Exploration and Innovation
Set sail for the renowned Spice Islands, legendary Cathay, or even the elusive South Lands with the instrument of navigation that allowed sailers to cross vast oceans, and explorers to discover entirely new countries. Through centuries of technological innovation, sailers managed to chart the entire world. By inventing a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth's magnetic North, 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could suddenly cross the seven seas. The compass truly was the implement that changed the Renaissance world, forever...
Brand New World
The Age of Sail allowed exploration to become possible; opening up the world for trade and cultural exchange. Early navigators and explorers setting out didn't necessarily know where they were headed. Guided only by the stars at night and a simple compass, they set out on their voyages of discovery.
