestant Reformation and the subsequent Catholic Counter-Reformation, the Renaissance, the unification of small states into larger ones with centralized political power, the emergence of new technology in navigation and shipbuilding, and the establishment of overland trade with the East and the accompanying transformation of the medieval economy.

    Elizabeth I: exploration and foreign policy
    The reign of Elizabeth was a great age of English exploration.
    This expansion led eventually to the foundation of the British Empire in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but it brought England into conflict with Spain.
    The later years of Elizabeth's reign also saw a long and expensive war in Ireland.
    English merchants were the main promoters of exploration and discovery. They wanted to buy the Oriental spices (cinnamon, peppers, cloves) that were needed to preserve and flavor meat in an age before refrigeration. (Salting and smoking were also used to preserve food, but these methods had a worse effect on taste). Spices could be obtained through Middle-Eastern middlemen, but they charged a massive mark-up that made the spices very expensive. Europeans therefore wanted to establish a direct sea-route to the Far East so that they could buy directly from China, India, and the East Indies.
    Spanish and Portuguese seamen sailed west to America, or south (around the Horn of Africa) and then east across the Indian Ocean.
