Encounters: Money in the age of discovery

(Tuesday) (Sunday)

Between the 15th and 18th centuries the riches of new worlds in the Americas, Africa and the Indian Ocean saw Spanish, Portuguese, British and French explorers and adventurers venture to new continents in search of new lands and wealth. The objects in this display illustrate the fundamental changes that occurred in this period of European expansion, which paved the way for the modern global economy.Between the 15th and 18th centuries the riches of new worlds in the Americas, Africa and the Indian Ocean saw Spanish, Portuguese, British and French explorers and adventurers venture to new continents in search of new lands and wealth.
