Storyboard Text

  • After a tough journey home -- losing one ship -- Vasco da Gama arrived back to Lisbon Portugal a year later in the burning hot summer of 1499. da Gama presented the King with his findings and goods
  • Welcome home, Vasco! I am so proud of your accomplishments, negotiations, and exploring abilities
  • I have brought so many goods and have so many stories!
  • While Vasco da Gama's expedition to India was revolutionary, many historians have questioned whether his discovery truly opened European markets -- particularly in terms of spices.
  • Although my expedition was legendary, one must bear in mind other factors that contribute to trade and economic growth.
  • In 1524, Vasco da Gama passed away. Although physically gone, historians tend to agree that Portgual helped integrate spice markets in Europe and few places in Asia. This monopolization would not have been possible without da Gama's expedition to India. In this way, da Gama largely contributed to the rise of the Portugese Empire
  • Thank you for following my journey. Whenever you think of the spices in your food -- make sure you think of me!
