PRODUCT SUMMARY


During the Renaissance, sailors set off into uncharted waters around the globe in search of new trade routes and lucrative luxury goods. Advancements and innovations in navigational tools, including lateen sails and the astrolabe, as well as improvements in shipbuilding, aided explorers such as Columbus, Magellan and da Gama on their amazing journeys. Renaissance Travel, Trade & Exploration delves into the struggle for trade dominance in the Mediterranean between the Ottoman Empire and Europeans, the emerging role of the wealthy merchant class and the worldwide effects of expanded trade on people living during the Renaissance. Part of the multivolume The Renaissance for Students DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.


EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"...[a] well-produced interesting series...Technical quality is outstanding, with visuals that include European location footage, maps, reenactments (with narrated quotes from Renaissance figures), and still shots of Renaissance art and architecture. Audio is clear, with a background of period music...a very good choice for any library that needs curricular materials on this era."- School Library Journal (Jan 2004)

"These programs make good use of reenactments and art prints, and helpful captions list new vocabulary words. Thoughtfully organized with a modern twist."- Booklist (Jan 1 & 15, 2004)
